This is often caused by a loose or warn belt that operates the power steering pump .(fan belt) . the belts should be changed every few years .. the new belts have to be tensioned correctly .. if you are not experienced then a tension gage should be used ..

A quick way to check for belt squeal is to crank the engine, open the hood, and get a can of WD-40. Spray the belts, this will cause the belt to temporarily quit squealing. Note that the squeal could be from a bearing from power steering pump, air conditioner, alternator, or anything else that has a bearing. Another thing to pay close attention to is the tension pulley, they will be a distinct squealing sound before going out and that may be your whole problem.

2002 hyundai elantra power stearing pump replaced. Loud squeal and chatter when stearing left or right. HELP


was the p/s system bleed of air properly before running the new pump. wheels should be off the ground and the fluid reservoir full then wheels turned from left to right all the way and top of fluid as needed. then start engine and continue to cut left and right. fluid aeration will cause premature pump failure and noise. also ensure that no other parts are restricted, i have seen faulty valves in the rack or lines cause restrictions in the flow and cause the pump to fail even new ones. hope this will help you

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.
