Is it safe to drive with a grinding noise?

Whether it’s a crushing, rumbling or grinding noise, any abnormal sound coming from your engine should be treated as an alarm bell. Grinding noises, in particular, could point to problems with several different parts of the engine from the alternator to the water pump or even the power steering.

What is the grinding noise when I turn?

If you are driving your car and it makes a noise when turning and it sounds like grinding, poor wheel bearings can be the cause behind it. Bearings act like a buffer between an axle and the wheel.
