Question about 2003 Saturn VUE
My 2003 Saturn Vue, 6-cylinder, all-wheel 4-wheel drive, 115,000 miles has been making a creeking kind of noise when the steering wheel is pulled all the way in either direction. It was much louder when there was snow built-up and I though it was due to snow pack hindering the steering mechanism. However, that's not longer an issue and the sound continues, although at a much lower noise level.
My ex thinks it's just old car noise, but I'm still concerned about losing steering at some point because a cable breaks--the creeking is what I would imagine a cable being stretched would sound like.
I have seen a lot of cars make noise when you turn the wheel all the way one way or the other and usually it is either the upper or lower ball joint. it will be louder when its really cold. i would jack the car up and see if there is any play in the ball joints.
