Yes, this is an indicator the pump is low on fluid or failing. Check your fluid level, if that is good then replace the pump.

You can check the fluid level, but it is sounding like it is the power steering

2006 toyota camray streeling wheel makes noise


Try the simple stuff first. Is the noise coming from the steering wheel or from under the hood? If it's under the hood you might be low on power steering fluid. Check that first... If not, I suggest you take it to a reputable mechanic

I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. It has developed a loud hum and vibration to the steering wheel from the front end .it has 180,000km. Any ideas?


How are the tires? New? Old? Rotate them and see if noise goes away. Possibly front wheel bearing in the front drive axle where it goes thru the hub and rotor.......goes the noise get worse if you turn right or left slightly when driving it? If it gets worse on one side that is the side with the bad bearing.....replace as needed.

Loud grinding noise under hood, oil like substance on a belt, Power Steering Stiff, has PS fluid


Almost sound like your rack and pinion cylinder has gone bad. I would start by cleaning the area real well to get rid of the oil. With the car running have someone sit inside and turn the wheels from left to right while you stand and watch to see if you can see oil leaking and from where and also to see if you can tell where the grinding is coming from. Please do not try to clean the engine with it running as you will get burned from heat and your clothes may become tangled in moving parts.

If it gets worse as you're turning right, but not left - Most definitely a wheel bearing on the right side. The right turn puts more stress on the right wheel - louder noise - turn left and release the stress - no noise. You can also lift the vehicle up on a jack and listen to the wheel and hear the bearing in the hub making noise.

IF your unit has POWER steering, it might be low on fluid, check this first. taking off the cap on the power steering unit itself,,,fill it with correct power steering fluid, IF it continues to make this noise, you might need to replace it??

Recently noticed when driving over 40mph, I hear a loud humming like tire tread noise, coming from the front. When I'm turning right it gets worse. Turn left and it virtually vanishes. Is this the...


yes.this means the left wheel bearing is bad, because when you turn right the pressure is pushing down on the left wheel causing noise and when you turn left the pressure then pushes down on the right side removing pressure from the left side causing noise to stop.. this is why when you turn one way or the other the noise stops and starts.

Faint to loud humming noise while driving and turning...


Could be either a loose belt or you are low on power steering fluid,or the power steering pump could just be worn out.

Very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only


you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.
