check the level of your Power Steering fluid. Also have a mechanic check to see if your power steering pump is working properly.
could be your steering is messed up for the turning. but for the transmission you could have blown piston
A Trailblazer that squeaks only when turning to the left could have a problem with the steering or front wheel bearing. Turning to the left puts the right pressure on the parts to cause them to squeak.
If it is whining when turning, then air may be trapped in the lines. Sometimes filling the reservoir and turning the steering wheel back and forth will bleed the air out. Sometimes not. If bleeding the air out doesn't work then it may be a bad power steering pump. Check the pulley too.
try turning your steering wheel hard either way WHILE turning the key, sometimes the steering wheel locking mechanism interferes. you wont be able to turn your steering wheel like your actually turning, just move it and it should let the key turn
Try jiggling the steering wheel while turning the key. Sometimes if the steering wheel is in a bit of a bind, the key won't turn.
With your foot on the brake , try turning the steering wheel left and right. I know the steering wheel is locked but sometimes this will keep the key from turning. Just pull hard on the wheel hard left and right.
try turning the steering wheel while removing the key. Sometimes the pressure from the steering wheel will hang a key in. it's worth a shot.
Have you tried wiggling the steering column while turning the key? If that helps, you probably need to remove a portion of the plastic cover from your steering column to enable you to lube the column lock. That's the thing that keeps the steering from turning if the key is not turned on. If the column lock jams, it can prevent the key from turning.
Sometimes pressure from the steering wheel lock will keep you from turning the key switch, try wiggling the steering wheel as you attempt to turn the key.
Notchy feel when turning the steering wheel Noise from the pump area when wheels are turned Possible stiffness when turning steering wheel.
I was trying to do it but it does not work... Sometimes the key will not turn when the steering wheel is turned too far. Try turning the steering wheel and key at the same time. Good luck.
Try turning your steering wheel side to side. It sometimes locks up and won't let you turn ur key
Try turning the steering wheel whilst turning the key, most peugeots have a built in steering lock.
power steering fluid not filled?
If your ignition will not turn, try turning the steering wheel slightly while you turn the key. Sometimes the steering wheel will get locked in place and doing this will allow the ignition to move again.
A whining noise present when turning the steering wheel indicates a faulty power steering pump. As the pump fails, it allows air to enter the system and a distinct whine.
Turning to the right, when going forward, you turn the steering wheel towards the right.
Bad wheel bearing if you are referring to a grinding noise. A squeak can be many things. Loose power steering belt for one.
Typically, it may start to make a fairly loud humming noise, especially when turning the steering wheel (a little noise is sometimes normal). It may also 'pulse' when turning the wheel or while driving straight. While turning, steering may intermittently become stiff and then easy. The power steering fluid reservoir may be low (this should be checked regularly and never be allowed to run low). Power steering fluid leaks may be present (check for spots under the vehicle and/or 'wet' power steering lines and components). Also, many shops can help diagnose the problem for little or no cost. Try and find one you trust and take advantage of their expertise.
your question is not very clean on your exact problem. I do know that saturns do have the tendancy to "Lock" the steering wheel to the point you cannot turn the ignition key. to remedy this, move the wheel back and forth with force while turning the key, sometimes the lock pin can get bound up in the steering column and prevent the key from turning.
There are two possibilities when it comes to a squeaking sound when turning. The main reasons are a bad power steering pump, or a steering linkage issue.
try turning your steering wheel side to side slowly as your turning key to unlock steering... it's a theftdeterrent
Anytime I've ever heard a humming noise when turning the steering wheel on any vehicle,It has always been due to low power steering fluid
