Mine did the same thing. Where the steering column goes through the firewall (floor) there is a rubber seal. That seal has gotten dry. Apply a small amount of lube where the shaft goes through and turn the steering wheel. This helped eliminate my squeal.

Saturn VUE's don't use power steering fluid - the PS system is electrical. I have the same isue with my Saturn 2003 VUE - when turning the steering wheel it squeals and there is more resistance. Searching for a solution, help!

Sounds like the fluid is low. Add power steering fluid if low can check for leaks. It probably has some hesitation as well and doesn't seem smooth while turning, this is also due to low fluid.

    There is no power steering pump, or fluid. It has electronic assist steering.

In my 2003 Saturn Vue, whenenver I turn the wheel left or right I hear a squeaking nose coming from the wheel (inside of the car) what could this be?


moz-screenshot.jpgThere is a TSB for your complaint from Saturn: Here's the jist of it.

Condition: Some customers may comment on a squeak or squeal noise coming from the base of the steering column while turning vehicle.
Cause: The squeak or squeal noise may be caused by insufficient lubrication of the intermediate steering shaft-to rubberboot- contact area.
you may be able to get it warrantied through saturn. this is the TSB #

Saturn vue ignition key won't turn


It was very likely that the problem turning the key was due to the steering column lock mechanism. Sometimes when you lock the steering wheel, if you the mechanism will bind up, making it difficult to unlock the ignition with the key. Often when this happens, you will be parked on a hill with your wheels agains a curb or some such item. Once you turn the wheel hard to the right (or left), the pressure is released on the locking mechanism, and the key will turn easily. This is a similar situation to what can happen in an automatic if you park on a hill without the parking brake.
try doing this:
pop the off the circle piece around the ignition and the holster cover under the steering wheel.
that ought to work.

Old car noise or trouble?


i have seen a lot of cars make noise when you turn the wheel all the way one way or the other and usually it is either the upper or lower ball joint. it will be louder when its really cold. i would jack the car up and see if there is any play in the ball joints.
