I have a 2007 ford focus. I've had an ongoing issue with the car when I make a sharper than average turn. Every now and then, the car will make a moaning sound when I turn the car (either way)yand there is a very slight vibration I can feel in the steering column. The power steering fluid has been checked and is at a safe level with no signs of leaking. Eventually the noise subsides and the car is picky about when it wants to make this noise. I had thought that this problem would be difficult for a mechanic to check out if the car is not making the noise at the time of service. Then I noticed today for the first time, when I let off the gas there was another moaning sound. I'm almost wondering if there is something wrong with my wheel bearings or maybe the axel. My check engine light has never gone on and up until recently, I have not had any problems with this car. Can anyone give me an idea of what might be going on? Thanks!
