Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS

1 Answer

Why does Power steering noise(severe) occur when engine gets hot?

I have repaired a leaking PS hose this helped some but noise seemed to increase so a rebuilt PS pump was put in car(twice) first one defective. The car seems to run fine until the engine gets hot or have been driving car for long periods of time and then the noise returns but very loudly and at the most minimal of turns.

Power steering fluid leaking. change hose? change pump? Re clamp?


If the hose itself is leaking (not the connection/end) , replace the hose. If the hose is more than 5 years old, I'd probably just replace it. If it's the low pressure hose (return) and it's leaking at the junction, you can probably replace the clamp. If it's the high pressure hose (with the machine-formed hose ends) then replace the hose - a clamp is unlikely to withstand the pressure and you don't want to take the chance of it blowing off when you're turning.

What could be causing the growling noise coming from the belt driven accessories when the car is idling and not moving?


See my prior answer about using hose to listen to locate exact point of noise. This works better than you can imagine.

It could be a leaking hose, and the PS fluid is dropping on the hot exhaust. Check the fluid level in the power steering reservoir. If low or dry, look for a leak.
I don't know about the rattling-better have someone look at it.

1996 honda accord after changing the power steering belt and run the eng, the power steering reservor is over flowing and lots of bubbes. and loud noise every time you turn to lt and rt .the lines was...


It sounds as if you have a volume of air in your power steering system. This is causing the bubbling and also some of the noise you might be generating when you turn the wheels hard right or hard left. This air might have been introduced if your old belt was slipping so much that the pump was essentially not operating and fluid wasn't regularly circulating throughout the system. Another, more expensive possibility is that your old belt was slipping because the power steering pump itself was starting to fail, and the new, grippier belt is turning the damaged pump and showing you its lack of functionality.
The first and easiest thing to do would be to bleed the system. Open the hood and take the cover of the power steering fluid reservoir. With the engine off but the steering wheel unlocked, slowly turn the steering wheel all the way to one side and then to the other. Repeat this several times while watching the power steering reservoir. Is the fluid bubbling? If so, good, you're purging air out of your system. In general, this is easier with the front wheels off the ground, but that is not absolutely necessary (if you have strong arms).
Once you have purged the system, put the cap back on the power steering reservoir, topping it off if the fluid level has dropped to the fill mark. Now, restart your car and observe the power steering pump. Does it seem to be operating quietly and smoothly? If you touch the pump 1-2 minutes after the engine has been running, is it hot to the touch? It will probably be warm, but _hot_ is an indication that something is overheating inside the pump. Is the power steering fluid very dark colored or does it smell burned? This is also a sign that the fluid should be changed ASAP and that some internal damage may have occurred. Burned fluid isn't necessarily an indication that your power steering pump is bad. However, if after changing your PS fluid the new fluid quickly becomes dark and starts smelling burned, then it's probably time to start saving money for a new or rebuilt power steering pump.

The power steering resoivoir drains out after 1-2 hours


Hi:

Check to see if you have a Power Steering hose leak ,Open Hood and Have someone inside turing Steering wheel back and Forth slow.While you have a Light and Locate your Leak.

Power Steering System is a Sealed System, Sounds like you have a Hole in 1-of your Power Steering Fluid Lines(Pressure) More that likely. or Return line.

If its leaking at the Pump where your hoses go in it might just be a Rubber Seal. But the most common problem is a Hose is Busted Open.

Buzzing noise and it increases when turning


Sounds like your power steering fluid is low, you may have a power steering leak, look for fluid draining out of your vehicle, wet spots on the ground etc. The system can leak from the hoses between the pump and the steering rack, from the steering rack itself, from the pump itself. Check all of these items to determine which is leaking, you will have to fill the power steering fluid to find the leak. If this sounds like way too much, then take it to your favorite repair shop and have them take a look. Hope this helps, let me know.

Loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently


Dealer, but did you check the Power steering fluid level??or any leaks. There are two hose that connect to the gear box from the power steering pump. if the pump is low on fluid you lose your power steering, if the hose has a leak or it blew and lost the power steering fluid then you lost your power steering again. 
Check the fluid level to the power steering pump and any leaks or broken hose to the gear box.
Keep me posted, be glad to help and good luck.
