SOURCE: steering wheel very hard to turn left or right

The steering gear-oil must be filled to its proper level.
Next, make sure your balljoints, tie-rod ends, rack & pinion assembly are properly lubricated.
Wheel alignment, low tire pressure must be ok.

SOURCE: Scraping Sound When Turning Left and Right & Steering Locks Up

Careful - a long time ago there was a recall on Toyota's T100 steering wheel shaft. It could fracture - and might cause the problem you seem to be having.

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.

1996 lincoln town car cartier makes a steady groaning noise seems as if it comes from front of engine. Occurs continuously and then at times, not at all.

If it seems to get louder when you turn the steering wheel then check your power steering fluid level. If determined this is the cause of groaning sound but fluid level is right then you will need to bleed the air or the pump is going bad. Beyond that I need more info for further help.

It makes a groaning noise when I turn the steering wheel left or right

Hi! You may have a power steering issue. Please check the power steering fluid level if its sitting on the Max or Hi level. IF its not, then you may need to re fill it to get rid of the annoying noise. Plus, running on an almost empty power steering fluid may damage the steering pinion. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Car groans when turning corners

You need to describe the problem better. Does it groan only when moving and turning, or will it make the same noise just sitting there turning the steering wheel. If it only makes noise when moving, that rules out a ps problem, the ps doesnt know if you are moving or not. Does it make different noise if you are going to the right or left, same noise, different? I dont know about the reservoir, some of them have filters, but I dont know if Buick does or not. If it was, it would cause a whine, not a groan.

How do i bleed air from power steering pump from 2006 gmc duramax 2500

Routinely, you just jack the vehicle enough to have the tires clear the ground and with the engine on, turn full left till it bottoms out....then turn full right till you bottom it out and then repeat up to ten times.....

Right turn loud groaning

I would say you have bad wheel bearings on the front. More noise turning right means the left is REALLY bad.

loose belt or they didn't bleed all the air out of the system. check the level of the power steering fluid... now start the motor and turn the wheel all the way to the right till you go as far as you can... give it a few seconds like that... not shut off the motor... check the level of the fluid... top it up if you need to... now repeat that method again but to the left. that should bleed out the air


Please take a moment and rate this solution thanks
