Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Power steering went out and making a loud noise when turning.

Steering wheel was making a squeaking noise earlier, couple weeks ago. Now it is really hard to turn the wheel and is making a very loud noise. After I turn the car off it smells as if something is burning. Could it just be the fluid is low?

Yes power steering is most likely very low , repair leak , as the fluid is flameable

    might already have pump damage , yes there is a belt that turns pump , it should be tightened until tension is "banjo" tight , a return hose leak will cause fluid to bubble up and that will make noise too

I hit a median while turning left. Why does my vehicle make a loud squeaking noise when I turn the steering wheel or when I hit a bump?


Please get your car checked. You may have bent the Tie rods or the control arm and the Ball joint is making the Squeaking noise. Sway bar end links and Strut bearing will also make noise going over bumps.

Very often the power steering belt can cause this noise if it is loose or just worn. The pump itself can cause a noise check and make sure it is full of fluid.

It should like you may have a leak if it took a whole litre. Once you fix the leak you may also find the power steering pump still makes noise. This can be repaired by replacing the pump. I hope this helps.

Squeaks loud when turning the wheel mostly to the right. I have checked the power steering fluid, it is at the correct level. Its the kind of squeaking as if it were the tires inside an automotive shop,...


This sounds like the power steering belt is slipping, this will cause a loud squeal, check all the belts and make sure they are good and tight, mostlikly its the power steering belt as the noise only happens when the wheel is turned.

My car makes a humming noise when excellerating and is especcially noisey when turning steering wheel to the left. there is also a continous squeak. my husband put WD40 on the bolt on power steering box...


If WD-40 got on belt, and squeak went away for a while, it may just need a new belt. The humming noise sounds like a worn wheel bearing that should be checked and replaced if needed. If squeak goes away when you push slightly on brake pedal, it may be rotor on same side as wheel bearing making the noise due to slight shifting of rotor because of worn bearing.You can try swapping tires on front from one side to other to confirm it isn't tire problem as well. If noise shifts to other side, then it's a tire.

My steering column is make loud squeking noises.


The rubber "boot" at the firewall is chafing on the steering shaft. Spray shaft with silicone lube, then turn the steering wheel back & forth to work lube in. May require occasional re application.

1996 Grand Am power steering problem


check the level of fluid. fill it up to the proper level... turn the steering wheel all the way to the right stop and hold it there.. you should hear a noise... that's bleeding the air out of the system... now turn it all the way to the left and do the same... check the level and top up if necessary. if this doesn't fix it the rack and pinion my be in need of replacement or the steering pump.
