Mechanic replaced the rack and pinon that was leaking-that was the noise, air getting into the hose. The engine was a seperate problem and the IMP?? was replaced. The part was cheeper than the labor cost for this one!!

When turning right I hear a grinding sound but only right.also hear whining sound at 45 mph


You have got a broken wheel bearing on the left hand wheel,when you turn right all the weight goes on the left so the grinding you say you have will be from the brakes then you have the whine which is typical wheel bearing.
Make sure you have it replaced as soon as possible.
How this helps.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

2001 Ford windstar has a rumble/vibration on left front when driving over speeds of 10 mph. Consstant and increases with speed.


It sounds like you have a bad spindle/hub. You will need to jack up the front left tire, remove the wheel and the brake caliper and pads. Now spin the hub by hand. If you hear a grinding like sounds or low rumble sound, or there is more resistance than normal, replace your hub/spindle assembly.

A LOUD hum from the right front while driving a 2001 Windstar. I assume it to b the wheel bearing. Is their another possible reason for this noise?


Could be road noise from a shifted belt in the tire. could be a drive axle going out. those wheel bearings dont hum 99% of the time when they go bad,generally they have a low grinding sound,espesially when you turn,and your teering gets a bit loose and sloppy.
also check to make sure that you dont have a broken strut that may be touching the tire..try putting on your spare and see if that fixex it,if so its a shifted belt in that tire.

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in


Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

1998 for windstar gl..grinding noise in steering


i don't think it is the pump. The pump would generally make a noise all the time because the motor's belt is what powers your power steering pump. Sometimes you will hear it bog down the motor when it is being turned all the way to one side or the other but that sould be about it. The grinding you described sounds like a rack and pinion problem and not anything to do with the pump itself. I hope im wrong because rack and pinion fixes are much more expensive and time comsuming to repair

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.
