Question about 2007 Saturn Outlook

1 Answer

Moaning noise in steering column

I have a low moan in my steering column when turning the wheel. I took the truck to the shop today and they indicated there were 2 bulletins on this. SO they did what the bulletins said to do and lubed a piece maybe a bolt or something under the steering boot, I think they said. I left and the moan is still there but worse and now the steering column is popping when I am turning the wheel...I had a loud whine about a year ago and they switched the power steering fluid out for sythetic and the sound went away. This new sound is totally different - anyone have any ideas

    I too had the same low moaning noise whenever I drove my 2007 Saturn Outlook as well as when driving at low speeds. The problem turned out to be a bad power steering pump. Thankfully my Outlook is still under warranty and got it fixed for no charge.

The probably lubed the intermediat shaft conenction. The loud poping noise could be from them not sitting the boot back correctly. Inspect your boot. As for the moaning noise Only thing I can think of is a hydraulic noise.

Why is the steering making a moaning sound on 1991 volkswagen westfalia ?


Groaning in the column itself could be the column bearings, or perhaps the horn contacts, although they make more of a scraping sound. A little lube sprayed between the steering wheel and column may help that. If you're referring to noise in the steering itself, sometimes the front upper control arm bushings groan when they're worn out. Or power steering fluid loss due to leakage from rotted power steering lines under the van. Trying to address all that I can think of, but your question is rather vague.

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

Power steering moaning sound during turning left or right


This is most probably due to low powerstering fluid in the system, you can simply top it up and have the steering rack pipes and pump checked for leaks.

Noise fron tire nissan altima


Are you check the power steering fluid? If it's a moaning sound, when you're turning the wheel, you're either low on power steering fluid, your pump is getting weak or (most likely) your rack and pinion steering pump is getting weak.

Keep us updated.
