This is not in the correct section but will see if I can give you some direction. Typically the power steering fluid is topped off rarely needs changing. Taking one of the cables off running to the steering column you could drain the steering fluid this way. Then re-attach an fill to recommended levels. A suction device could also be employed.
Care must be taken to eliminate bubbles from forming.
Grinding noise especially speeding up or slowing down could be brakes. Have them checked ASAP.
Once the brake pads wear out it is then metal to metal. This will dig into the rotors/brake drums and make a grinding noise. You can often feel this when you apply the brakes. There are several ways a grinding noise can be generated with regards to a vehicle.
The trick is to isolate the noise and rule out the easiest to fix moving on to the more complicated area's.
Wheel (rubbing, bearings)
Alternator (Bearings/brushes)
Transmission drive (drive shaft, yoke)
Transmission (pinion and gear)
Probably many more but this hits a few high notes.
Hope this helps!

There is a noise coming from the front left wheel when the vehicle is in motion. It seems to speed up & slow down with the speed the vehicle is traveling. I can't tell what it is. If it's not brakes or a...

Another problem is the CV universal joint going to the wheel. this is inside a rubber boot to protect the constant velocity universal joint and maybe the boot has been damaged and allowed water/dirt inside. Find a large open parking lot and make a tight figure eight with the steering wheel all the way over and listen to see if the noise is louder. locking the steering wheel hard over turning left and then hard over turning right and if the noise is louder then your CV joint is bad. A squealing scraping noise could be worn out brake pads allowing the small L shaped metal tab to rub on the brake rotor causing the noise too. Look at the pad, the should be very thick riding against the brake rotor. You should be able to see the L bracket and if it is against the brake rotor, new brake pads are needed. A grinding kind of noise that changes its sound when you make small turns like avoiding pot holes could be coming from a bad wheel bearing. Jack that wheel off the ground and then grab the top and bottom of the tire and see if it wiggles on the axel. There should be no play at all if the wheel bearing is good. Regards, Dennis

Check the power steering fluid, it could be that it's just low. If it's full it might be time to get it changed. Also check the tension on the motor belt. If it's loose you won't get full power to the pump.

Why does power steering get harder at lower speeds

if the belt is nice and tight and is spinning around the pulley and fluids are full, then your steering pump is going bad

Engine whine, follows engine rpms, louder when I turn.

generally means a power steering pump issue. Go to a car parts store website and find one for your car, then find the thing under the hood, mounted to the engine and being spun by the belt, which looks just like it. often there is a cap with a dipstick and you can check the steering fluid level. if the level is way down you may have a leaking hose or other component.

about 2000 there was a shift away from the old style fluid pumps to electronic systems so do not be stunned if there is no such thing as a power steering pump for your car. but if the noise gets louder by moving the steering wheel, you still need to look at whatever is boosting the steering wheel motion to steer the car.

Squeaking/grinding noise when turning the wheel

Are the front brake pads ok? Some have squeal indicators, it is a tin plate that touches the disc (without damaging) to warn you that the brakes are worn. On the initial stages it will happen more so on slow cornering but will quickly get louder over a matter of days.
Check the pads for thickness, should be min 6mm

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

this noise is caused by a defective power steering pump, it is only covered if u have an extended warranty that covers other than the "powertrain" powertrain covered parts are engine, transmission and differential.

My ford focus 04 auto makes a grinding noise when the steering is on full lock to the right also the power steering fluid gets low very quickly

you have a power steering leak, when in full lock position the power steering pump is actually sucking in air and this is your noise. you will have to locate the leak and replace the leaking part and fill it to proper level.Ford will accept trans fluid for power steering fluid.
