First you need to verify where the noise is coming from. Squeaking and grinding is bad, like brakes, wheel bearings or ball joints.If you turn ther steering wheel while sitting still, that rules out brakes, or wheel brgs. The leak may be ps fluid, but check the hoses first, thats the most common thing to leak.

Why is there a grinding sound when turning? Power steering fluid is full


Grinding or whining? A lot of power steering pumps kinda whine when turning. How long has it been since you've changed the power steering fluid? Since 2000??? It looses it viscosity kinda like motor oil. I'd change it first, that's the cheapest and easiest thing to do

My steering is tight when I turn to the left I hear a slight grinding noise. I repalced the brakes and bearing.


U may want to grease ur steering knuckle under the hood or up under the dash if that does not help it may be that your steering column may have a problem with the pins inside , if so u should see a mechanic to diagnose the problem as the steering could lock up on you

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

When I turn the steering wheel, I hear a whining sound that gets louder the quicker I turn the wheel. It happens when turning left or right. Is this power steering? Or maybe an issue with the wheels?


u have a defectgive power steering pump, check the fluid level 1st, if that is ok flush the system and replace the pump, this will require a special power steering pulley puller and installer tool.

I'm hearing a very loud sound from my 1999 gram am gt also,


If it's a power steering pump low on fluid, it will buzz real loud and worse when you turn the steering wheel left or right.

Fill with power steering fluid. Look in owners manual for type of fluid.

when fluid is added, turn stering wheel full left and full right to purge trapped air.

If this does not fix, you may have a bad pump.

Please rate as fixya if ths solves your issue.

Rpeort back on rsults and good luck.
