Not the pulley, but the pump might be locked up.
Or the alternator or one of the other accessories.

SOURCE: replaced power steering pump it still makes

Additionally if this noise is heard only with the vehicle in motion you should check your wheelbearings as worn wheelbearings can give off a grinding noise when making a turn. In this case the noise you are hearing may not be related to the actual steering components themselves.

Engine making loud noise when running I removed the serpentine belt and stop?


Turn all the pulleys by hand. Chances are you will be able to tell if there are bad bearings in cone of the following: Power steering pump, alternator, idler pulley, A/C compressor. The one that is failing will probably feel rough when you turn it or have a lot of play in it.

Loud whining noise


A loud whining noise is indicative of either a faulty, or loose engine belt, a faulty bearing on one of the engines pulleys, or the power steering pump being low on fluid, or a faulty power steering pulley bearing.

How do i change my power steering fluid


Hi B, There are basically two places that can make a noise from the power steering; one is a loose belt which will produce a loud screeching sound which will become more intense when the steering wheel is turned. That one means that the belt has stretched and should be replaced or re-tightened. The second type of noise will be from the pump and will mean a replacement or at the very least a repair job (if the repair kit is available). Replacing the fluid is not a great problem. Locate the reservoir and the low pressure pipe which returns the fluid into it It will came from the steering assembly. (a rubber pipe attached with hose clips. The high pressure feed pipe will connect to the steering pump).Get a large container, which must be at least four times the capacity of the replacement fluid, You will probably need in the region of seven to ten pints, maybe more.. Join an extension hose to the return pipe and run that into the catchment container. Be prepared with the replacement fluid and ask a friend to start the engine. As the engine starts, begin filling and keep filling. The used ATF will run into the catchment container and when it becomes clean cut the engine. Reconnect the hose to the reservoir and check that there are no leakages. Regards John

The belts continue to make a loud screeching noises when i drive over 55. Sometimes when the car is idling the belts make noise. Could it be the tension pulley.


it could be the tensioner, water pump, alternator, A/C compressor, power steering, or even a really bad serpentine belt. The only way to be sure is to remove the s-belt and spin-check the pulleys and listen for squeaks or grinding bearings.

Engine noise


If it gets worse when turning the wheel at a stop, then it's the power steering pump. Could be the power steering fluid also. Check your belts for wear or damage. The idle pulley will make a constant noise, sometimes whining sometime screeching. To check idler pulley it is best to remove belts.
