    Default turning groan

    everytime im driving at low speeds, turning corners in housing estates etc, theres an obvious groan out of the engine... its not the car labouring as i done it in different gears.

    Is it the dmf? because the engine is starting to rattle a tiny bit. Or someone said it mite be the power steering pumps or something... ?

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers
    Joe

    If it's the power steering pump, it will likely groan even when stationary when the wheel is turned. It would be more obvious when moving slowly on tight bends too.
