C320 MERCEDES STEERING NOISE

I have a "clicking" noise in my steering column when I start up the engine and it lasts about 1 minute then goes away. It does this every time I start my car. What could be the problem?

There is an electronically controlled valve that controlls the use of petrol vapours from the charcoal cannister \ similar which is mounted to the engine bay by a hard rubber mount.
It is related to the emission control side of things.
This usually operated at the 1st start of the day or after a long period without starting and makes a slight happering sound before going away.

This could be a serious problem. Listen real closely the next time your car is started. Is the noise coming from the steering column or the ACTUAL Dash area. Listen closely to see if it is coming from the area where the key is pushed into the ignition. If so!! This could get real bad quickly. There is a unit in there that controls almost everything with the key in the (ON) Position. CHECK AND LISTEN! Also if its not anything like this it could be your (Air Conditioning flaps) They open when the car is turned on to the last known position and something could be stuck in there!

1994 Buick LeSabre has clicking noise in steering column when reversing.


Could it be coming from the dash??? That car might be old enough to have a speedo cable. Another thought, I know some Caddys that had an automatic park brake release. You had to put it in gear for the Park brake to release. Hope that helps.

S430 2002 is making noise when steer left or right, but goes away what could it be?


If its a groaning noise and its worse when cold it might be the power steering fluid is low, as the vehicle warms up the level rises and the pump stops sucking air, check the power steering fluid first

2001 chrysler voyager makes loud noise when steering left and right - manual says lubricate steering wheel shaft. How is that done?


the shaft itself cannot be lubricated. at the bottom of the steering column under the dash move the carpet out of the way as much as possilble and look at the rubber boot,spraying somm sylicone lube in there will get rid of a rubbing noise. if it is making a clunking noise when steering look at the tie rods for loosesness. if it clunks when hitting bumps look at the ball joints and more than likely the stabilizer bushings at the lower controlarms and the body where it is attatched are worn out,this is quite common..

Loud whirring noise at start-up


The first thing to check would be to make sure the power steering reservoir is not running near empty, locate the filler cap for the power steering pump it should be marked and then add the appropriate amount making sure you don't over fill, that may make the sound go away if not we must move on to the next possibility, by the way if the noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel it is most likely the power steering pump or fluid level is low.
