Sharan Squeeking juddering grinding noise steering wheel Steering going?
I don't have the answer,,,my Stratus 2001 just started doing the same thing, only it's more like a popping/cracking sound when steering wheel turned to the far right or left. Took it to repair shop after work today; mechanic drove it and reported that it sounds to him like a spring or bolt is either coming loose inside the column or already has. I have an appt to bring it in to disassemble the steering column this weekend to find the solution to the problem.
You either have no/low power steering fluid in your car, or there is some other problem with the power steering, such as a leak in the tube.

What would cause a grinding or scratching sound when turning the steering wheel in a car that doesn't have power steering?
Check out the bearings in the steering column and the knuckles in the steering shaft
the dealership told me that it is due to the steering column needing to be lubricated
There could be a problem in the steering linkage but most likely, the power steering pump is bad or low in fluid
it is the powering steering pump and or PS fliud leak
many reasons, steering pump, cv joints may be going out, or you could be grinding some plastic that goes around the wheel
Well, im not sure this answers your question, but i own a 1995 dodge stratus and when i turn it made this terrible squeeking. I sprayed down the boot on the ball joint and that solved it. What happened was that the boobt just got twisted and the rubber was squeeking. WD40 works well to spray it.
u need to grease ur rubber bushes in the steering column .
What does it mean when the steering on my 97 aerostar makes a grinding noise when it is turned back and forth?
grinding means the bearings inside steering column are worn out go to a steering column specialist to have them replaced if you leave it to long, you will also need new shaft in column, then the cost will go up by about 400 bucks
Check your power steering fluid level. It may be low.
The steering gear box, probably. If it's power steering, it may be coming from the pump itself. This answer could be one of many things, if the grinding only happens while you are driving. Check to make sure your power steering fluid is full. Mine has a leak and every couple weeks it starts to grind when I turn right.
likely a low power steering fluid problem , caused by a leak , if there is a grinding /whinnying noise at same time it`s probably this or a loose power steering belt
Power steering box... Steering fluid level low,dirty or needs replacing... If power steering fluid is white then your box is damaged...

if u put wider aftermarket tires on then the tires are rubbing on the fender wheel well if you are refering to in/at the actual steering wheel, then some grinding noise is normal. it's possible the electrical contacts for airbag/cruise/radio controls, whatever you have on the steering wheel are making some grinding noise.

Power steering pump/fluid maybe

Power steering fluid is often added and stored directly into the power steering pump. Look for a teardrop-shaped assembly with a filler cap on the top of it somewhere on the driver's side of the vehicle under the hood, near the engine. Then check for evidence of a leak on the underside of that assembly or along the line that runs from it.

Pop the plastic covers off around the steering. you will see a contact that is making the noise, add some grease to the contact. I think it's for power to the horn.

Sort of a weird gurgling/grinding sound >_< like "errrrrr" lol
I have found the grinding noise to be caused by either the power steering pump is low in fluid or a bad power steering pump. If you have a bad habit of turning the steering wheel all the way till you can't turn it anymore it will shorten the life of the pump. The pump is located usually in a convenient place under the hood and should have a knob labeled power steering so you… Read More

Here is the answer to my own question: Took my car in to be repaired and it was a broken clockspring in the steering column.

Cost me $400 including labor.
