The belt driving the steering pump is slipping. Pump mounting can be adjusted to tighten belt. And you can buy stufff to make belt "stickier". But adjust tension first, that should do it.

The belt is slipping that drives the pump as the pump is pressure locking at the stops and the squeal is the belt slipping on the pump pulley

2007 cadillac esclade ext front end squeaking.


well it can still be anything, locating a steering/suspension noise can be hard. Based on what you typed, what first comes to mind is the steering pump is worn out. If it is more of a low whining sound instead of squeaking, its probably the steering pump.

1996 camry le 6 cylinder. cannot get ignition key to turn to start car. gear is in park and have tried adjusting steering wheel


Hi the steering lock could be causing you the problem try turning the steering wheel hard left whilst turning the key and do the same hard right.

it may be hard to turn but you should find once you have moved it slightly it will unlock allowing you to turn the key so dont adjust the steering wheel turn it to the right as if your trying to turn to the right and if this dont let the key turn turn the wheel to the left it only needs to move slightly to allow the steering lock to free the key,

doing the above should solve you problem

give me a shout back if you have any further problems ok

You need some power steering fluid. Fill to line markers on power fluid tank while car is off. Start car turn steering wheel all the way to the left then all the way to the right until squealling stops.If it does not stop check fluid level and if it needs add more.Put a cardboard box flat under the car to check for leaks. If no leaks continue filling to line marker until squealing stops.

Well a steering flush would not necessarily be related to squeaking.

So, you need to locate exactly where the sound is coming from...
It really sounds like steering wheel turning and resistance causes the noise, is this constant, or only while actually turning the wheel?

Likely it would be semi constant, so that would focus you on the assist portion... Be careful around all moving parts, but you need to locate the source.

Try taking a section of heater hose, and listen through one end and move carefully around with the other end and see what you find. Likely something under the hood, with your note about window open...

Now, if the squeaking stops when the steering wheel stops turning, now steering components are suspect.... So, again, louder with window down makes me think outside and in front...I would stand in front of the car, have your handy assistant actuate the steering wheel, and you decide which side, right or left.... Suspect items that squeak only during steering wheel input include, amongst other things, the entire strut, all ball joint, including joints in the steering linkage.... Be sure to keep clear of moving parts, your handy assistant would not know they they are crushing you, while truning the wheel......

My car makes a squeaking sound when turn my wheel


more than likely your power steering pump check it's level if it's low or really dark take it to have it looked at, if not then check your belt if it's getting streached it will slip when your turning the wheel and using pressure from the powersteering pump. hope this helps
