This is most likely caused by the power steering pump, use a wooden dowel and put it against the pump body, this will amplify the noise and allow you to pinpoint the exact location, if it is not the pump check around the engine for the source, be careful!

What kind of noice are we talking about. If it is a wining noice it could be the power stearing pump but if it is a grinding noice it would be best to change the whole column it will save you alot of headache.

BURNING SMELL FROM ENGINE, CAR WONT TURN, WYNING OF POWER STEERING BELTS, NO OIL IN CAR MAINTANCE OF THE BELTS, MAYBE THE TIMING BELT MY BE BURNT OUT


The whinng noise is due to p/steering pump cavitation eg. low oil, air in oil due to pump being worn out.

Check belt tension.

Nothing to do with timing belt.

Screaching noice on passanger side and drained battery


It sounds like the alternator has went out. They have bearings in them that eventually wear out. When this happens, they can make a screaching noise, or the bearing itself can lock up, causing the belt to slip and make a similar noise. Both of these scenarios will get louder as you accelerate. When the alternator is not charging your battery correctly, your vehicles electrical system will drain the battery.

I was told its the waterpump that is making a load snorkeling noice what is its if not? almost like a dieseling noice also


Yes the water pump can make noises but there is also the belts that can make noises.
So pour some water when the car starts on the belt and pump area to see if the sound stops, if belt noise it will stop but if this is the water pump, the alternator bearing or the idler pulley , it must be checked.

My car doen't start. The power is fine, but it makes a wining sound. Mitshubitsi colt 2001


Starter solinoid is stuck and is not engaging the starter into the flywheel. You need a new starter but for the moment, get a mallet and hit the solinoid, the small cylinder like thing on the side of the start a few good times then try it. If you can't get it to go I suggest getting a new starter and changing it on the spot, it's pretty easy. Cheers bro.

Hi I am Vortash I have heard that the oil pump bearings do make a noise when they are failing this allows the oil impeller to touch the sides of the pump wall and make a scraping noise .. I have never actually heard it myself .. I would have tested oil pressure from the pump before re assembly and probably fitted a new oil pump at any case as the engine was stripped down that far ?. hope you find your problem sorted soon good luck regards Vortash
