There is more pressure on the line when turning right, therefor more effort is needed by the power steering pump. You either need power steering fluid added, or a new power steering pump.

Find out what is causing noise from full steering lock on right and left , from stationery positon


Depends on what the noise sounds like. Some noise can be normal if you are holding the steering wheel at full lock . That is the pressure from the pump pushing hydraulic fluid through the steering box. If it is usually loud at the slightest turn..could be bad steering pump , leaking hose, leaking seal at steering box, even a bad belt.

What is causing the front end noise while in a hard turn (left or right) on my 2004 Toyota Sequoia?


The power steering pump capacity on some motor vehicles is unable to sustain full flow for more than a few seconds which could account for the noise which is the pump 'cavitating'. You might check the power steering reservoir fluid level in any case and read your car handbook for any warnings. I once owned a Mitsubishi Magna which had this limitation.

I hear a growling noise in the steering wheel every time I turn a corner, back up and turn the wheel, or turn into a parking space. Most of the time it is when I turn the wheel to the left. All fluids have...


Yes. Hi. the plastic trim around the base of the steering wheel and the steering column have an imperfection in one area that causes them to rub in a certain spot every time, are out of place slightly or are for some other reason making contact and creating a noise. Get right down there and turn the wheel and look for a rub. When you spot it use a sharp razor blade knife to trim it a wee bit. J.
or, you have an issue with the steering shaft somewhere.

2004 RX 330: intermittent power steering loss, hard to turn, so...


I think you may have a problem with your electric assisted power steering motor. Is the loss in power only when your are making sharp turns to the right or left?
Do you hear any load noises or squeling sounds?
You should have it inspected, Don't want you to lose control while driving.

Power steering problem it has fluid but when i want to turn to the right it gets harder to turn when i turn to the left it doesn't do that I have a 2004 avalanche 5.3L


suspect it's your rack. The pump is working fine it you can turn left with no problems. Use to call it morning sickness, cars would be hard to turn untill it warmed up... hope this helps.

What would cause the power steering and the power brakes to fail on a chevy avalanch


Check power steering fluid level.
Power steering pump provides hydraulic assistance to you brakes.
if the level is low, add fluid and check if there is a leak somewhere.
If the level is OK, suspect a bad power steering pump.
Hope it will help

2004 chev silverado ext cab. No Power steering


Hi Hollings,

You description was very good, I need to ask for a specific.

When you turn to the left, the wheel is stiff like the engine is off or does it turn smoothly but the vehicle doesn't turn or seem to respond.

I'm trying to rule out broken mounts,

Also, if the wheel is all the way to the right, is it difficult turning back to the left the whole way, or half way. See where I'm going.?

Please comment back your findings

Best regards
Mike

VW touareg steering judder low speed left/right turn


Sounds like you have air in your steering system. I would start by looking for any leaks on your steering system like hose to fitting crimps, steering pump, etc. Check your steering fluid level to make sure it is full and also look for bubbles on the dip stick. If everything looks good, start the vehicle and turn the wheels all of the way to the left and then to the right. Do this while the vehicle is in park and repeat at least 5 times. This will work out any air in your steering system. If the problem persists then the power steering pump may need to be replaced.
