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.

When I turn in my 2002 Honda Odyssey, the steering wheel makes a "vibrating/rubbing" noise. What might be causing this? Thanks.


Does this happen at both high and low speeds? At high speeds I'd suggest that you have the wheel bearing checked. If it's at low speeds, check the wheelwell for parts that might be coming in contact with the tire. Drive VERY slowly and carefully have someone look at it.

Where is the power steering pump located?


ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS)
The TSX uses Electric Power Steering (EPS) which regulates steering via a computer-actuated electric motor. With the computer-controlled system, advanced algorithms built into the operating software allow for continuous fine-tuning of the steering assist forces so that minimal force is required at low speeds- such as when parking or maneuvering. Conversely, progressively higher steering effort is generated at higher speeds (such as when driving on the freeway) to deliver a sport-minded driving experience.
The EPS system found in the TSX is an evolution of an earlier EPS system found on the Acura NSX supercar. Its key features and advantages include:
  • The EPS system reduces the steering effort at low speeds, improving agility and ease of effort when parking or maneuvering in tight areas
  • Rigidity of the steering mount is higher, which allows a more precise and "connected" feel during high-speed maneuvers (such as during lane changes or when on winding mountain roads)
  • The EPS steering assist incorporates computer algorithms based on vehicle speed rather than engine speed, allowing TSX engineers the flexibility of tailoring the steering feel to match actual driving conditions- especially high-speed driving. The EPS steering algorithms incorporate steering assist changes for every 0.6 mph.
  • The EPS system is different (and uniquely tuned) for each of the TSX models: 2.4L I-4 sedan, 3.5L V-6 sedan, and the new Sport Wagon.
  • EPS employs a sporty, 13.5:1 steering ratio which further improves performance driving agility
  • In its evolution from the original NSX system, the TSX's EPS system uses a significantly more powerful electric motor teamed with a far more sophisticated microprocessor
  • By eliminating the conventional power steering pump assembly, EPS uses less engine power which improves acceleration and fuel efficiency
it is an electric pump without a pulley or belt or fluid apparently

NEW RACK & PUMP: Steering is still hard at slow speeds. Why?


If the belt is slipping it would do even more so at higher rpms. Plus it would be harder to tell if it is slipping at high speeds due to the fact that just about all rack and pinion systems steer easier at high speeds.
My best guess would be air in either the lines or pump. Driving will not remove the air as it is a sealed system.

2004 dodge ram 1500 power steering problem


this problem is evident in vehicles that have a strut suspension
at the top of the strut there is a plate that is the top plate for the suspension coil spring
above that plate in the rubber bush is a bearing
if that bearing has failed then the plate will not turn and when you turn the steering wheel the power steering is in effect winding up that coil spring
that makes low speed turning very heavy on the power steering system especially at low rpms
have the front suspension checked for that bearing failure ( both sides ) by an accredited suspension specialist shop
standing stationary and turning the wheel you may even hear a creaking or groaning noise as the spring is flexing on the strut
if you do not have a strut suspension , take it to a power steering specialist shop for a proper diagnosis

Why is the steering hard?


You need to give more specifics. Some systems have varible rate steering which will make the steering tighter at high speeds and lighter at slower speeds.
Or just check your power steering fluid level. If the pump is making a noise or the belt came off that could also be it.

03 hyundai tiburon steering wheel locked up at high speed on off ramp. what would cause this?


Mechanical problem in the steering lock mechanism. High speed and off-ramp have nothing to do with it.

99 suburban with erratic steering at high speeds. Front end components tight and new. Power steering position sensor was just tested to be ok by dealer. Any other suggestions? Also could sensor still be...


Have an alignment done and request that a couple of degrees positive caster be added into adjustment (past specifications) Generally this will either cure or lessen wandering at high speed. Doing this will not harm performance in any way.
