Question about 2000 Subaru Outback

2 Answers

My car is starting to make a squeaky noise and shudder a little when turning the steering wheel while stationery (ie pulling out of a park etc) I feel a shudder in the steering column when turning at slow speeds. Feels like wheels or joint. I just had head gaskets replaced and when I took it back in they found a throttle cable routed wrong and rerouted. I am still having same problem. Car is a 2000 Subaru Outback.

They supposedly checked all fluids but said that replacing the pump might be the solution. They removed a bracket as noted in a TSB on similiar problem which helped for a day but still having the shudder when turning at slow speeds.

Thank you

Hi there,
It could be your power steering pump. Have you put fluid in your pump lately? Try that. I hope this helps you. Let me know. Have a great day.~MWD

While stationery when I turn the steering wheel


This should be expected if you have power steering. The movement of steering wheel in stationery is demanding power which is drawn by revs going up in the engine. Make sure you have adequate level of steering fluid in the reservoir. Check your cars maintenance manual for the type of oil. If there is a burned oil smell then it needs to be bleeded and refilled. Will require a mechanic to do that.

Much will cost replace power steering


the hard power steering is given away by the loud squeaky noise . It is the drive bely slipping from worn out or needs adjustment.. If the key problem is in the switch the replace the switch of if it is not engaging the starter motor have a look at the battery connections (shiny clean and tight) or the solenoid or starter relay.

Check the belts. If you can, open the hood, and crank it up cold, with the a/c and lights and rear defroster on, if the belts are noisy, spray water on them with a squirt bottle, if the noise stops, then replace the belts.
