Question about 1988 Volvo 740

Squealing noise while turning wheels at low speeds

This squeal noise only seems to occur with high load such as when in reverse or initial acceleration while turning the wheels. The service light has recently come on and a rattling noise from the heat shield has just become a problem. It's an 88 Volvo 740 GLE wagon. I believe they are all pretty simple things to fix but will post the results after the mechanic takes a look at it.

The squeeling nose is a loose or worn out power steering belt have you mechanic replace and tighten the belt, most of the time the heat shield fastener or mounting hole has rusted out and no tuely effective repair can be performed

When driving or starting the car i notice when using the brakes it makes a squeaking noise - not all the time think its possibly damp causing it as it was raining yesterday and it happened but no rain...


To address your first problem squeaking brakes aka "brake squeal", is most often casued by one or 2 things: "Pad vibration" or a "low brake warning sensor".

Pad vibation is usually caused by ineffective pad anti-rattling clips & hardware that allow the pads to vibrate at a super fast speed whenever the brakes are applied, thus causing a high pitch brake squeal. To correct this, replace all the pad hardware and anti-rattling clips and make sure you use a quality pad set that has anti-rattling plates attached to the backs of them. Weather conditions do affect brake squeal, that is why it seems to be worse at times.

Low brake warning sensor squeal occurs when your brake pads reach the point of replacement, the sensor attached to the pads scrapes on the rotor which produces a high pitch squealing sound to warn you it's time for new pads.

As far as your second problem goes (a knocking sound), I'll need more information about the problem before I can offer a possible cause (eg. happens on left or right turns, while going over bumps, at high or low speeds, accellerating...).

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

Squeeking noise at slow speeds


If its squealing from the wheels at low speeds with your foot OFF the brake pedal, check the brake pads. There is an EARLY WARNING SENSOR that's squeals like chalk on the blackboard when the brakes get low. Could be totally off on this one , but hope it helps.

Rubbing/squealing noise in front passenger side wheel well


Repeat the experiment and rotate wheels at same time. Might be just coincidence and it is actually a belt. My guess would be power steering.

You have a loose belt on the A/C. On most new cars that is one big belt that drives everything on the car. If when you look at the belt on the grooved side, do you see cracks on the grooved part running across (from side to side) on the belt? if so, it is in bad need of a new belt. A new belt should stop the squealing noise. While you are replacing the belt also check the belt tensioner to ensure it is in good working order.
