1998 volkswagen beetle leaking power steering fluid


Go to autozone or similar and get a leak detection kit. Make sure you get the one for oil type. The kit contains a uv dye that u add to the power steering fluid, a flashlight that detects the dye, a special pair of glasses that allows you to see the dye. Refill power steering fluid add dye when fluid leaks out put on glasses and shine flashlight on engine starting at power steering tank and work way down all lines and fittings until you see the glow from dye. The foam is caused by air in the system

Where do i put power steering fluid in my 2001 tiburon


The power steering fluid reservoir is on the passenger side of the engine compartment. The cap should say power steering fluid. If its shrieking it's not low on fluid. The belt is loose. It will make more of a moan when the fluid is low. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

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

Power steering moaning sound during turning left or right


This is most probably due to low powerstering fluid in the system, you can simply top it up and have the steering rack pipes and pump checked for leaks.

Noise fron tire nissan altima


Are you check the power steering fluid? If it's a moaning sound, when you're turning the wheel, you're either low on power steering fluid, your pump is getting weak or (most likely) your rack and pinion steering pump is getting weak.

Keep us updated.

When I turn right or left, a moaning sound emanates from under the hood of my 1989 Mercury Marquis. Is my power steering pump failing? Where do I check the power steering fluid level?


The sound should indicate low fluid. Your power steering fluid should be red...may look black depending on how old. Your manual will tell you where to fill.

I have a 2001 toyota celica. i put a new power steering pump on it because the old one was moaning and of course the car was difficult to turn. but.. the new is doing the same thing and blowing the fliud...


Sound like the steering rack is bad.The moaning could be the pump working to hard which could cause the fluid to overheat and over flow.Does it over flow when you first start it and it is cold

My power steering fluid is dark brown


Place a few drops of fluid on a paper towel. if it spread easily it is good. If it does not spread. change the fluid. The color does indicate a need to change the fluid.

Draining of the rack and power steering


the best way is with a automotive suction gun (about $6), drain the reservoir and then refill until the fluid is clear, but from past years of many such noise concerns coming through the shop u will end up replacing the power steering pump.
