Okay, i have a 1995 Camaro Z28.. i have a weezy power steering noise and i dont know how to fix it. whenever i turn my steering wheel to the max it squeels. even when im driving in 1st and 2nd gear i can...

Bleed the system. Add fluid to the fill line on the power steering fluid once it is warm. Then turn the wheels to each side all the way and leave all the way for about 5 secs. Do this two or three times. Check the fluid level. Keep doing this till the fluid level does not go down.

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

Steering wheel makes grinding noise when it is turned

it could be low on powersteering fluid, its just vibrating through the colum so you could check that first, or it could be the steering wheel shroud the plastic that covers the colum behind the steering wheel, take it off and see if it still does it,check fluid first though...hope this helps

Seems like grunt or grind in steering colume

What color is the power steering fluid?
If it is dark and/or grayish you may have a power steering pump which has ground itself to death.
While grinding has contaminated the complete system.
The cure in most Ford products with this PS pump is a complete power steering pump replacement and steering rack change with a good hose/line flushing before reconnecting.

1995 Olds Achieva S Grinding upon starting

They make that kind of noise if its low on fluid, and also depending on how cold it is they will make a lot of noise because the colder it is the thicker the oil is and the harder it is to pump. I am not there to hear the starter, If the starter is making noise it will only be audiable while your on start, i dought starter will make that noise while its running unless the drive is sticking . Have both the pump and starter chk.out.

1984 Toyota PU 4WD 22R Engine Makes Squealing noise at PS pump

you have to bleed the power steering system. you have someone turn the wheels to the left while you watch the power steering fluid level adding as needed. than repeat turning the wheels to the right. and repeat until the noise seems to get quieter and you don't have to ad any more fluid.

hope this helped
please rate well

Power sterring pump?

If you have checked the belt (it still has one that is) the grinding noise will be the pump but the loss of fluid could also be the steering rack at fault, try to find out where its leaking from
