I have a 5series bmw. the power steering on the car is fooked. for the last 3 or so days there has been a little whinning noise as i drive and when i turn corners it seems to worsen. it stopped working for...


If the fluid was completely empty, you may still have air in the system. Whining is not good. It means low fluid and could burn out the power steering pump in short order. Turn off the car, Add fluid (DON'T OVER FILL), start the car, turn the wheel a LITTLE bit right and left a couple times to get the air out. Shut off the car, recheck fluid, add and repeat until full. If you still have the whining and no Power Steering, you are FOOKED...

Power steering problem


If the fluid is not contaminated and there is no contamination in it it may require replacing the pump. It is possible to flush the pump though it can be a little messy.

06 Wrangler...steering pump noise..whines when turned to lock...told by chrysler that all wranglers do it...bs..is it a known item that all wranglers make noise like the steering pump is out of fluid????


No pump should be noisy, though if only noisy when wheels are turned all the way to either side, that is normal. Once turned to the point where the pump first begins to make noise you really don't have any more wheel movement and turning the steering wheel further does very little except cause the noise. I've found that on many Jeeps the steering stop bolts on the lower control arms are set too far in and can be turned back a bit. That may help somewhat.

My power steering pump is making a "whining" noise. Why?


First check and make sure it is not low of fluid. If it is top it off with the correct fluid. If you let it get low it may have air in the system. After topping the reservoir off start the engine and turn the steering wheel fully to the left and right 5 times. This will remove any trapped air. If the whining is still there, you need a new power steering pump as it is defective.

Whining or grinding noise/screech when we turn the wheel


Dear Screech And Whine......What you have described is definitely a power steering concern. And yes the fluid is low.....thanks for the accurate problem description!! You are correct on the filling the fluid part also......but keep in mind that if your power steering fluid is lo that you might very well also have a ps leak too.You can do a visual check and trace all of your ps lines to make sure that no fluid is escaping anywhere.....You ae more tha welcome to get back to me if you have any further questions...HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Making noise when turning steering wheel but no leakage


The power steering pump that is used in your car is notorious for noise issues, it is a loud whine which gets louder as you turn the steering wheel right or left, flush the system fluid and replace the pump.

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem...


grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).
