Most likely, the pump itself has reached the end of it's service life. Unless you are getting a very good deal, have him get the pump problem repaired or replaced before buying. Good luck!

I was looking at a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Sedan but the guy says when he turns on the car that the power steering makes noise at first then stops "not a big deal" could this be a big deal? What...


It could be a "big deal" or it could be relatively minor. Since you can't be sure before you buy make sure you offer low enough to pay for a power steering pump replacement - $400-$650 at the dealer. And the pump itself sells for $80- $272 if you replace it yourself - it is not that hard either.

Possible power steering pump


If you have noise, remove the serpentine belt and spin the pulleys to see which is making noise, has play, etc. I thought my power steering pump was bad, turned out to be the AC Clutch Bearing. Fairly easy to replace.

Can i drive with my 2001 aurora harmonic balancer making a loud noise


you can but i wouldn't. what has happened it the rubber in between the pully and balancer is dry rotted and bad and what is going to happen is the pully will come off it and the belt is going to fly off leaving you stranded with no water pump alternator and power steering and could cause damage to your motor. so i would get it fixed and the only driving i would do is nessary like getting it to a shop.

let me know if you have any more question. good luck

My 1999 dodge Intrepid makes a loud whining noise (like a power steering pump) any time it is running... Any ideas on what it could be?


if the winning noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel, it is the power steering pump.
99 to 04 intrepids have a serpintine belt with a self tightner.what i did with mine is **** the old power steering fluid out with a shop vac.replaced half with new fluid and top up with a transmission/power steering fluid additive.the noise went away after a couple of days.

Power steering pump and belt replacement on 1997 olds aurora


More than likely it's the A/C compressor clutch is going bad. Cut the old serpentine belt off and install a shorter belt to bypass the A/C compressor for now.
