Two things to check. If your car has a harmonic pulley on the crank shaft check that it is not slipping on the rubber insert and squealing. Second point is when there is no need for power steering ie straight ahead or idling there is no load on the pump so it will feel ok but as soon as you move the position of the steering wheel the valves close off and the pump comes under load. If the drive belt only drives the power pump and it broke then I would suspect a problem in the pump. Check that the belt is the correct size for the pulley groove as if it is too small the belt will run on the bottom of the pulley and slip, and squeal.

I need to know why you changed the power steering pump and the belt. It sounds like you had a problem and replaced the wrong component. You chould change whatever component is locked up behind the pulley and replace the belt. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: power steering noise

The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

SOURCE: tension pully is loose making the belt rattle

It sounds like you have a broken serpentine belt tensioner. The tensioner should always be tight, it is spring loaded and you would have had to release the tension on it to have put the new belt on.Depending on what engine that is in yours, this could be an easy fix or a hard fix. The tensioner on a 2.2L is made into a large plate bracket that is attached to the front on the engine and several other items have to come off to replace it.The tensioner on the 3.1L v6 is smaller and has one bolt that holds it on.Either one is available at the local auto parts store.

Hope this helps

MY 91" TOWN CAR SIGNATURE HAS BEEN MAKING A LOUD


hi this sounds like to me you might have a loose baffel in the box, the reason why the sound dissapates when you get to a certain speed is because the baffel is pushed up or down due to the pressure when you slow down the pressure then releases the baffel and it starts rattling again, you might also have a broken clamp on your exhaust or even a missing rubber bush check these out first...good luck

Loud rattle noise started on cold start up but goes away.Now makes noise on/off throttle all the time.Sounds like cat internals or heat shield,inlaws have same car,same noise


Sounds like the Cat could be bad. Get under the vehicle and hit the cat with your hand. If it rattles then you know what your problem is, if it doesnt rattle then start check the belts and tensioners

Motor started tapping loudly as if there was no oil, oil level was fine, changed oil sound quieted after 20 minutes, sound came back a couple of days later, went away the last couple of days on short...


hi this could be due to your hydraulic tappets, these will start to rattle if the oil has been low at some stage and the oil was to thin this normally sounds worse in the mornings on first start and gets quieter as the day goes on or disappears altogether, what you could do, is use an engine flush, put it in the engine and run it for a period of time, then empty the oil and refill with a thicker grade oil and see how that goes..hope this helps

Engine rattle when cold, sounds a bit like lifter rattle. Goes away after warms up.


Start with fresh oil change and filter. Make sure you are using the correct manufacture recommended oil wt. and rating. The counter person at the part show should know what to give you.

Rattling noise during start up. I turn the key and there is a loud rattle noise when the car first fires up. When the car fires up it sounds like I have my foot on the accelerator as it revs up at first...


check your starter and see if it is loose, this will cause it (starter) to use more amperage to start which leaves less amperage for the rest of the electrical system (maybe the long start problem too), hope this helps, let me know
