It happens when I make a turn, especially so when parking. the noise is a lot like a groan, or a moan. It is not high pitched like a squeal. After the motor is off and the car rests for a while,. the noise disappears, only to return after a day, or a week, or a month. Anyone have a clue?

    First check all your fluid levels. The problem with intermittent noise, it's guesss work unless it happens while checking. If I was you, i'd bring it to your local auto repair facility before it get's worse. Goodluck
