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

Volvo v40 steering squeal


If high pitched noise happens when you turn the steering wheel then look to the power-steering belt.

When turning the steering wheel to the extreme end either to the left or right, hear a sequeaking noise.


How long have you owned the car before discovering this noise? Have you replaced the tires recently? I'm not sure what your squeaking noise sounds like exactly, but it sounds like it could be one of the two problems. If it sounds kind of like rubber squealing your tires may be the wrong size for your car and at extreme steering degrees the tires can rub on the car in a number of places. If the squealing sounds more internal like a muffled tea kettle and you can feel it through your hands (even slightly) while holding the wheel it's probably your power steering. If your power steering fluid isn't low then you make want to get your power steering pump checked. This is always better than waiting until your power steering pump goes out on you while you are driving down the highway (usually happens in the middle of a curve). I can personally tell you that one is no fun at all! :)

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

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...


excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

93 Accord SE squealing sound when steering wheel is turned


your power steering belt needs to be tightened or replaced. It' slipping, causing the annoying squealing. The more it slips, it 'glazes' the belt, making it easier to slip, resulting in the condition getting worse.

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.
