: Some weird sounds ... ??? HELP

06-10-2012, 10:34 PM
It was around 88F this morning when I started driving the car in NYC area.. Every single time the car drove through the holes or bumps it started squeaking / making some crazy noise from under the hood.. I didn't move the steering wheel to left or right. Was good on the highway though. I started thinking what could be wrong (the suspension system, brakes, etc.) Well the brakes are a year old and were checked by my mechanic.. So I let it cool down for 5 hours when I was doing my stuff in the city. When I started driving it didn't sound like before.. It was all good.. Weather was around 70F.. Any ideas what could it be? (outer tie roads have been replaced 6 months ago)

Another hot day I had pretty much the same sound like something metallic when I used my steering wheel.. It made some crazy sounds when I steered it all the way to the left... but to the right it was all good.... Now its not happening.

I have 2006 BMW 530xi with 77k miles... Any response would be appreciated!! Thanks

Sounds like power steering motor. Have it checked out.
