I have a 87 jimmy 350 that has a stalling problem when I turn or come to a stop. I raised the idle and it helped but now it's running high. Had it looked at by a shop and he said the power steering pump is...

If the power steering is fine, no squealing/whining when turning, I would check the timing. It may be at a spot that sounds good , but under a load it's in the wrong powerband/time.

If you replaced the belt,tensioner and pulley then you have "glazed" a pulley. There are 2 very easy fixes to try. The first one is to hold a bar of soap on the under (grooved) side of the pulley while the vehicle is idling. Obviously extreme care is required while doing this. If that doesn't get rid of the squealing, spray carburetor or brake cleaner on the under side of the belt while it's idling. That should do it.

I want to know if there is a problem with my 2006 audi a4 engine

check belt condition and tension first . Check for idler puller bearing failure. Check for water pump bearing failure and power steering problems. Check that the alternator is operational and not producing a frequency squeal for armature/ regulator failure.

Why is my engine knocking when i come to a complete stop. when i turn the corner i hear squealing.

Low oil pressure will cause engine knocking at idle. Pressure climbs and properly lubes engine at higher RPM> Check your oil level.

Squealing may be caused by a loose/worn belt on the power steering system.

I have gone to different mechanics who changed the belt multiple times, the idle pulley and the tensioner. Also they have changed the alternator, all within a months period with the same result. please...

Have any of them checked the power steering pump, if the relief valve is jammed open it will cause the loud squealing sound also. Get them to check this.
Let me know if you need more information

When turning wheel a squealing noise comes from the steering coloum.........seems like it might be worse going into a corner hard........may sound like something turning in the coloum itself...............

The squealing noise when turning the steering wheel happens in most cases when the power steering fluind is low. Check to see if there is power steering fluid in the reevoir. If not add fluid to the proper level and the squealing should stop. Good luck

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...

excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

the pulley tentioner on the power steering belt, i ve done lots of them, they are self tentioning and over time can cause to much tention on the belt, if this the case when you have the steering at full lock it should squeal the loudest.
