SOURCE: steering system

This is caused by the power steering pump, the only way to correct it is to flush the power steering system and replace the pump

SOURCE: Left Turn Signal Rapidly Blinks

Sounds to me like a bad ground. When the current can't complete through a ground circit it feeds back through the elements ancd can cause all sorts of wierd syptoms.

The fast blink itself can be casued by a burnt out bulb I would check that first.

Then I would check the trailter harness if there is one and unpluch any harness that may be plugged into it. also check each bulb to see if it is seated well. you may be able to see if there is corrorsionaround the bulb terminals at this time is so yo may need to replace the light assembly. Also you could look for any spot where maybe someone in the past tried to tie into the harness to hook up additional lights etc. this may allo moisture in and corroded to the point the wire is "open"

SOURCE: very squeaky belt or pully, use to stop when gas

1999 probably has a serpantine belt (multi grooved). I would guess that you may have a squeaky belt or more likley a bad bearing in on of the idler pulleys. Remove the belt and spin the idlers by hand. If one feels rough or makes noise replace it.

Could be steering shaft on bottom of column that connects column to gearbox. Rag joint or u-joints on shaft are dry or seized. Try spraying rubber rag joint & u-joints on steering shaft with a good penetrating oil like PB Blaster. Work steering wheel all the way to left,spray, then turn all the way to right & spray some more.

Sounds like a the belt may be too tight. Are you sure its the alternator? There is also an idler puller that is near the alternator that I have experienced squeeching. If so try spraying a penetrating/lubricating oil (WD40) etc. in the area where the gear shaft enters the housing. Do this with the engine OFF to avoid injury and getting oil slung in your face! This has worked for me on several occasions. Good luck and a reply would be appreciated! Thanks.

Power steering not working, check power steering fluid and it is full


If you mean it is very hard to turn steering wheel & it wont or barely returns after steering to left or right. Look at bottom of steering column shaft under the hood. It is very common for steering shaft u-joints to become dried & seized up. Spray up both u-joints & rubber rag joint with a good penetrating oil like " PB Blaster" it is magnetic & will lubricate seized u-joints. Be sure to turn all the way left & spray & all the way right & spray. Let sit for a bit then turn wheel all the way left & all the way right. If it gets better then be sure to lubricate every so often. If it doesn't get better you will need to change the steering shaft.

I have a 99 Hyundai Elantra and almost every time I turn the car on, it makes this awful squealing noise. The noise sounds to be coming from somewhere in the engine and is really bad when I have my wheel...


hi, the first thing i would have said the fault was was going to be a fan belt/ alternater belt if this is to loose or to tight then this can give you the noise you are hearing, one way of finding out if its a belt making the noise is to go out and get a spray like wd40 and then spray this on the belt then if the noise goes away you then know that its that belt causing you the problem.

If the belts have not been replaced recently then this could be the cause of your problem, spray the belt with a spray or even soapy water then give you car a try if your using soapy water make sure you get the whole belt wet then try the car if the noise is then gone you know the belt is at fault.

If you have power steering then low power steering fluid can cause the power steering pump to squeek so check the level and fill it up to the highest mark then start the car and turn the wheel fully left then fully right then back to the middle then check the level again.
Low steering fluid can cause the noise you hear.

If after doing this its not the belt making the noise and neither the power steering pump then the only thing left that could cause the noise you are having is a dry bearing on one of the pulleys now this could be the alternater pulley or power steering pulley basically any pulley that the belt is running on could be causing you the noise you hear.
To stop the noise you need to buy a spray oil or spray lube then give these pulleys a good spray all around where the bearing is in the middle if the bearing gets to dry it can sieze and cause you loads of problems so go and buy a spray lube and give all of the pulleys a good spray at the front and the back try and get it in towards where the bearing is in the middle this should then stop the noise that you are hearing.

you can spray wd40 on the pulleys but remember this isnt a oil or lube it will just stop the noise for a couple of minutes so you could tell witch pulley is causing you the problem your better of buying a proper spray lube and give all the pulleys a spray where the bearing is in the middle this should then solve any noises you hear.

Make sure you check the engine oil level to rule out the noise coming from the inner workings of the engine ok


Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Key won't turn


right key? just kidding I am sure you checked. sounds like the tumblers are stiff or jammed, try squirting plenty of WD40 in there and jiggle the key in and out, ensure the steering wheel is not putting extra tension on the lock by pulling against any tension with it. Good luck

Forcing gears in !!!?????


The gear lube may be dry or too low to actually lubricate the gears which are probably full of gum residue.
Open the tranny access plate and spray the gears with a penetrating oil (WD40 / Liquid Wrench), but don't get carried away. Once the geras shift ok, wipe off light oil and top off with the proper gear lube.

your key is probably worn down and needs replaced, but you can try spraying a penetrating oil (WD40 or PB Blaster) into the lock cylinder this sometimes works
