SOURCE: my power steering pump makes a growling noise even

Does it make the growling noise when the fluid is at the correct level? If it does, the noise is a warning that your power steering pump needs to be replaced.

Power steering noise on turning; noticed no power


Check the ends of your rack & pinion for signs of a leak. If a leak is present, replace the rack & pinion. If no leaks, maybe your power steering pump is going out.

When I turn the steering wheel it grinds and moans like it's being shot. Is it the gearbox or the power steering pump, or neither?


These trucks are notorious for ball joints that make all kinds of noise. Start by inspecting the ball joints while someone turns the wheel side to side.

1. Jack up truck so wheels are free from ground.
2. With engine off turn wheel side to side and listen for your noise.
3. If you are not detecting the noise during this test the noise maybe in your power steering system.

Also note that sometimes the ball joints may not make noise unless the wheels are on the ground and loaded. In this case rocking the wheel should expose the location of your noise.

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.

Make sure you check your power steering fluid... if it's even low, it will make a terrible noise...run it on empty too long and your can ruin your power steering pump.
