Question about 2000 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Squeal which sounds like it's underneath the car.

Car squeals intermittently, but is getting worse daily. Seems to make more noise when steering wheel is turned to the right. Sometimes stops squealing when wheels are straightened up. Also makes noise when you go over a bump or when the road is not even or sloping and car is slanted. Problem started after I had new brake pads put on. Mechanic thought maybe brake pads were not good and replaced them again. Didn't squeak for a week and then started again. The sound is almost like a cricket sound. Squeals when you are just driving down the street or highway regardless of the speed. Even does it at 70-75 mpr.

    Had the rotors turned a week ago and so far no squeaking. I believe it might be fixed.

    did u buy cheap brakes? btw there is anti squeak stuff u can put on brakes to stop squeaking. but turning in in a direction shouldnt make that sound worse but a bad power steering pump would do that when u turn 1 way

Can't find the source of the squeal


Year make and model ??
The belt could be glazed and slipping even if it is tight.
You could have a weak belt tensioner too.
The noise when the ac or heat is turned on can be the extra load from the ac compressor or the alternator. The compressor cycles on and off especially in defrost mode.
The load from the alternator is the first noise of the day. As the belt warms up it becomes better at handling the load of the accessories.
Even tho the belt looks fine, you may have to replace it to get rid of the noise.

90 Dodge Dynasty 3.3 squealing serpentine belt


Sometimes when you have things changed out on an older car like that it will tend to show the next problem. Take the serpentine belt off and check all of the other pulleys. I am willing to bet that there is another one that is bad. Water pump, ac compressor etc.... The belt is trying to bind up that's why when the rpms get close to idle the car wants to stall

When turning wheel a squealing noise comes from the steering coloum.........seems like it might be worse going into a corner hard........may sound like something turning in the coloum itself...............


The squealing noise when turning the steering wheel happens in most cases when the power steering fluind is low. Check to see if there is power steering fluid in the reevoir. If not add fluid to the proper level and the squealing should stop. Good luck

When I go to turn the wheel in my 2000 ford ranger I hear loud squealing noises. I checked the power steering fluid and its full. What can it be?The squealing starts as soon as I turn the wheel to the left...


The power steering pump is normally connected or driven by the engine with a V-belt. A loose belt can cause squealing as soon as the power steering come under load (e.g. steering left or right while stopped).

Check the tension on the V-belt directly connected to the power steering pump. This may need replacement.

Hoep this helps.

1984 Toyota PU 4WD 22R Engine Makes Squealing noise at PS pump


you have to bleed the power steering system. you have someone turn the wheels to the left while you watch the power steering fluid level adding as needed. than repeat turning the wheels to the right. and repeat until the noise seems to get quieter and you don't have to ad any more fluid.


hope this helped
please rate well

Clicking/Squealing When Turning Wheel


Could be two problems. First the power steering; Check the tension of the drive belt for the power steering and the condition of the belt. If that appears to be OK, check the level of the fluid and its condition or apperance compared to new fluid that is recomended by the manufacturer. If that appears OK, it could possibly be the power steering pump it self. Second the clicking; It is most likely a bad CV (constant velocity) axle. Good Luck.
