I've got a 2016 Jeep Compass high altitude limited. 39k. I understand this model has some kind of auto sensing 4 wheel drive where if one wheel isn't getting enough traction the 4x4 will automatically engage.
Occasionally when I turn the wheel approximately 1 full turn to the left or right I hear a rumbling noise when moving forward slowly, there is also a creaking/ grinding noise that accompanies it from time to time . The noises stop when I release the wheel a little.
This does not happen everytime I turn that hard. In fact i can turn the wheel all the way and hear no noise.
And there in no noise when I am in reverse.
It seems very random.
Please help

Sounds like maybe one of the front half axles need to be replaced.

Are your tires oversized? Could they be rubbing somewhere?

My typical guess would be a wheel bearing, but 36,000 seems premature for that.

One more guess: could a wheel sensor be damaged so it is rubbing?
