The steering components need to be greased is my first option, but if this doesn't help, then your problem could be the power steering pump causing the sound.

2007 cadillac esclade ext front end squeaking.


well it can still be anything, locating a steering/suspension noise can be hard. Based on what you typed, what first comes to mind is the steering pump is worn out. If it is more of a low whining sound instead of squeaking, its probably the steering pump.

My 2005 chevy equinox whines while its running and when i accelerate it gets louder i replaced altenator and serpintine belt and it has a electric power steering pump could it be that or the water pum


Remove the belt to see if the whine goes away first.
Then determine which device has a rough bearing or too much play
in the pulley.
If it appears to be the power steering check the fluid level.
or if you still have it put the old alternator back on.
The offending device will vibrate so you could listen to each one
with a stethoscope made from a piece of hose.
enjoy your vehicle it sounds like you take care of it.

Does the chevy equinox 2005 use steering wheel fluid... If so, where is it located in the engine?


It is highly unlikely that you will find a car which does not use power steering fluid these days. Under the hood you will find several containers with lids (washer fluid; brake fluid; power steering fluid etc.) There will either be a clear symbol or words indicating which type of fluid to use. Make sure you use the type of fluid that is recommended by the manufacturer

My Chevy Equinox 2005 is making a noise when I turn left or right. the noise comes from the front wheels. I was trying to find where to put power steering fluid, which I could not find. What should I do?


depends on the noise , I know that sounds silly, but it works,, is the noise your hearing a clicking sound as you turn? if so, its the CV axles going out ,, From your info I don't know if you have the all wheel drive or just the front wheel drive, but if you hear clicking, its CV joints going bad, Now if what your hearing is a squealing noise, that would be the power steering pump, look at where your fan belt is and what all it drives,, one of those will be your power steering pump, some models have the fill tube for them right on the unit itself, and others have a off pump location for filling, however your year happens to be the a first generation and they used electronic power steering, and naturally you need to have it dealer checked

Ignition key will not turn on my 2005 chevy equinox


Try turning your steering wheel hard to left or right while trying to turn the key and see if that resolves tour problem. Sometimes if you shut the engine off with the wheels turned the power steering will hold pressure against the steering lock mechanism.

A power steering pump will whine if it is low on fluid, when you turn the wheels you will hear the whine or if the power steering belt is to tight you will also hear the whine. You will not hear this whine when the truck is stopped.
