Loud brake noise in 97 buick lesabre


When you had the drums off, did you inspect the shoes for excessive wear? And How do the drums look? Are they grooved? Can you be more specific about the loud noise. Does it sound like a grinding noise, or a screeching or pulsating noise. Is it lower pitch or high pitch?

The loud grinding noise may be due to worn pads or brake shoes. I suggest you have all brakes on the vehicle inspected for worn pads, shoes, and possibly worn rotors. The ABS light may indicate uneven brake functioning, so for safty sake, have the brake system checked out.

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.

2004 Ford Escape loud grinding noise, power steering stiff and belt covered w oil like substance?


Sounds like the power steering pump has failed.
You could take the serpentine belt off and check the pump pulley.

1997 buick lesabre limited, blower motor works sometimes.


More than likely a bad speed control. These are usually mounted inside the car near the bottom of the AC box. Another possibility is a bad connector under the hood. The offending connector is usually located on the right side of the car near the blower motor area. Look for a connector that has one large red or orange wire and two smaller wires. I have found these connectors burnt up on many occassions.

spin fast to charge the battery so it slips on the belt but thats what the noise is the belt check the battery at autozone for free
