The squealing can come from a couple of things. One is the lack of fluid in the reservoir and 2 would be a loose belt. The pump demands a lot of power from the engine through the belt when turning, that is why it squeals, you have to get it snugged up, real tight, some belts will squeal no matter what you do, they have belt dressings and other goodies for squealers, sometimes getting them so tight they snap doesn't help. A new belt may be in order, Is it a serpentine belt? Try tightening it up first. there is a square hole on the power steering pump for a 1/2 drive breaker bar,( or there should be) loosen the lock nut, torque over the whole unit with the bar and tighten up the nut before letting go. This should help. Check it out.

Possible solution may be a new serpentine belt. When you turn the steering wheel it is an added torque/tension against the belt from the power steering drive pulley. A worn and dry belt may tend to squeal as the extra grip on that pulley is applied. You would have to pinpoint just where the squeal is coming from to be sure the power steering pump is the origin of the noise. There may also be other reasons if its due to a worn out belt, idler and tensioner pulley's could be making noise as well.

When turning wheel a squealing noise comes from the steering coloum.........seems like it might be worse going into a corner hard........may sound like something turning in the coloum itself...............


The squealing noise when turning the steering wheel happens in most cases when the power steering fluind is low. Check to see if there is power steering fluid in the reevoir. If not add fluid to the proper level and the squealing should stop. Good luck

When turning the steering wheel of my 2003 Saturn Vue, it makes a gutteral noise from the steering column. It is like a bullfrog croaking as long as the wheel is being turned and returned.


mine did the same thing. Where the steering column goes through the firewall (floor) there is a rubber seal. That seal has gotten dry. Apply a small amount of lube where the shaft goes through and turn the steering wheel. This helped eliminate my squeal.

When I go to turn the wheel in my 2000 ford ranger I hear loud squealing noises. I checked the power steering fluid and its full. What can it be?The squealing starts as soon as I turn the wheel to the left...


The power steering pump is normally connected or driven by the engine with a V-belt. A loose belt can cause squealing as soon as the power steering come under load (e.g. steering left or right while stopped).

Check the tension on the V-belt directly connected to the power steering pump. This may need replacement.

Hoep this helps.

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.

you have to bleed the power steering system. you have someone turn the wheels to the left while you watch the power steering fluid level adding as needed. than repeat turning the wheels to the right. and repeat until the noise seems to get quieter and you don't have to ad any more fluid.


hope this helped
please rate well

1997 dodge avenger 2.0, belt squealing


Hi

The Power Steering Belt tension requires adjustment, to give it more tension, to cure the slipping, resulting in the squealing, or perhaps renewal, due to cracking or excessive wear.

Your Power steering Belt, belt is your primary problem.

Good Luck !

A FixYa Would Be Nice, Thank´s......John.

Rubbing/squealing noise in front passenger side wheel well


Repeat the experiment and rotate wheels at same time. Might be just coincidence and it is actually a belt. My guess would be power steering.
