Groaning in the column itself could be the column bearings, or perhaps the horn contacts, although they make more of a scraping sound. A little lube sprayed between the steering wheel and column may help that. If you're referring to noise in the steering itself, sometimes the front upper control arm bushings groan when they're worn out. Or power steering fluid loss due to leakage from rotted power steering lines under the van. Trying to address all that I can think of, but your question is rather vague.
It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use. Good luck Matt
Are you check the power steering fluid? If it's a moaning sound, when you're turning the wheel, you're either
low on power steering fluid, your pump is getting weak or (most likely)
your rack and pinion steering pump is getting weak.
power steering fluid is low. check and top it up or you risk damaging the pump.
after topping up to the full mark, turn the steering lock-to-lock several times to purge any air from the system then refit the lid. Take care not to get any dirt into the open pump and only use the correct steering fluid for your car or you may find the seals rot and leak, a steering rack for your car is over £600 plus a LOT of labour believe me.
The first thing to check would be to make sure the power steering reservoir is not running near empty, locate the filler cap for the power steering pump it should be marked and then add the appropriate amount making sure you don't over fill, that may make the sound go away if not we must move on to the next possibility, by the way if the noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel it is most likely the power steering pump or fluid level is low.
The probably lubed the intermediat shaft conenction. The loud poping noise could be from them not sitting the boot back correctly. Inspect your boot. As for the moaning noise Only thing I can think of is a hydraulic noise.
