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! :)
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 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.
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.
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.
steering column bearing sounds like a worn out steering column... jack the front wheels off the ground both sides relieve load on steering wheel to see if it lessens the amount of feel and noise, if it does it shoud be the column bearing, replace bearings or complete column,,, also try with the wheels off the ground and safely supported to manualy steer the wheels by hand and see if you feel in roughness or hear any noises,should some minor resistance but be smooth in it movement if everything suspension and steering component wise is in good working condition... please rate my help.. thanks...
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.
if you feel it in steering wheel it could be your front axels. jack up the front end of your vehicle and turn the steering wheel to which ever way you hear it most, roll the wheel with your hand and see if you hear any noise email@example.com
