Makes a noise wen turning left


Its hard to describe noises simply by text of course. I feel sure you have checked your power steering fluid, but in case you haven't do that first and try to make sure it has the correct fluid. A remote possibility would be CV joints, but they tend to make a clicking sound. A worn out PS pump or one low of fluid can indeed make a roaring sound. Pumps normally work flawlessly past 100,000 miles.

When I turn my steering wheal it makes a hollow sound


Check the power steering for low fluid in the power steering fluid reservoir on the front of the engine. Refer to your owners manual for illustration and location. If the level is low you have a leak, look for a red fluid on the ground under the car when parked.

MY CAR MAKES NOISE WHEN I TURN THE STEERING WHEEL


It's probally low on power steering fluid. If you open the hood, look on the left side right over the passenger tire. Theres a resivore there for power steering fluid. Unscrew the cap and wipe the dip stick clean. Then put it back in and pull it back out and see how far up the stick the fluid reaches. Make sure you put it in all the way so you get an accurate reading. If its low, add some until it says full on the dip stick. then put the cover back on, start the van and turn the steering all the way left and then all the way right a few times. The noise should stop as long as that was the problem. Windstars and known for having power steering leaks so I am going to bet that is the noise your hearing. It's a low toned, whining noise if it is low on power steering fluid. Hope that works for you. Good Luck.

My 2003 Buick Regal makes a load whinning sound when I turn. WHat could be causing this?


Hi, it could be a wheel bearing. if you turn left and you hear it it will be your right front bearing and visa-versa. could be the power steering belt that needs replacing, good luck with it.

Faint to loud humming noise while driving and turning...


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