It is quite possible that the resevor is out of fluid. If this is so, it is very bad for your power steering pump. If it still makes noise after you refill the steering fluid, then you will have to rebuild or replace the power steering pump.

Either your power steering fluid level is low, your power steering fluid needs to be replaced, or your power steering pump is failing.

Where do i put power steering fluid in my 2001 tiburon


The power steering fluid reservoir is on the passenger side of the engine compartment. The cap should say power steering fluid. If its shrieking it's not low on fluid. The belt is loose. It will make more of a moan when the fluid is low. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Steering wheel is hard to turn...is that power steering fluid? Is there a specific kind for 2001 Zx2?


Does your car make a groaning noise when you turn the wheel? It could be a few different things. The first thing you want to do is check your power steering fluid. If it's low, top it off and see if that helped. It just takes a standard power steering fluid, nothing specific.

If the power steering fluid was low and that fixed the problem, you need to ask yourself the question - Why was the fluid low? There's probably a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.

If the power steering fluid wasn't low, then there's a couple other things it could be. If the car makes a groaning noise when you turn the wheel, chances are that you have a bad power steering pump. If there's no noise and you just don't have any power steering at all then it could be a bad pump or a bad power steering rack.

Hopefully this helps you figure it out. Good Luck!

The power steering warning light is coming on and turning off at random and fluttering between the red and amber settings, sometimes stopping on one color or the other for several minuets. it may turn on...


This problem is related to the Electro mechanical power Steering Assistent. They have no steering fluid pump, instead, they have electric motors to assist. You need to bring it to the dear so they can scan the problem. I own a 07 jetta, and same thing happen till the dealer fund a bad angle sensor. good luck

When I turn steering i get a graon from the power steering reservoir


Hi. Check the Power Steering fluid level. Usually you will be hearing a groan if the fluid level is low. If fluid is normal then you still getting the groan, i advised you to check the power steering mechanism. It could be the bearing inside that is having the problem.

Car groans when turning corners


You need to describe the problem better. Does it groan only when moving and turning, or will it make the same noise just sitting there turning the steering wheel. If it only makes noise when moving, that rules out a ps problem, the ps doesnt know if you are moving or not. Does it make different noise if you are going to the right or left, same noise, different? I dont know about the reservoir, some of them have filters, but I dont know if Buick does or not. If it was, it would cause a whine, not a groan.

My 2000 Mazda Protege DX has a tight steering. Can


Try turning the wheel when standing still with the engine running.
If it is tight check the obviouse, has the power steering belt come off. If not check if there is fluid in the steering pump resavour. If the belt is on and you have fluid you may have a bad pump.
I hope this helps
