SOURCE: My 2003 Ford Windstar whines when turning the steering wheel.

The power steering pump has gone bad. Consider replacing it because if serviced it will still show this sign in a little while.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 03 Windstar makes a whining noise when idling and

When you checked the power steering fluid level were there any indications of excessive foaming? There are three things that would cause a whining noise from the power steering. 1- low fluid (you checked that so that is not the culprit), 2- loose steering drive belt (you should not be able to press down on the belt more that about one inch between the steering pump pulley and the crankshaft pulley), 3- power steering pump bearing worn out.

SOURCE: Steering wheel is somewhat tight and makes loud

UNLESS U KNOW HOW TO DISARM THE AIRBAG DON'T FOOL WITH IT, IT CAN INJURE YOU IF IT GOES OFF! I ALSO THINK YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE STEERING RACK ASSMEBLY, THIS IS THE CAUSE OF THE HARD STEERING EFFORT, HAVE BEEN A FORD DEALER TECH FOR 30 YEARS KNOW THIS CAR VERY WELL. ANY FRONT END SHOP (LIKE TIRE STORES) WILL CHECK THIS OUT FOR FREE AND GIVE U AN ESTIMATE TO REPAIR THE RACK.

I have a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country Minivan. When turning the wheel either way, the car makes a horrible grinding noise and the steering wheeling makes a whistling noise at the same time.


i don,t know what the whistling noise is but it sounds like your cv joints may need to be looked at. the bearings in the cv joint maybe going bad.

drain all power steering fluid and replace with dextronIII/mercon transmission fluid start the vehicle and turn the wheel back and forth from lock to lock bouncing the wheel against the lock about 5 times on each turn for about 5 minutes
if this doesnt work you are probablygoing to need a new power steering pump

Cannot turn steering wheel


Make sure that the belt is not glazed and slipping on the pulley - they should both appear to be turning at the same speed. There is a chance that you have burned up the power steering pump and the noise you hear is the bearings complaining about the lack of lubricant they incurred.

Steering problems


the windstar is very common for leaking powersteering racks, one way to check is to squeeze the boot that goes over the inner tierod and onto the steering rack, if it is squishy you will require a new steering rack
