Clunking noise when turning the steering wheel at stationary.


When rocking the steering there is usually some noise from a steering system that has a few miles on it especially from the majority of power steering types as not only is the rack slipper bearing likely to make noise but also the hydraulic spool valve and possibly even the rack end bush.
Sometimes the clunking noises can be worrying they are so loud.

If there are steering stops on the lower arms and hubs the noise can be very loud on full lock and a moving vehicle.

There might be track rod problems but there is no point guessing - the car has to be inspected, jacked up and the wheels shook to check for wear and free play and on the ground the steering wheel has to rocked while the steering gear is inspected.

If inspection finds nothing the noise is clearly caused by "acceptable" wear...

Very loud sound from steering pump motor


Depending on the vehicle type, check the power steering fluid. Make sure it's full up to the mark on the stick. If it's full, it's a bad pump.

Loud squealing noises when I turn the wheel of my 2000 ford range


It sounds like the power steering belt is too loose, tighten it up a bit but not too much just enough to make slipping belt stop.

2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise


It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.
