2000 Mercury Sable Ball Joint?

The car makes a screeching noise when I turn left. I thought power steering but it seems to be full of fluid and pumping. Somebody suggested either tie rod or ball joint.

    I just took my 2000 Mercury Sable in for alignment and they found that the whining noise when turning the steering wheel DOES have to do with the power steering. Mine has been whining for a long time but recently has been very hard to turn. My fluid reservoir is also full, but there is a filter in there and it's clogged so no fluid is getting through. Filter can't be changed separately, you have to buy a new reservoir. Be sure and get this checked out. Mechanic temporarily poked some holes in the filter so some fluid can get through, but that can't be a good thing for long! Also, one front ball joint is bound ("frozen") up because it's dry (shoulda had 'em lubed ever so often), and another is dangerously loose. Can't have car aligned until ball joints are fixed.

    I want to let you know that the rubber boot at base of steering shaft inside drivers compartment just left of accelerator pedal needs to be greased I dont know if this is preventive maintenance but it does work if you have a howling sound when you turn the wheel try this first because ball joints squeak most of the time that is the lower joint in the jobs that I have performed but please get A certified opinion if this does not satisfy your diagnosis yours truly Bing.

Wheel bearing. Lift the car so the wheel is not supported and twist it up nd down,, then right and left. You will feel the play.

My 2008 MERCURY MARINER is making screeching noise when turning wheel to right. I went over a cement curb when it started!

Sounds like you damaged the bellows that protects the ball joint releasing all or most of the lubricating fluid that protects it hence metal to metal on movement hence screeching noise I hope this helps
