Probably has a bad tire on it. Take it to a local tire shop and have them check the tires for slipped belt or irregular tread wear.

2008 Buick lucrerne steering wheel making a whining noise when you turn the wheel.


Simplest solution is to check the belts on the front end of engine. Aquealing noise frequently comes from belts slipping. Tighten, or, if better than 60,000 miles of so, replace.

My 2000 toyota camry 4 cylander makes a screetch noise when the steering wheel is turned all the way either direction. Why?


First check your power steering fluid for the proper level and check the belt.Also Get a Friend to sit in your car and turn your steering wheel giving you an idea of your problem area.But it sounds like the belt slipping on the power steering pump or its low power steering fluid level.

My battery light comes on and steering wheel locks up. What could this be?


Steering wheel locks up? or does it get very hard to steer? If it gets very hard to steer sounds like your Serpentine belt is slipping. You may have a bad belt tensioner or possibly somthing leaking on belt causing it to slip. The belt runs the alternator and powersteering. Also check condition of the belt itself. Shiny or streached belt could cause it to slip also.

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.

Horrible squeal. If my 740 made a horrible squeal I would be upset also. These ideas - timing belt has somehow slipped out of time. Easy check. One of the other belts are slowing the engine any of them can squeal: The alternator belt The power steering belt The fan belt. Does the noise occur only when driving? Does the engine sound normal when revving in neutral? Does turning on the lights or a/c affect the noise? Does the power steering work when car is standing? Is the squeal heard when turning the wheels. A logical diagnosis will identify and eliminate these easy to fix problems.
