Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent
My car, which has a little under 85,000 miles and recently inspected (first week of June), has begun to have a few problems this past week:
1. The power steering was beginning to make noises (which I fixed temporarily with power steering fluid)- the sound comes back every few days, and is fixed again with the fluid, so I am pretty sure that is a leak somewhere...
2. A few days ago I noticed my car was sounding a little louder than usual, so I lifted the hood while the car was running, and there was a loud-fan like noise coming from (I think), the left side of the car.
*Sometimes the belt squeals for a few seconds when I start up the car.
I am driving a few hours home in a few days. Could someone help me figure out what the problem may be, and if it is safe to drive home? Thanks!
POWER STEERING PROBLEM - CONTAINER CONSIST TWO LEVELS. SHOULD THE BOTTOM PART BE THE NORMAL COLOUR OF THE FLUID AND THE TOP PART APPEARS TO BE DIFFERENT THEN REMOVE THE CONTAINER AND CLEAN PROPERLY AS THERE IS A SIEVE BETWEEN THE TWO LEVELS WHICH IS BLOCKED. DRAIN OIL FROM POWER STEERING SYSTEM AND REFILL WITH NEW OIL.
iF BELTS WERE RECENTLY CHANGED THEN THE PROBLEM MIGHT LY BY ONE OF THE PULLEYS THAT IS WARN. MEANING THAT THE BELT INBEDDS TO DEEP INTO THE PULLEY AND CAUSE THE BELT TO SQUEL. SHOULD YOU POUR WATER ONTO THE BELT WHILE IT IS SQUELING IT PROVES THAT IT IS EITHER THE BELT THAT NEEDS REPLACELMENT OR ONE OF THE PULLEY PROVIDING THE BELT TENSION IS INSPECT
