It may be just a hose. You can get that fixed at a shop for cheap and then you can put more power fluid in. In should work then.

My car makes noise when steering


Check your belts. Steering belt could be too tight or too loose. As far as steering fluid goes, there could be some in there, but maybe not enough. Make sure the correct amount is in there. Not too little or too much. There should be a dip stick with a fill line on it to check.

My 2002 bmw 525i makes noise when turning the steering wheel


Please describe the noise. Is the noise inside the car or beneath the car? Is it a squeak, a clink, or a grind?
If the car has over 100k miles on it, and it makes a hydraulic pump whine when you turn the wheel, look in the reservoir and see if the fluid is still bright red. If the fluid has turned brown, many (including me) have been able to quiet the whine by removing the reservoir and flushing the gunked up screen in the reservoir out with solvent, and then replacing the power steering fluid with fresh fluid.
If you do this yourself, be prepared to dedicate a whole Saturday to the job. If you have any drips from your power steering hoses (common) this will give you the excuse to get in there and replace the leaking hoses while you are at it.

My 1998 Toyota Corolla is having an issue with the steering - starting yesterday, when turned to the left or right an audible grinding noise could be heard and felt - there was also resistance, to the...


The noise you are hearing and feeling is very likely due to a low fluid level. I'd suggest you start by filling the power steering reservoir to the correct level with the correct fluid. Cycle the steering from lock to lock a few times to see if the noise gets better or goes away completely. Monitor the fluid level to determine how quickly the fluid leaks out and also to see if you can tell where the leak is coming from.

Be aware though that the longer you drive the car with a low fluid level condition, the more damage you will cause and the more expensive the repair will be.

You ran it low so It made the noises which was burning the fluid. Just add some more fluid. It should stop making noises but if it does you may have ran it too long without enough fluid

My ford focus 04 auto makes a grinding noise when the steering is on full lock to the right also the power steering fluid gets low very quickly


you have a power steering leak, when in full lock position the power steering pump is actually sucking in air and this is your noise. you will have to locate the leak and replace the leaking part and fill it to proper level.Ford will accept trans fluid for power steering fluid.

Noise when turning the steering wheel


Sounds like a Power Steering Whine to me. Simply check your power steering fluid. If it is low, there is a leak somewhere. If not it's possible the pump may be on it's way out.

1997 Honda civic, fan belt?


It sounds like your power steering pump, not the belt. Have u checked the fluid level? If it's low it can make a 'growling' type noise. Any leaks under the car from power steering? U can check by putting a big piece of cardboard under the car at night, check where any leaks show up on it the next morning.
ålso check the belt for fraying or cracks (if u find any, replace it), also the belt tension, if it's loose, the belt may squeal (not what u describe),
