ion jets facing left and right on the front and back. Setting them to "Thruster" mode will allow the AI to use them appropriately.
Submarines can turn using rudders, just like ships. Make sure they don't roll too much though.
Sideways thrusters will work too, as will a combination of both.

In space you'll need ions though.

So far it does not seem to change the direction of my ship it just keeps going in a straight line. i have several ion thusters on the back and on the front (2 on each side and in the back and front so 8 in total) all facing into the ship and on the inside i have 3 thrusters facing out of the ship.

and they were all auto set to thruster
the thrusters in the back need to be set to Reverse Thruster, that would explain why your sub aint turning, they cancel each other out

alrighty i was talking spaceship but yea ill check
Also, you stated "On the inside i have 3 thrusters" --Do you mean you have thrusters in an encosed area? If so, thrusters do not work that way. They need at least 5 blocks of space in front of them in order to work (or 15 blocks, I can't remember).

Yea i have messed around with it and have taken all the thrusters on the inside out and have set it up like above but it stillwont turn

Set aerial ai degrees until roll to turn to 180. (I think it's the second option)

If you want you can also upload it to the workshop and we can take a look at it for you.
