Hard to steering


do u have any power steering fluid in ur pump? This will cause it to steer hard and should also be making a high pitch whining noise. I believe u need a new power steering pump and if the hoses going to the pump are leaking, then you will need to replace them as well.

We have a 2008 GMC Envoy. It started making a high pitch squeel as soon as we started the car and only stops when the car is turned off. We changed the serpentine belt and both bearing. But the squeeling...


Its vary likely a bearing noise . Eighter the altenator power steering pump air pump or water pump . Although it could also be the belt tenisinor its a big time ware part . Thats what i would look at first .The water pump would be leaking from the bottom . The altenator would be giveing you battery problems charging . The air pump if you have one would show signs in engine porformance . The power steering pump you may not notcce a porformance issue .Its likely the belt tenisioner

My 1994 Intrepid recently began to make a different sound when i rev the engine. It is a high pitched squeal, it sounds like a go-cart. The steering wheel also makes a loud grinding sound when i turn it.


check your power steering fluid and pump, also these units have a problem with the rack and pinion unit, but start at the power steering fluid resovior and look for leaks, low fluid will cause the pump to starve for fluid cause irrepairable damage and noise as well... please rate my help, thanks

2004 Chrysler 300m has high pitched squeeling noise during low-speed turns. (parking lots, driveways). Had a power steering flush and had serpentine belt replaced with no improvement. 103,000 miles...


Sounds like the serpentine belt is slipping . Most likely you have a bad belt tensioner. Another possibility is your steering pump could be going out. Ball joints and tie rods make clunking or knocking sounds when they are bad.

Very hot alternator after just replacing and a high pitch squeel


THE ALTERNATOR CAN GO OUT DUE TO A WEAK OR BAD BATTERY CAUSING IT TO OVERCHARGE TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. IT WILL HAVE A HIGH PITCH NOISE WHILE CHARGING AT A HIGH RATE AND FINALLY IT TO WILL GO BAD.

HAVE THE BATTERY TESTED AND CHECK THE CHARGE RATE AT THE ALTERNATOR AND AT THE BATTERY.
