Without being able to jack the car up and really look at it, it is hard to tell what you need exactly. It could be anything from low fluid level in the power steering pump to the rack and pinion. I would suggest you jack the car up and support it on jack stands or blocks and take a good look at it while someone is moving the steering wheel from side to side slowly. Look and listen!

IF your unit has POWER steering, it might be low on fluid, check this first. taking off the cap on the power steering unit itself,,,fill it with correct power steering fluid, IF it continues to make this noise, you might need to replace it??

When I turn the steering wheel, I hear a whining sound that gets louder the quicker I turn the wheel. It happens when turning left or right. Is this power steering? Or maybe an issue with the wheels?


u have a defectgive power steering pump, check the fluid level 1st, if that is ok flush the system and replace the pump, this will require a special power steering pulley puller and installer tool.

Ford focus power steering problem


Hi, it does sound like your on the right track as the noise gets louder when you turn the wheel. without turning the wheel you should have a slight noise that will get louder when you turn the wheel this would then point me to believ the power steering pump needs replacing.

As your not loosing any fluid then the rest of the steering should be ok so changing the pump will solve your problem, just remember to make sure you bleed the pump properly and the steering properly after fitting the new one as not doing this properly could cause damage to seals inside the rack itself causing more problems than you need so double check you have bled all the air out ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Power steering making loud noise/harder to turn wheel


Hello, from the sounds of it your power steering pump is going bad. Two things to check is one, pull off the cap and smell the fluid to see if it smells burnt. If it does you will need to change the power steering pump. Another thing to check is to make sure the belt is good and snug that runs the pump, the noice could be the belt slipping. You may need to tighten it or change it depending on how it looks. I'd check the belt first as that is the cheaper fix.

Have you checked the level of the fluid? Many times when you get a noise from the power steering, it's because the fluid level is low. Check the reservoir and make sure the level is right - there's usually an indicator stick built into the bottom of the cap, marked to show levels of min and max, or low and full. If you are low, the fluid is available at any auto parts store. Just pour a little in, check the cap level again, and continue to add as needed.

Power steering noise


First thing is to check the level of the power steering fluid. If you're low, add enough to bring it back into range. If not, remove the cap and jack the front end off the ground (both wheels). With the cap off, turn the wheel lock to lock, back and forth, several times, to see if any air bubbles need to be bled out (this will bleed them). Then check the fluid level again and top it off as needed.

If neither of these helps, have the steering system checked by a shop - you may have a problem with the steering shaft, the tie rods, or the rack itself.
