I have an '88 accord that recently started making a knocking or ticking sound whenever I'm turning. What could be causing that?
The most common cause is a worn CV joint (constant velocity joint). They are located on the axel shafts on both sides of the front wheels.
The CV joints are covered by a boot. When the boot is worn and tears the grease is thrown out of the boot and with driving road dirt gets in to the joint and wears it out.
The easiest way financially to do the job is to have the axel shaft replaced by a rebuilt or remanufactured shaft. This shaft is inspected, repacked with grease and gets a new boot on both the inner and outer shaft and installs fairly easily by you or your local mechanic.
Have your mechanic test drive the car to confirm the problem before you start buying any parts.
