The bumper is held on by just two 13mm bolts, the problem is getting to them. First remove the air filter and you will then see a black junction box on the right hand side, remove this and the bracket underneath to get to the bumper bolt. The driver side bolt is behind the small black junction box under a larger black junction box. Remove the small one 2/3 small bolts) to access the other bumper bolt. Its easy to do just takes a bit of time.

Does it smoke? Could possibly be sticking EGR valve. Remove and clean, or blank off and try running without it. If it runs better, this is your problem.

Power steering squeal


You should not turn power steering to extreme locks and hold them there constantly. The squealing is the noise the power steering unit is screaming," You are killing me".

My belt squeal own my 95 tahoe will it miss with the power steerring


belt squeal is the result of a badly adjusted or failing belt. If it also drives the power steering pump then the problem when it squeals will be from the driver holding it on full lock and not backing of a bit

Loud noise when power steering is on full lock Kia Sedona 2004


There may be 2 possible causes for this problem. THe first may be cv koints failing or excessive turn angle of the wheel which would be binding up the cv joint. This can be checked by a wheel aligner testing the maximum turn allowed at the wheels.. The second is that power steering pumps should never be operated at tight full turn. To umnderstand this consider this. Power steering pumps are only under load when you move the steering wheel ans if you turn a bit the pump moves the wheels and then the pressure is let off until you move the wheel again. You have to move the wheel to shut off a valve in the box that allows the pump to build up pressure. When you hold the wheel hard against the stops at full turn you are making the pump work at maximum pressure and if you continue to do this you can expect premature pump failure. Jusat turn until you hit the stops then ease off a fraction. The noise I expect is the pressure relief valve in the pump is releasing rapidly and it probably sounds like a hammer hitting something metalic. Try the alignment and try not holding the turn hard at hard full turn. Haveing the pump pressure checked might also point to a fault

Power steering pump


Whining may be normal.
Pulling fluid from reservoir may be normal.
But I would not expect the fluid to go back to the reservior when you stop.
Is it?
If so, you may have some trapped air or something.
Jack the wheels off the ground, and go lock to lock on the steering, several times, to bleed any air out.

Squealing on start up and a/c activation


The symptoms you describe are due to a slipping drive belt.

Slipping can be due to normal wear and tear and cured by retensioning the belt, or sometimes because something has contaminated the belt such as leaking power steering fluid or engine coolant.

It's quite common for incorrectly tensioned belts to squeal at start up as the belt takes up a shape when the engine's not running, and as it isn't tensioned correctly, takes a few seconds to start flexing properly again. As switching the A/C on also causes the squealing, it sounds like it's the belt that drives the A/C compressor that's slipping - it's not uncommon for there to be up to 3 belts, one for the alternator, one for the power steering pump, and one for the A/C, although it's more common for the alternator and power steering pump to be driven by the same belt.

I'm not familiar with your make and model so cant give any specifics as to how to re-tension your belts, but a tech manual will give you all the details.

When I go to turn the wheel in my 2000 ford ranger I hear loud squealing noises. I checked the power steering fluid and its full. What can it be?The squealing starts as soon as I turn the wheel to the left...


The power steering pump is normally connected or driven by the engine with a V-belt. A loose belt can cause squealing as soon as the power steering come under load (e.g. steering left or right while stopped).

Check the tension on the V-belt directly connected to the power steering pump. This may need replacement.

Hoep this helps.

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.

Loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?


Hi! The pulley could be worn or the belt is not properly adjusted.Causing the belt not to grip the pulley but slide on it,creating a friction.
