Check the tire pressure on all four wheels to make sure they are correctly inflated.

SOURCE: steering wheel wobbles while driving

If it seems to happen more when rounding a curve than on the straight, it may be your CV joint. I'm not sure but I think you can replace the half shaft that connects the wheel to the engine. Otherwise, you may have to find a press to press out the old one. It's kinda like a U-joint on rear wheel drive cars. Or it could be the tire out of balance, bad tire, bad stabalizer bar. Gonna have to jack it up and get under it and start shaking stuff to find out what's loose. GOod luck and have fun....

SOURCE: power steering makes a noise when turning left

Might have low fluid, check that first, next if fluid is not a problem, its prolly the unit itself that needs replacing, if you are loosing fluid, check to see if its the lines or the housing. Lines are easy to replace and cheap

When I turn in my 2002 Honda Odyssey, the steering wheel makes a "vibrating/rubbing" noise. What might be causing this? Thanks.


Does this happen at both high and low speeds? At high speeds I'd suggest that you have the wheel bearing checked. If it's at low speeds, check the wheelwell for parts that might be coming in contact with the tire. Drive VERY slowly and carefully have someone look at it.

What is cause of power steering noise from ford galaxy


Check your fluid level first. If the fluid is low it will cause the power steering pump to make noise. Moore noticeable when in parking lots and driving in the city where you are making a lot of turns. Look for leaks. If you fill the power steering resivor to the proper level and the fluid leaks and you can not see the leak it may be your steering rack. The fluid leaks into the boots and sometimes goes un -detected. You can poke a small hole in the bottom of the boots and see if fluid leaks out. If so the steering rack is leaking and should be replaced

Does a 2002 taurus have wheel barrings


Possibilities are:
  1. Bad wheel bearing
  2. Bad tie rod
  3. Bad ball joint
  4. Bad strut
  5. Loose lug nuts
Most cases it's a wheel bearing but since you're getting a loud noise too, it could very well be a bad ball joint or tie rod end.

I just purchased a 2007 tundra and while driving at low speeds I notice a "wump wump wump" noise. I thought it might be due to the old tires on the truck or perhaps something to do with the...


Without looking at the vehicle and driving it myself, I would say your guess is a pretty good one. Usually that can be caused by chopped or dry tires. There could be other causes too like drive shaft ujoints, cv shaft going bad(if yours is 4x4), wheel bearings too.

I get a grinding noise and slight vibrations that I can feel under my feet. This usually happens at low speeds, but has become more noticeable now at c. 30 mph.


You need wheel bearings.. One for sure maybe 2. Do you feel it in the steering wheel or floor? The floor usually means rear and the steering wheel usually means front. Hope this helps. It should change pitch when you drive left to right at a steady speed. :-) Cobra
