Belts were put on too tight or have gotten too loose after they were replaced. the nuts that hold the parts in place may not have been tight enough causing the parts to move , which loosens the belt. maybe the belts were stretched too tight when replaced,....... either will cause squealing...good luck

How do you bleed the power steering on 2004 escape


CAUTION: If the air is not purged from the power steering system correctly, premature power steering pump failure can result. The condition can occur on pre-delivery vehicles with evidence of aerated fluid or on vehicles that have had steering component repairs.
  1. NOTE: A whine heard from the power steering pump can be caused by air in the system. The power steering purge procedure must be carried out prior to any component repair for which power steering noise complaints are accompanied by evidence of aerated fluid. Remove the power steering fluid reservoir cap. Check the fluid.
  1. Raise the front wheels off the floor. For additional information, refer to Section 100-02 .
  1. Tightly insert the stopper of the vacuum pump into the reservoir.
  1. Start the engine.
  1. Install the vacuum pump, apply vacuum and maintain maximum vacuum of 68-85 kPa (20-25 in-Hg).
  1. CAUTION: Do not hold the steering wheel against the stops for more than 3 to 5 seconds at a time. Damage to the power steering pump can occur. Cycle the steering wheel fully from stop to stop 10 times.
  1. Stop the engine.
  1. Release the vacuum and remove the vacuum pump.
  1. CAUTION: Do not overfill the reservoir. Fill the reservoir and install the reservoir cap.
  1. Visually inspect the power steering system for leaks.

Bad steering rack & or steering pump

Try flushing the fluid, as you should be doing every 3

After that-- have to diagnose & start changing parts-- if
you don't like the noise

When im driving the car moans and moans even louder when i turn the wheel, the faster i drive the louder the sound gets


You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced

Changed the rack in a 99 taurus but its fine then when you turn the car off fluid blows out the top of powr steeering pump


HI there it's must likely that you have too much fluid in and or there is air in the system.
to fix problem drain power steering sys by disconnecting one of the hoses at the pump
and saving the fluid to reuse.
ones system is drained reconnect hose and fill 1/4 of the tank .
start engine and turn steering wheel all the way too the left&right three times each.by doing these
you are removing air from the system
now with engine running and steering wheel at center check fluid level and fill to the mark
on the stick .

good luck

My brakes and power-steering are not working. The brake pedal is hard, but the brakes will not engage. The power steering was not working at the same time. It has brake fluid, but when I took the power...


Yes, your brakes are boosted by the power steering pump rather than by vacuum. I don't think it's air in the system. More likely your pump has failed, but you can try bleeding the pump. Here is a procedure from autozone.com:

Observe the following:
Use clean, new power steering fluid type only Hoses touching the frame, body or engine may cause system noise. Verify that the hoses do not touch any other part of the vehicle. Loose connections may not leak, but could allow air into the steering system. Verify that all hose connections are tight.


NOTE Power steering fluid level must be maintained throughout bleed procedure.

  1. Fill pump reservoir with fluid to minimum system level, FULL COLD level, or middle of hash mark on cap stick fluid level indicator.
    NOTE With hydro-boost only, the oil level will appear falsely high if the hydro-boost accumulator is not fully charged. Do not apply the brake pedal with the engine OFF . This will discharge the hydro-boost accumulator.
  2. If equipped with hydro-boost, fully charge the hydro-boost accumulator using the following procedure:
    1. Start the engine.
    2. Firmly apply the brake pedal 10-15 times.
    3. Turn the engine OFF

  3. Raise the vehicle until the front wheels are off the ground.
  4. With key in the ON position and the engine OFF , turn the steering wheel from stop to stop 12 times. Vehicles equipped with hydro-boost systems or longer length power steering hoses may require turns up to 15 to 20 stop to stops.
  5. Verify power steering fluid level per operating specification.
  6. Start the engine. Rotate steering wheel from left to right. Check for sign of cavitation or fluid aeration (pump noise/whining).
  7. Verify the fluid level. Repeat the bleed procedure if necessary.

2002 hyundai elantra power stearing pump replaced. Loud squeal and chatter when stearing left or right. HELP


was the p/s system bleed of air properly before running the new pump. wheels should be off the ground and the fluid reservoir full then wheels turned from left to right all the way and top of fluid as needed. then start engine and continue to cut left and right. fluid aeration will cause premature pump failure and noise. also ensure that no other parts are restricted, i have seen faulty valves in the rack or lines cause restrictions in the flow and cause the pump to fail even new ones. hope this will help you

Ford focus power steering problem


Hi, it does sound like your on the right track as the noise gets louder when you turn the wheel. without turning the wheel you should have a slight noise that will get louder when you turn the wheel this would then point me to believ the power steering pump needs replacing.

As your not loosing any fluid then the rest of the steering should be ok so changing the pump will solve your problem, just remember to make sure you bleed the pump properly and the steering properly after fitting the new one as not doing this properly could cause damage to seals inside the rack itself causing more problems than you need so double check you have bled all the air out ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Makes a noise when i drive and gets louder when i turn the wheel. i think its low power steering fluid. the wheel is harder to turn now.


Check the fluid, if it's low put some in it, if it still does it, the power steering pump might be on it's way out.

Fluid Leaks in Hemi 5.7L Vehicles


If your car steering is groaning chances are you need the power steering pump repaced. Open the hood and look for fresh moisture and you can usualy trace it back to the leak.
Or take a large piece of card board and park the front of your car on it, trace around the front wheels and let it set unitl enough fluid is gatthered to identify color and texture, then take your car along with the cardboard to a service station you trust
