Change the power steering fluid. Use the Mercon V tranny fluid (also used in the power steering system).

Your power stearing pump is about to go out...should get it checked and replaced..if pump is good..then check the lines for clogs.

V6 3.4l. Why is there winding noise and low fluid level?

Turn the steering full to left then full to right ten times whilst stationary. This will bleed the system. Was it a new pump? If it continues go for warranty. If it wasn't, replace with new.

I'm bleeding the system after replacing the power steering pump, I already jacked the front end up and checked resivoir levels, and went end to end on the steering wheel, then lowered the car checked...

you are supposed to replace it with only Pentosin CHF-11 hydraulic fluid or something equivalent. And also maybe your used pump is bad, or you have air trapped. To bleed it turn lock to lock many times and hold it at lock for few seconds.Check this video out. Volvo S60 Power Steering Drain and Fill

I have a leak in the power steering column. What will happen once it all leaks out?? can I still drive it?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If it leaks out, the steering wheel will be hard to turn. Plus, you will then have to replace the entire steering pump if it goes dry. You need to keep an eye on the level and keep adding fluid as needed. You will still need to get the leak fixed. If you are running low on fluid, the steering wheel will be harder to turn and you will hear a winding noise when you turn the wheel.

I hear a kind of squeal or winding noise whenever turning the steering wheel in my 2005 Rendezvous,and I've added power steering fluid

your power steering belt might be loose or may have stretched due to weather related issues, or may have the adjustment worked loose. suggest you adjust the tension on the belt[power steering belt] youneed to have it tightened. you may even need a replacement pump. is it leaking fluid onto the ground? if so, it may be a loose hose or a busted hose. if you are mechanically inclined, please repost with specifics on if it's leaking fluid or belt is squealing? otherwise,i suggest you have it looked at from a professional. hope this helps and if you need further assistance with replacement of power steering pump, or directions of the belt tension,just ask. we will be happy to assist!

My 1999 Dodge Caravan is making a high winding pitch noise when aclerating? Belts in good shape, what is the noise, it's really loud.

This sounds like a power steering issue. Check the fluid and if it is full then the pump may be going out. The way to check if the problem is the power steering is to turn the wheel while the engine is running. If the pitch changes then it is a power steering issue. Hope this helps. Good luck.

The whining noise is typically caused by air in the system.

1) Raise the front of the vehicle off the ground. It will be easier to bleed air from the system.

2) Remove the reservoir cap, with the engine off, turn steering wheel completely to the left all the way to stop and then completely to the right all the way to stop. Repeat this several times to rid the system of all the air. Return the wheel to center.

3) Leave the cap off the reservoir and let set for an hour or more if possible. The air in the reservoir will rise to the top. Check the fluid level and fill as necessary.

Good luck, let me know.

This is definitely a power steering problem. I had this same problem about a year ago. I had to get my Power Steering Rack replaced, this fixed the noise and problem. You can add power steering fluid as a temporary fix, but your problem will not permanently go away. You are probably leaking fluid out of your steering rack.

The sound that you are hearing probably happens more often when you are acclerating around a turn, right?? Does it sound like a little foreign car in reverse?? Also, the wheel may be a little stiff when first starting out.
