Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Your motor bearings are failing. It is most often caused by a leaking pump seal. It is a relatively inexpensive repair if it is caught early enough; before the shaft is damaged from the corrosive water eating into the steel.

Take it to a local electric motor repair shop for inspection. It will likely need a set of 203 bearings for the motor and a mechanical seal for the pump. All told, depending on the labor rates, it should be less than $75. You could try to repair this yourself however if you are not familiar with the process it is money well spent having someone who is do the repair for you.

Ice is building up and making fan noise. I replaced the defrost thermostat. Four or five days, it starts making noise again. Any ideas where to look after replacing the thermostat?


I suppose it's possible the fan has some issues of clearance. You may be able to adjust it to provide needed clearance. But if the Ice build-up is excessive, there may be a "timer" that may have an effect on the amount of ice build.

Taco 1600 series in line pump makes an occasional "chirping" noise that transmits through all three stories of the facility through the plumbing, could this be a sing of a failing bearing, pump is 10 years...


Pumps can have noises from bearings, bushings, cavitation and excess wear on the impellor and the wear rings. It is time to take it out of service and inspect it.

2008 sienna, How do you check a fuel pump with no test port for fuel pressure check on the vehicle.


No solution here, but wondering what your next step was...I think the same thing happened to me, but wanted to check the fuse at least before I have my van towed to some mechanic in Italy. Did you locate the fuse? Which box and was it labeled something other than fuel pump?

Some time when i start my car the engine will make a humming sound. and some time when i am driving the engine will make the same noise.


Turn off the airconditioning to see if that helps. If it does, then it is likely the airconditioning compressor.

Remove the water pump drive belt. Feel the water pump for free play. If excessive, then replace the pump. You can try spinning it too to see if it's noisy.

WIth the drive belts off, start the car for a few seconds. Twenty seconds tops should do it. Not too long as it will overheat.
Is the noise still present. If not, then check all pump bearings, pulley bearings, tensioner bearings, water pump etc as the noise is one of those things.

Power steering leaks from the cap


could be overfull
remove excess to the full mark on the dipstick
could be a problem power steering pump bypassing excessive oil back to the reservoir under pressure and heating and expanding the oil
take it to an accredited power steering service center and have a pressure test done on the pump
the humming noise indicates a valve problem leaking under pressure

Pump makes an excessive amount of noise


This noise will most propbably come from the motor bearings.My suggestion is that you replace the motor bearings together with the pump shaft mechanical seal.

Can low steering fluid cause mechanical problems


Problems associated with low power steering fluid…

Hard Vehicle Steering
A low power steering fluid level can often times cause a vehicle's steering to become hard and labored. Adequate amounts of power steering fluid are necessary to enable a vehicle's power steering system to function and operate at optimum levels. A lack of power steering fluid in a vehicle's power steering system reduces the amount of hydraulic fluid pressure necessary to efficiently operating the various parts of the entire power steering system. Power steering fluid supplies the fluid force needed to operate the power steering gears and to enable power steering gearbox operation. Low power steering fluid levels reduce this hydraulic pressure, which commonly results in hard vehicle steering.

Pump Noise
It is very common for a low power steering fluid level to cause significant power steering pump noise. An adequate amount of power steering fluid is required to ensure the proper function and longevity of a power steering pump unit, which is a belt-driven pump responsible for housing and circulating power steering pump fluid. A low level of power steering fluid results in increased power steering pump friction, heat, and wear, all of which can significantly reduce the operational life of the power steering pump while at the same time cause excessive power steering pump noise.

Fluid Boiling
Many times a low power steering fluid level can result in excessive heating of power steering fluid, a condition that can seriously degrade the fluid and cause it to boil. A low power steering fluid level results in less available fluid to both lubricate and cool a power steering pump unit. A lack of power steering pump lubrication and cooling leads to excessive heat being generated within the power steering pump unit itself, a condition that translates into the available level of power steering fluid becoming super-heated and degraded. When this happens it is common for the power steering fluid to boil and lose all of its lubricating and heat-reducing capabilities.

Gearbox Wear
The power steering gearbox is a set of gears within a vehicle's power steering system designed to facilitate movement of a vehicle's front wheels. The power steering gearbox is connected to the power steering pump by hydraulic fluid lines that deliver a constant supply of power steering fluid to the power steering gearbox. A low power steering fluid level, especially a chronic and severe low power steering fluid level, can lead to increased friction and wear within the power steering gearbox assembly, a condition that can significantly shorten the operational life of the power steering gearbox and negatively affect its operation
