How do I troubleshoot a noise that I hear when my car either goes over bumps or when I make a turn?

I have a Nissan Altima.

In any vehicle if a noise is coming under the hood. and it happens when you hit bumps or make turn. start where it's easy "bushing". sometimes the bushing in the stabilizer bar bushing could have worn down. which will cause a clicking nosie if it is in the suspension system you will have to take it to a mechanic.

I think this problem might occur as an effect of poor wheel balancing. You could check your wheels first whether it needs any replacement.

Well that would be something in the front suspension. I would get under it and visually inspect the front end. Making sure everything is tight and well lubricated.

Take it to a shop and let them test drive it they will know right away, most can give you an idea where to start at.

If it is a popping sound going around corners, it is likely a bad CV shaft. It could also be a bad strut that creaks slightly going over bumps or around corners.

It seems that your radiator on your current Nissan might be going out pretty soon. In order to fix this you will need to purchase another one for about fifty or sixty dollars.
