It could be low fluid in the power steering pump. just keep the fluid level perfectly and you wont hear that noise further.

It's a good chance that it's either wheel bearings or the CV joints.

My Chevy Equinox 2005 is making a noise when I turn left or right. the noise comes from the front wheels. I was trying to find where to put power steering fluid, which I could not find. What should I do?


depends on the noise , I know that sounds silly, but it works,, is the noise your hearing a clicking sound as you turn? if so, its the CV axles going out ,, From your info I don't know if you have the all wheel drive or just the front wheel drive, but if you hear clicking, its CV joints going bad, Now if what your hearing is a squealing noise, that would be the power steering pump, look at where your fan belt is and what all it drives,, one of those will be your power steering pump, some models have the fill tube for them right on the unit itself, and others have a off pump location for filling, however your year happens to be the a first generation and they used electronic power steering, and naturally you need to have it dealer checked

It has power steering. Why does it steer so hard?


Do you hear noises while turning the wheel at low speeds or stationary? If you hear a whining noise check the power steering fluid level. A low fluid level would make a whining noise as well as cause stiff steering. If you hear a squealing noise check the power steering belt tension. A slipping belt would cause stiff steering also. If you hear no abnormal noises check to make sure the power steering belt is there. If all of the above check out ok you may have a bad power steering pump, steering gear or a blockage in a pressure line.

Horn fuses all good but when i push button i don't have any horn or even hear relay. this all started after i had new bushing installed in steering wheel. Could the wires behind the wheel have been cut ?


Do you mean you had new bearings put in the top of the steering wheel column ? Do you have a tilt feature or a tilt / travel feature? Regardless, yes, the wire could have been cut, but I would suspect a poor connection in the slip ring or the horn pad connector was just not connected to the connector at the slip ring when it was put back together. Do you have cruise control switches on your steering wheel ? If so , I would pull steering wheel and check the slip ring connections first.

Steering wheel clicks on 1998 Subaru Legacy Outback wagon


steering column bearing sounds like a worn out steering column... jack the front wheels off the ground both sides relieve load on steering wheel to see if it lessens the amount of feel and noise, if it does it shoud be the column bearing, replace bearings or complete column,,, also try with the wheels off the ground and safely supported to manualy steer the wheels by hand and see if you feel in roughness or hear any noises,should some minor resistance but be smooth in it movement if everything suspension and steering component wise is in good working condition... please rate my help.. thanks...
