Much will cost replace power steering


the hard power steering is given away by the loud squeaky noise . It is the drive bely slipping from worn out or needs adjustment.. If the key problem is in the switch the replace the switch of if it is not engaging the starter motor have a look at the battery connections (shiny clean and tight) or the solenoid or starter relay.

When I started my ford 08 explorer sport tracker in the cold it started while running i heard a winding noise for a minute then it was gone what could the noise from?


whining noises are usually the power steering pump. Check your power steering fluid levels. If they are fine do not worry about it, cold weather does this to the pump and goes away as you warm up.

My 2005 acura tl has a weird sound when its really cold outside. Its worse when your turn the car.


Hi:
If you are getting a growling sound, when it is cooler out side, and it happens when you are moving the steering wheel, then definitely consider your power steering pump as a suspect. Check to make sure that it is full of fluid. If the noise occurs when the wheel is moved, it isn't a safety factor, but won't get any better.

Humming noise from Steering Wheel


I have frequently run into this problem. The "clock spring" in the steering column has a plastic case (shrinks when cold/expands when temperature warms up). It's a design flaw, not a defect. Replacing the clock spring usually eliminates the noise for awhile, but eventually it returns. It's one of those things that drives some people up the wall, but others just ignore it.
