What is cause of power steering noise from ford galaxy

Check your fluid level first. If the fluid is low it will cause the power steering pump to make noise. Moore noticeable when in parking lots and driving in the city where you are making a lot of turns. Look for leaks. If you fill the power steering resivor to the proper level and the fluid leaks and you can not see the leak it may be your steering rack. The fluid leaks into the boots and sometimes goes un -detected. You can poke a small hole in the bottom of the boots and see if fluid leaks out. If so the steering rack is leaking and should be replaced

Put new power steering pump on and bleed lines and still seems like air in lines cause I get bubbles when it runs and my oil level starts in neck of resivor and when car starts it drops way down why would...

Hello, Probably the best way to bleed this system is to jack both front wheels off the ground. Then move steering lock to lock 10 times with engine running and steering cap loose. This will eliminate backpressure from expanding hot fluid. Secure steering reservoir cap and shut off engine.

If this does not help, sometimes you have to bleed the hose connections on the Rack and Pinion to get rid of all the trapped air.

How to identify the power steering motor in the

Look where your power steering resivor is located...trace the hoses coming out the side or bottom to the pump on the engine. Sometimes the resivor for the pump is drectly above the pump itself but unlikely with your vehicle. Replacing it will be a joy for you (not really) as you will have to release tension from the main motor belt, remove that from the power steering pump and then manage to have enough room to get to it to replace it.

How or where is power stering resivor

From the front of the car, walk around the passenger side and shine a light down the fire wall. If you lean in you will see the cap. I used a tranny funnel to add fluid to mine.

2002 pontiac grand am The steering is very tight. After you make a turn the wheel will not turn back by it's self.You have to manually turn the wheel back straight.Any idea's of what the problem could be?

Does the power steering pump make noise, it is probbably low on fluid or faulty pump the first thing I would check is the fluid. I am not sure which engine it is but if its the one I think it is the resivor is hard to get to located on the passenger side behind the engine next to the fire wall. If it is low check for leaks. The pump could also have a bad valve. The other possible cause could be the rack and pinion but that is usally a less common problem.

I'm leaking coolant, What will the problem be? Can I fix it my self?

see for crack's or leak in any of the water or coolant circulating line connected to the engine, radiator, & coolant resivor bottle. see for those part's this are rubber tube connected from engine to the water or coolant liquid cooling system. see for that if your coolant resivor is not crack or broken that can too also cause the problem. see for raditor weather it is ok or not & lastly finally see for water pump system in engine that can also cause the problem if still doubtful just look for your nearest VW, SKODA, AUDI ..etc. dealer or authorised service centre for the help & so till then my friend have happy motoring & see you soon....!

Power steering whine

I don't know if this will work, but if it is the same whinning sound that I have heard, all it takes is to buy some belt dressing and spray on the belts and pullys.
