    hi make sure tyres are correctly inflated ? as this could be o/load on p/steer pump also check the pump drive belt is not worn or slack? this would give squeel sound as you turn wheel especially when stationary not to mention scrubbing of tyres as powersteering is is easy to turn wheels when stationary but has adds unnecesary but avoidable strain/load on steering parts if you turn steering full lock at stationary ? b4 p/steering it was easier to turn wheel if car was moved slowly and tyres were rotating remember ?

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

When i turn the wheel too far to the left or right the car makes a strange noise. when i brake period the car makes a strange noise. when i am doing 45 mph and up when i start to brake the car starts to...


Well, short of hurting your feelings.

When you brake you hear a strange noise. The sounds brakes may make, should be something you are familair with.

When doing 45 mph plus, the car starts to shake. Now tell me, youv'e not experienced this many times in your life!

Turning left or right could be a worn steering rack,mostly because you never change power steering fluid,or upper strut bearings or any other suspension parts starting to wear. Or, it's just you noticing different sounds, than when it was new.

When you turn the wheel too far to either side,you hear the power steering pump squealing and telling you to stop. Another bad practice.

Now I would conclude, that you need to strip all four brakes off the vehicle and completely go through some sort of brake repair or service. I hope you already figured that.

Toyota Corolla, manual 1991, Squeaking sound when turn the steeri


This is normal for a 210K Toyota Corolla. What you are hearing is the sound made by the power steering pump. Check fluid level and fill as needed. Some noise in the instances you are mentioning is normal.

When turning the steering wheel of my 2003 Saturn Vue, it makes a gutteral noise from the steering column. It is like a bullfrog croaking as long as the wheel is being turned and returned.


mine did the same thing. Where the steering column goes through the firewall (floor) there is a rubber seal. That seal has gotten dry. Apply a small amount of lube where the shaft goes through and turn the steering wheel. This helped eliminate my squeal.

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.

Loud squealing noises when I turn the wheel of my 2000 ford range


It sounds like the power steering belt is too loose, tighten it up a bit but not too much just enough to make slipping belt stop.

1997 dodge avenger 2.0, belt squealing


Hi

The Power Steering Belt tension requires adjustment, to give it more tension, to cure the slipping, resulting in the squealing, or perhaps renewal, due to cracking or excessive wear.

Your Power steering Belt, belt is your primary problem.

Good Luck !

A FixYa Would Be Nice, Thank´s......John.
