When i start the car, making loud squeaking sounds

Opened the hood and saw smoke coming from the belts. Also hard to steer. Trans fluid looked okay. Is there a oil i can put on the belts to stop friction?

Do not add oil to belts. remove belt and spin all pulleys (except crankshaft pulley) any pulley does not turn freely (except crankshaft pulley) is where you will find your problem

Sounds like you need to replace what is locked up. Take the belt off and turn all the pulleys. One is not turning.

Why has steering started squeaking loudly when parking or low speed turning?


I would say it have to be bad joints or breaks.

Steering is all electronics these days so it can only be loosen.

When i turn on my car i hear squeaking sound


Belts? Mice? Hallucination? ALL DEPENDS ON WHERE THE "SQUEAKING" IS COMING FROM.

Open the hood. If the squeaking is coming from the area of the serpentine belt, it is probably time to replace your belt. Also, check all fluid levels.
If the squeaking is coming from a particular pulley (such as the air conditioning compressor or the power steering hydraulic pump), there may be a problem with whatever the pulley is attached to.
If the squeaking appears to be coming from outside of the car, you are scaring the mice or hallucinating.

2002 Oldsmobile Alero makes loud noises when turning


more than likely it is just low on power steering fluid. system might have air in it now. so after fill power steering unit to proper level driver the car and check fluid level again. and add more if needed . I believe car should have motor running for when checking fluid, same as transmission.

Squeaks loud when turning the wheel mostly to the right. I have checked the power steering fluid, it is at the correct level. Its the kind of squeaking as if it were the tires inside an automotive shop,...


This sounds like the power steering belt is slipping, this will cause a loud squeal, check all the belts and make sure they are good and tight, mostlikly its the power steering belt as the noise only happens when the wheel is turned.

Loud squeaking when I turn the wheel left or right. It started all of a sudden. Very loud.


i would have the drive (serpentine) belt inspected and make sure they look at the tensioner and the fluid level on the power steering pump. if they have to add the pump, you have a leak and it should be tended to. you can look under the hood and check the power steering fluid level yourself and make sure not to over fill or you will create a mess (no danger, just messy).

Steering hard /loosing pwer at 40-55mph


Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.
