    Default Loud Popping sound!!!

    It started making a poping noise when I turn my car left only. It only did it a few times but now every time I only turn left It make a "pop" noise. It kind of sounds like a motor mount or bearing not for sure. What steps should I go thought to eliminate whats making the noise, o and by the way I'm going on a 500mile drive in 2 days. Think it can make it?

    did ya check the CV axle? check the rubber boots, one could be ripped and letting road **** get in and causing the axle to prematurely fail.

    Is it a continuous popping noise? Or a single pop? I'm thinking ball joint.

    ^ Agreed.

    To check the ball joint, lift the car on jack stand(s). Then use a pole or pry bar, placing it under the tire. Lift the bar upwards and watch the ball joint. If there is more than a 1/4" of play (which is actually way too much anyway), you've got a problem there. If it is tight, no play, then it could be other things.

    Inner/Outer tie rod, CV Axle, etc. CV axles tend to make clicking noises though, not popping. So like ricer said, it's probably your ball joint.

    Ball joint was also my first thought when I saw the title.

    mine makes a "popping" noise when i go in reverse and turn. either direction, no matter how slow or fast... obviously faster makes it worse, but it happens regardless.

    Is it when turning the steering wheel left or while actually driving on a left turn. If it's just while turning the wheel, I'd say dry BJ or outer tie-rod. If it's while driving on a left turn, definitely CV!

    It does it only when im driving and turn left. How much would it cost to have it fixed if it is the ball bearing?

    It sounds like the CV axle to me. But it very well could be a ball joint too.

    I had what started as a popping sound when making a left, then after not getting it fixed it turned into a constant popping when turning. i ended up needing both the cv and ball joint. once they were fixed in the long run (months later) iended up needing a new axle as well..
    that was in my sable, which i had wrecked not long before. after that endever it started spitting axles every month or so, so i traded it in for 1000$ and got the elantra

    When dealing with steering components on a FWD car, basically, one system affects another, and affects another. Letting whatever the problem may be go for too long, and you run into other parts, that by picking up the "slack", led to premature failure as well.

    But depending on mileage, it's always good to get new fresh stuff installed anyway, like struts every 60k miles, etc. Whatever the issue is with your car, I would suggest replacing everything, kind of. If it's the CV axle, replace the axle, and the BJ, and have everything else checked out as well. This way everything is brand new and will wear "evenly".
