What do the trouble indicator on the dashboard mean /


A trouble light can indicate any number of mechanical issues. A failed power steering pump could definitely cause the light to come on. Check for leaks under the engine.

Impala 2011 steering power noise


Have you checked the level of the power steering fluid if it is low it can cause a noise similar to what you described. The power steering pump could be starting to fail and making the noise. I would suggest checking the power steering fluid level and if low, they make some fluid that has power steering fluid conditioner, supposed to help extend the life of the power steering pump, if it is low you need to follow the lines from the pump and see if you can find a leak anywhere. also I would take notice of the color of the power steering fluid, if not too much trouble maybe take a picture of the fluid and upload it here, the fluid can break down and need to be replaced.

You have what they call a hydro boost system, the power steering pump give power steering assist, and give power brakes, so if your power steering hose looses fluid you get not power steering and no power brakes, So check the power steering hose for leaks if there is no leaks replace the powersteering pump

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. First, make sure the fluid level is correct. Next, make sure nothing has came loose, hoses, ect. If everything is ok, you need to check out the power steering pump. Make sure it is working properly. If it is not, replace it. It may be leaking so check for leaks also.

Squeeling belt, have replaced idler pulley, squeels when idling and turning with a/c on. Could it be the power steering pump?


Try using a very small spray of silicone spray on the belt next time you're hearing the squeal. If it temporarily stops, replace the belt. Check the p/s fluid level, if it's low it could cause the pump to make noise. Also if it's low, you have a leak, check all lines, connections and pull back the bellows boots on the p/s rack (if rack and pinion). Finally, pick yourself up a mechanic's stethescope, good tool for diagnosing accesory noises. Listen to all components while duplicating the noise.

Power steering fluid leak


The power steering pump is one of the devices that the fan belts operate. Follow all of the belts and note the pullys they run over. One of these devices will have two hoses about 1" in diameter comming out of it. Typically this is also where you fill the fluid when it is low, but not always. If you fill the fluid at a container on the side of the engine compartment, it will have a hosee that runs down to this PS pump as well.
Check for wetness along the lines especially at the terminal end of each line whre they meet the pump and where they meet the power steering box or rack. You may have to get under the car for this. If your car has a steering rack (about 2 feet long and three iN in diameter, look for fluid leaking at either end of the rack You can but rebuilt racks and have them installed by most garages. If that is the case have it done byy a garage that also does front end alignments as some adjustment in this are my be required

Good Luck

1997 Honda civic, fan belt?


It sounds like your power steering pump, not the belt. Have u checked the fluid level? If it's low it can make a 'growling' type noise. Any leaks under the car from power steering? U can check by putting a big piece of cardboard under the car at night, check where any leaks show up on it the next morning.
ålso check the belt for fraying or cracks (if u find any, replace it), also the belt tension, if it's loose, the belt may squeal (not what u describe),
