Sounds to me that the power steering belt is loose. If it is a 2.4 litre engine it has two serpentine belts. You should replace the belts especially if it was smoking.

Sounds like the power steering pump is locking up and the belt is slipping. Get it checked out before you drive it.

My granddaughter's 1999 Sportage steering makes quite a bit of noise when she turns the wheel...hard left at low speeds...especially when she has been parked.


Check your Power steering fluid, lines, and pump. It sounds like your pump is going out, however, check the lines before hand to make sure you haven't just lost the pressure.

Noisy power steering on cold start goes away when warm


what type of noise ? if it is squeeling, check the level of power steering fluid, after you are sure the level is up , turn the steering wheel as far as it will go one way and hold it there for a couple seconds... then turn it all the way the other way. that will remove any air in the system.

Could be either a loose belt or you are low on power steering fluid,or the power steering pump could just be worn out.

The squeeling noise you hear could be the bearings in your power steering pump, when bearings go bad they tend to make a squeeling noise.
