As far as the grease fittings are concerned, you should have between 2 to 6 fittings. 1 on each upper control arm, 1 on each tie rod, and possibly 2 on the center links. If you are hearing a rubbing noise, it could possible be the wheels rubbing on the inside of the wheel well. Alot of people like to put bigger tires on 4x4's to add give them extra clearance off the ground, specifically for off roading. But with the bigger tires could also come a wider tire, causing the rubbing. Have your tire dealer check for correct tire size.

Noise in stering colum only when i drive staight, if i turn wheel one way or other noise stops


if you are drive straight all the time than that part of is getting worn out. you mite see if the are any type of grease points on the steering
column, the grease in the center or as you stated driving straight it make alot of noise, the grease has broken down and now it is metal on metal or plastic on plastic. where as you turn right or left it picks up a little grease and soon you will start hearing the noise in any direction because the grease is braking down or drying out.

make sure there enough fluid in the steering control box, mite look for a condition fluid.

Does a mazda 2006 have grease zerks


Check your vehicle's owner's manual service guide; contact the service or parts dept at a local Mazda dealership; visually (look) at the steering linkages, or call your local auto parts store...I know that some models have sealed units with no lube points and others that have lube points...the consideration is model and are the steering components stock or aftermarket?

Front end creaking noise


Have your rack and pinion steering unit checked. Here is a very good video that will help you understand rack and pinion. The creaking noise is likely from the grease in the joints that pivot when you turn your wheels.

Trans fluid is red/brown. Stick shows "Full". Noise when turning or going straight. Thank you Charles


Transmission fluid should be bright red. You need to get your transmission fluid changed. Also, the sound that you are hearing when turning and going straight could be your power steering pump going bad, or running dry. When the power steering fluid gets low, the power steering pump tries pumping air, making a growling/whining sound. Try checking your power steering fluid level.
Hope this helps,

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

Hello and thank you for your support, when turning the steering wheel either way left/right there is a squeaking noise, thinking of maybe greasing the car, also where do i add the grease to?


Flush the power steering fluid, and add some lubgard power steering additive, from auto parts store

LUBGARD brand only, or the one from a ford or lincoln parts counter.
( regular lubgard p/s--not for Honda Only )

You can grease if you have fittings,but that is not your squeaking noise.

Squeaking Steering!


Sounds like you might have ball joint problems.This usually happens when they are not greased.Some of these models do not have grease zerk`s.If it does then you can try greasing them but they might be plugged with rust.I would grease the whole front suspension.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I feel a slight thud in the steering and hear a light thud when I turn a corner; seems to happen most when the car has just started driving; is this an issue of power steering fluids, something in the rack...


This is most likely the steering knuckle or tie rod end that needs grease or most likley replacement. If your hear clunk when turning, then it is proabably the tie rod ends. If clunks while driving, then it may be the balljoints.

Steering Problem


Only lube points you might have are on the ball joints and outer tie rod ends. Many come "sealed" and have no provision for service, others will have zirk fittings or a small nut in them that needs to be removed and replaced with a fitting. Your power steering should also be checked to make sure that it's operating properly.

Squeak when turning, can also be made if vehicle is rocked


Your luckey to have grease zerks on your tierod ends most newer cars don't have any at all. If there any more they would be on the upper and lower ball joints, and maybe the a-frame bushings, but don't be surprised if you don't find any.
