No filter, sounds like the steering rack is worn out and need to be rebuilt.

Power sterring noise


Check your power steering fluid level. If low will cause unit to whine when turning left or right. If fluid level has gone very low you will need to bleed system. With car jacked up start engine and turn your steering wheel all the way left then right a few times. Good Luck Friend.

Noise sterring wheel


Check the level of your power steering fluid. If that's correct, then the power steering unit has some problems, causing the noise, usually when you turn the wheels. You may have to replace it, if the noise bothers you too much or a mechanic tells you that it can be a danger to drive with it like that.

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

I have a 1993 BMW 318i. It makes a loud grinding/rasping noise, which I can feel in the steering wheel, when I turn to the right of left. Although the car has power steering it is also very unresponsive/...


Replace power steering rack and power steering pump. But first check fluid level. No fluid in reservoir can mimick same problem. Take off air box to adequately see level.

It has power steering. Why does it steer so hard?


Do you hear noises while turning the wheel at low speeds or stationary? If you hear a whining noise check the power steering fluid level. A low fluid level would make a whining noise as well as cause stiff steering. If you hear a squealing noise check the power steering belt tension. A slipping belt would cause stiff steering also. If you hear no abnormal noises check to make sure the power steering belt is there. If all of the above check out ok you may have a bad power steering pump, steering gear or a blockage in a pressure line.

2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise


It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.

1984 Toyota PU 4WD 22R Engine Makes Squealing noise at PS pump


you have to bleed the power steering system. you have someone turn the wheels to the left while you watch the power steering fluid level adding as needed. than repeat turning the wheels to the right. and repeat until the noise seems to get quieter and you don't have to ad any more fluid.


hope this helped
please rate well
