    What kind of funny sound? clicking, squeaking, grinding? Could be anything. Is there any vibration with it?

SOURCE: vibration in steering column

if your vibration comes and goes with different speeds, most likely problem is balance in tires/wheels. a bent wheel often vibrates more with higher speeds. if the vibration is stong in the steering wheel, the problem is normally in the front end, if you feel in more in the seat or body of the car then look to the rear end.

When I drive at high speed there is a funny sound from steering sound like garrrrr and the steering vibrate


When I drive at high speeds I hear a funny siren sound with blue lights flashing :) Seriously though, the power steering fluid may be aerated or low and moaning which can make the steering wheel feel odd, as in vibrating . See what your fluid looks like and the level of it.

Vibration coming from front axle when coming to a stop it gets worse, brakes are good , maybe cv joint?


if you feel the pulsation in brake pedal when stopping. its a warped brake rotor thats causing it. for bad cv joint symtoms--- Unusual noises when making turns. As you are driving on the road and you make a turn at the corner, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from under the car then this is one of the symptoms of a bad CV joint. These noises will sound like something is clicking beneath the car every time you turn the steering wheel. Evidence of a damaged boot. Steering wheel feels heavier. The steering wheel will start to feel tighter and heavier and you can hardly make simple turns to the left or right. In severe cases you might even feel heavy vibrations like you are driving down a rocky road.

Key won't release from cylinder


This is cause from the automatic steering lock mechanism. Let me give you a little secret that 99% of the time fixes this.

Let me explain. The design is suppose to work like this. You get out into your car, put the key in and slightly turn the wheel to the left and it unlock the steering mechanize. BUT sometimes it gets jammed, like in your case. There are two ways to get this unlocked or jammed to get your key out. Number one is, while key is in of course, really try hard to move your steering wheel back and forth to unlock this jam in steering wheel lock mechanize. On small cars this normally works. But here is my big secret that will help you, it sounds funny but works 99% of the time.

What you do, is you need to get the weight of the front wheels, as that is what needs to be turned and eases the tension off the wheels, to turn wheel a inch of so, until the mechanism release to pull key out. So, This sounds funny, but works. Jack up the front of your Blazer, and after front end is jacked up, so wheels are off ground, then try and turn wheel hard and pull key out. I assure you, sounds funny but works. If not, then you have a broken key ignition, but I would not worry about that, just follow my instructions on the jack up method. Please if this helps you, maybe you can rate my help and a positive testimony would be nice for this free advice and solution. Thanks Mike

Lexus LS400 with 80000 miles. Bpught is used and ever since ther steering wheel feels very loose is this the norm maybe im used to driving a van in which the wheel is much tighter? thanx for your help


Hi,
Both your Van and your Lexus have power assist steering. So the "feel"
will be somewhat different. How quickly and easily the "Assist" helps varies. The Lexus is an Luxury car.It is designed to make steering easier.
Less effort needed by you turning the wheel to turn the car. So you were right in your diagnosis. The Van will have a heavier feel.
Enjoy the ride.

Tight steering


hi from the uk from the symptoms you clearly describe ? you aare correct in your assumption that fault is'nt p/steer may i suggest you check the universal joint on the lower end of the steering column it is accessable from under the bonnet or best from underneath car this joint has no lubrication facility ie grease nipple and being hidden away is often forgotten it is a simple enough job to change it and part is not that expensive it is a matter of removing the two nuts+bolts on each end and use wd40 b4 you start it helps loosen bolts/joint leave wheels in ahead position but keep steering lock off so you can manuver the joint off it is usually splined or has a flat mating on bothe steering rack and column shafts ONCE THIS JOUNT SEIZES DO NOT TRY FREEING IT TO REFIT AS IT IS NOT SAFE fit replacement only then i suggest you put a dollop of greas around joint to prevent seizure in future? hope this helps best wishes from uk

Tight steering


Some power steering systems have a high effort function, a sensor controls output pressure(to the wheels) proportionate to input pressure (steering wheel) You need the Dealer for this one. Safety is a major concern, loss of control hazard is present

A few days ago my power steering started to get tighter and there is a feeling of something loose is left front. but after initial start no tightness or feeling or something loose just every once in awhile...


Normally when you get tightening at the steering wheel that means that the rack and pinion is failing. A rack and pinion can cause tightening then before you realize it your steering is back to normal. I would have it checked. Good Luck

87 chevy nova loose steering


Sound like it needs some steering parts, you need to jack it up and check the state of the steering components, if you have that much play in the steering wheel you could be flirting with disaster if you don't deal with it soon. If you are unsure of what to check , get it into the shop.
otherwise you need to check the steering box, tie rod ends, idler and pitman arms, ball joints etc.

Hope this is of some help.
