Well if its not leaking and the oils up and the pumps not making any noise, its probably the hydraulic ram that actually makes the steering easy. The seals inside the ram have probably blown out. If you can take it apart u should be able to get replacement seals, but u should be able to find one at a wreckers. Hope this helps!

Creaking noise when turning steering wheel


Grab a grease gun with a needle fitting. Puncture your ball joint boots and grease them internally. They might just be dry and the fitting might not be getting grease where needed. Try that.

Steering wheel is hard to turn...is that power steering fluid? Is there a specific kind for 2001 Zx2?


Does your car make a groaning noise when you turn the wheel? It could be a few different things. The first thing you want to do is check your power steering fluid. If it's low, top it off and see if that helped. It just takes a standard power steering fluid, nothing specific.

If the power steering fluid was low and that fixed the problem, you need to ask yourself the question - Why was the fluid low? There's probably a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.

If the power steering fluid wasn't low, then there's a couple other things it could be. If the car makes a groaning noise when you turn the wheel, chances are that you have a bad power steering pump. If there's no noise and you just don't have any power steering at all then it could be a bad pump or a bad power steering rack.

Hopefully this helps you figure it out. Good Luck!

Hi, i have a 1994 jimmy gmc. having problems with the steering. it's hard to turn the wheel and as i turn the steering wheel it clicks. is it the power steering that is out?


i am sure you have checked the fluid level in the power steering pump, check to make sure your belt is tight, if you have a single belt, make sure it is not past the wear point and letting your pump slip. find your idler pully and on the front you will see a big nut, a spring, and a pointer (kinda small and square). if it has reached the end of its movement, your belt is warn. if all above are ok, then you may have a bad pump.

Chevrolet impala 2002 wheel noise


If it's a clunking noise during turns and manuevers, it is probably your intermediate steering shaft. It is a known problem, and is easily fixed if you have a bit of patience. The proper way to fix it is to remove the shaft (the shaft that links your steering wheel to the rest of the linkage for steering) and cram new grease into it until it is squirting out the other end. This will fix it for a few years or permanently. A short term fix, which is easier and does not require any removal of parts is to get a can of spray stuff (I can't recall what it's called, but there are a few out there) which is basically lube, pull away the boot that coveres the shaft and spray most of the can into it. This will fix the clunk also, but for a shorter period of time. If it comes back, you will need to repeat the spray, or get it re-worked correctly.

How can i be sure it is power steering


This noise is the power steering pump, it is very common on all Fords that use the Ford style round resovoir pump, make sure u have the system flushed out before u install the new pump or the ground up parts of the old pump will ruin the new one.

Breeze Steering Noise


sounds to me like ur steering pump is going (sounds like a weird humming). Dodge has had a weakness on their power steerings since the early 80's and automatic trannies as well.
If u want an experienced opinion, get rid of that car soon as u can and get a honda or toyota.
I guarantee u ur problems with that car will not end soon.

If ur noise happens only when ur sterring wheel is turned all the way to one side and especially if it's always on the same side, then it's one of the 2 axles (CV joint to be more precise) and it sounds more like a quick knocking (like a woodpecker kinda).

Hope this helps.

Solid possibly but you will need to have a wheel alignment down as well as inspection of tie rods and ball joints as well as the rim and tire. just exactly how hard did you hit it ?

Seems to be problem with power steering. makes horrible grinding noise when turning left or right. have spent thousands with different mechanics. they have never figured it out. but it seems to be with the...


Do you have a Grand Cherokee with full time all wheel drive? If so the viscous coupler in the transfer case could be at fault. They fail 100% of the time in those jeeps at around 100,000 miles + or -. In tight turns after the t-case warms up the Jeep will make an awful howling noise and the tires will usually chirp on pavement. The only fix is an updated viscous coupler or a new t-case.
