Question about 2005 Buick Rendezvous

3 Answers

In my 2005 V6 Buick Rendezvous, the power steering has gradually gotten worse over past weeks. If I rev up the engine it steers fine. Going at higher speeds it is fine, but at low speeds I can barely turn the steering wheel. Power steering fluid "fill-up" cup is full. We replaced the power steering pump six weeks ago, with a rebuilt one, and it was some better, but not perfect, but now it has deteriorated to the point that I am concerned about driving it.

6 weeks is less than 90 days so you should have a warranty for a different pump.

Remember to use the correct fluid for the car. If you have rack and pinion steering it can be a different problem besides the pump.

Get a front end alignment so they can check the balljoints which contribute to your problem.

Where is the power steering fluid in a 2005 buick rendezvous


Depending on which pump they used ,if it is the pumpwith resivoir it would be on the belt side in the front .The cap will be a plain black cap.If it is the pump with an external resivoir it would be either on the firewall or mounted on the fender .It should have a black cap with power steering or power steering fluid written on it.I hope that helps a little bit.

I hear a kind of squeal or winding noise whenever turning the steering wheel in my 2005 Rendezvous,and I've added power steering fluid


your power steering belt might be loose or may have stretched due to weather related issues, or may have the adjustment worked loose. suggest you adjust the tension on the belt[power steering belt] youneed to have it tightened. you may even need a replacement pump. is it leaking fluid onto the ground? if so, it may be a loose hose or a busted hose. if you are mechanically inclined, please repost with specifics on if it's leaking fluid or belt is squealing? otherwise,i suggest you have it looked at from a professional. hope this helps and if you need further assistance with replacement of power steering pump, or directions of the belt tension,just ask. we will be happy to assist!

2002 Buick Rondevoux 3.4 V6. Makes a noise from the engine like a buzzing sound. Sounds seems to come from power steering pump. I had it changed twice and still have the sound. Car is quit for twenty...


if the noise is different in park, rev or drive , its in the trans. if no difference, take the belt off and see if its still there, its just a process of elimination. the fuel pressure regulator should have a vacuum hose on it, see if it changes when the hose is removed (higher pressure)
