Why does the steering wheel locks when I try to make a left or right turn in my 2002 Lincoln LS? What is wrong when I hear a grinding noise coming from the engine when I try to make a turn?


the grinding noise is from the steering pump going into overload and the pressure relief valve is working. If you have recently worked on the pump or steering check that the hydraulic lines have correctly installed It appears that when turning right the steering is trying to turn left.

Grinding noise when making right turns.


CV joint. Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

Power door locks dont work right


THE ONLY WAY TO FIND AND TRY AND FIX PROBLEM THAT IS YOU'LL HAVE TO REMOVE THE DOOR PANELS THAT ARE MAKING THE GRINDING SOUND, AFTER YOU REMOVE THE PANEL TRY TO OPEN THE WINDOW WITH THE REMOTE AND THIS TIME YOU'LL SEE WHATS MAKING THE GRINDING SOUND...MY GUESS IS THAT THE GLASS COULD BE OF THE TRACK. AND WHEN YOU USE THE REMOTE THE FORCE OF MOTOR AND GLASS CAUSES THE GRINDING SOUND..
GOOD LUCK.

Your gears may be stripped - mine were. Time to get a new shredder

Paper Jam...grinding noise


The print head lock is probably not retracting. Look for the white plastic block that pokes through from the paper feed side just in front of the head. Push it in with your finger and move the head to the middle by hand. Now turn the machine on. Then turn it off using the correct method. Then turn it on once more. If it starts grinding again, you screwed the feed mechanism when tugged out the jammed paper (probably pulled it backward through the feed instead of making it go forward and out the correct exit). If this is the case, you may as well bin it. If it in warranty, you can try to get a claim for repair.

Spin cycle on wash does not work. makes a loud grinding noise. appears that a gear is stripped in motor? Any solution or price to fix?


With the grinding noise, you're right... gearbox issue. Solution: Replace the gearbox. For a service man to come out to fix I'd bet you're looking at $125 minimum.

Grinding noise on startup


Problem The Resume light continues to blink after the paper jam is cleared.
OR
The carriage is stuck or making a grinding noise. Solution 1. Lift the top cover to the printer. 2. Turn the printer off and then on again. 3. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts. 4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct). 5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover. Turn the printer back on! 6. Reconnect the power cord. 7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and then close the top cover

Printer makes noise while cleaning heads


Grinding noise is most likely caused by the carriage lock getting stuck and holding the print head at the home position. The noise is caused by the toothed belt that pulls the head back and forth, skipping over the splines on the motor drive wheel. If you have been able to print since the problem occurred, chances are that it has freed itself up and will be fine. Regarding the loss of cyan & magenta output, follow the solution given in my previous posts to complete a manual under-head cleaning cycle. This should get you going.
