Something with the power steering system maybe the pump.

What is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor


Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

Steering makes noise ...Growling when turning. We just had a hose replaced and it started after that. I checked steering fluid and it is full, smells like Sh__ and looks dark brown to black. Any Ideas? ...


It sounds as though your fluid is burnt
I would like to tell you,if you flushed it with new fluid,you would be good to go,but burnt fluid is the result of some kind of damage, that has to be corrected.
The pump my have gone bad,but what concerns me, is that the black fluid,will most certainly take out the steering rack.
When the fluid is burnt,you lost the ability to remove heat. ( I hope you do your trans fluid every 30,000 miles,I used to own a trans repair shop,as well as P/S Fluid)
The growling ,is either a bad pump,a pump under pressure,because the rack is shot and stiff,or now both.
Tip--Install a magnetic inline power steering filter,on the return line, after cooler and before pump,after you replace parts and absolutely have to flush out the burnt fluid and debris you now got.

My power steering pump makes a growling noise even when the car is idle. The noise is louder when I turn the steering wheel. The power steering fluid has gotten low a couple of times and gets foamy.

Growling noise when turning


I think it is the rear differential fluid that needs to be changed. I had the same problem.

Easy steering to left, difficult steering to right


he sounds right on that one..sounds like bad seal in the steering box or bad valve.--as far as replacing the power steering pump---i wouldnt do that unless its growling right now. the lines will be disconnected from the steering box, now is a great time to flush the power steering pump. but yes, i think he is on the right track with the steering box being bad
