Is the power steering fluid at the proper level?

Is the belt worn or loose? Follow hoses from power steering to the pump which is connected to the belt. Google worn belts or belt tension for details.

Installed a new power steering cooler line in a 2000 Hyundai elantra. My question is how do u bleed the system. Squealing and hard to turn


Best way to bleed ps syetem is to jack up front wheels, to remove the load so you won't have squealing as you turn the steering wheel side to side many times to remove the air in the system.

STEERING ISSUE


First, how's your power steering fluid level?
Is your power steering belt squealing?
If these questions don't fi the problem, you may have to bring to a service center (like Pep Boy's, or Town Fair Tire, some one you can trust) and tell them your problem!
Good luck.

When doing a hard turn it squeals


"WHAT" squeals when doing hard turns? If you are hearing the tires squealing on the pavement, then you may have a suspension or wheel alignment problem. If you are hearing a squeal in the engine compartment, you may have a loose or badly worn drive belt that is running your power steering pump. A sqealing belt can also be the result of a broken or weak belt tensioner.

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

2005 Honda civic: when the AC is on water leaks to the passenger side floor and a squeal noise is heard when the car makes a hard left turn.


The squeal, first:
Noises are difficult to diagnose without hearing them in person. There are too many potential causes; maybe the power steering pump (turning the wheel to lock causes this), maybe tires, maybe a cv joint.
The A/C water is condensation that occurs because of the cold. This is perfectly natural and is a sign of a very cold-blowing A/C unit.

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.

Loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?


Hi! The pulley could be worn or the belt is not properly adjusted.Causing the belt not to grip the pulley but slide on it,creating a friction.
