Hi - my chev suburban has 'stiff' steering driving in a straight line - feels like there is no 'play' in the wheel. Turns fine, no squeals, isnt heavy turning etc just feels stiff driving straight. Power steering fluid levels are fine. Any ideas? Thanks Dave.

If someone has adjusted the adjustment at the top of the steering box too tight you will have that type of feel in the steering.

Hi I have an 06 plate Micra which has a high pitched squealing noise when I'm driving either straight or turning to the right. The left doesn't seem to be affected the majority of the time and it stops...


Some cars have a "noise maker" to warn you that your brake pads are worn out.
Looks like you may need new brake pads. You can get someone to look at the calipers to check the thickness of the pads.
Hope this helps.

My 1996 maxima power steering pulley doesn't turn properly & it sqeals with a stiff steering wheel. The belt has proper tension & is new


Does kind of buzz at an idle and it whine when you try to turn? You could be low on power steering fluid. Sometimes people put the wrong fluid un it pump instead of power steering fluid which will cause problem because the fluid is too thick.
You could possibly have a pump going out on you.
Jack the car up to get the front wheels off the ground. With the engine off, turn the steering wheel lock to lock. If you feel any binding as you turn you may have a bent steering rack.

Front of car squeals when turning .Feels like a tire was wobbly going on the highway. Real screachy sound ....any idea what may be going on it or possibilities ???


There are several possible causes, varying in severity, that could be responsible:

  • Lack of power steering fluid
  • Bad or worn serpentine belt - would slip when turning causing a squeal and/or difficulty steering
  • Bad wheel bearings - this would cause the wheel to wobble, and squeal on turns
  • Bad ball joint(s)
  • Bad steering box

I have a 2007 toyota camry altese with 244,000km, it rides nice but the steering wheel is centred to be straight ahead and it feels like you have to overcome a spring or force to turn the wheel, if you...


I would start by having the drive belt checked for wear then getting a wheel alignment done. These camrys do have quite a stiff feeling in the steering, though if it feels quite tight I would have it checked out to see if there is a problem in the rack.

2004 chev silverado ext cab. No Power steering


Hi Hollings,

You description was very good, I need to ask for a specific.

When you turn to the left, the wheel is stiff like the engine is off or does it turn smoothly but the vehicle doesn't turn or seem to respond.

I'm trying to rule out broken mounts,

Also, if the wheel is all the way to the right, is it difficult turning back to the left the whole way, or half way. See where I'm going.?

Please comment back your findings

Best regards
Mike

Esp/bas light on, steering wheel off center after off roading


If your steering wheel is off center, this can cause the problem. Luckily this is very easy to fix -- you can do so even if you have little to no experience working on your vehicle.
1. Park the vehicle with the wheels facing straight ahead (drift forward until you are moving in a straight line). Don't worry about the steering wheel position. 2. Locate the steering drag link -- the diagonal rod coming from the bottom of the steering arm to the top of the passenger side steering knuckle (on the axle near the tire) 3. Loosen the two bolts on the rotating adjustment collar on this link. I believe these are 13mm. 4. Rotate the collar one way about two or three turns, check the steering wheel to ensure that the "Jeep" logo is perfectly horizontal. If it's not, continue rotating the collar (or move it in the opposite direction) until the wheel is centered. 5. Tighten down the nuts on the drag link adjuster. 6. Take her for a test drive and let me know how it worked!
