Hyundai sonata power steering

While driving my 2003 Sonata yesterday, it made a low whining noise briefly. The next time I tried to turn, I realized my power steering was out. When I checked under the hood, I could smell something had gotten hot, but could not see any loose belts. Additionally, when the engine is idling, I can hear a rattling noise coming from the engine. Does this just sound like a hose problem?

It could be a leaking hose, and the PS fluid is dropping on the hot exhaust. Check the fluid level in the power steering reservoir. If low or dry, look for a leak.
I don't know about the rattling-better have someone look at it.

SOURCE: Noise Under Hood

I would be most suspicious of the alternator pulley. These are known to have issues and will at some point just come off. You may want to check out this thread on www.tdiclub.com: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=139424

Hope that helps.

BTW you can drive the car without that belt until the battery dies, you just won't have power steering or AC.

SOURCE: My hyundai is making a rattling noise

that sounds like what we call "spark knock" that occurs when u accellerate quickly, but yes it will go away in a few seconds when the computer detects this condition. with the economy the way it is it will be more expensive, but try running higher octane gasoline in it, should cure this condition. hope that helped you!!

SOURCE: clicking noise when turning right

check your cv axles in the front end. they are basically your drive axles. the popping while turning is usually the outer boots on the axle shafts have torn and the grease inside the boots has ran out causing the shaft to be dry and click or pop when steering. usually you can replace the boot thats torn but it must be done within a few days of it tearing otherwise you will need to replace the axle shafts.

How to bypass the ac pulley on a 2003 hyundai sonata


You can bypass the ac compressor by using a 82" belt. Feed the belt from the back of the engine at the water pump. Disconnect the power steering line at pump. It's a lot easier if you use some type of hook to hold/maneuver the belt. (I used a bent rebar) Follow this routing diagram I created. Bam! No more ac problems!

In my Sonata I went out to start it and it just made clicking noises. What does that mean?


This sounds like your starter or starter relay went. Check fuses to make sure they are all good.
