What would cause a grinding noise every time the steering wheel is turned either left or right - worse in warm weather?
Check the fluid. If it is full, the pump is worn and eventually will fail but it may last a good while longer. Check the fluid level first though.
answer sounds like wheel bearings are wearing out, or the steering column bearings inside the steering colum
If the vehicle is front wheel drive then you may also need to check the right and left side CV joints on the drive shafts..many times the rubber boots covering these joints degrade and crack allowing dirt/moisture to enter the joint and allow the grease to exit,this will cause a grinding noise when turning..If left unchecked the joints will fail and the car becomes undrivable...
There are 2 CV joints on each drive shaft one right behind wheel housing(hub) and one next to the transmission...
CV= (constant velocity)
What does it mean when the steering on my 97 aerostar makes a grinding noise when it is turned back and forth?
You heard a grinding noise when you would turn and you filled up with power steering fluid but you still hear this noise - What could this be?
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…

What is the grinding sound from the front of 1998 Plymouth Breeze that changes when the steering wheel is turned if it is not u-joints?
most likely it is a wheel bearing on its way out. If you turn left and the sound disappears, its most likely either going to be the outer bearing on the left wheel or the inner bearing on the right wheel. Sound disappearing when turning to the right is just the opposite: outer right, inner left. It can be both but not usually.

Is it normal for a dodge charger to make a grinding noise when the wheel is turned all the way even when stopped?
That's your power steering. It does that on all my vehicles. I've never looked into it but I'd say it's normal. It must be a MAX power steering fluid pressure sound or maybe even an intentional warning sound. And yes it makes that sound while stopped as well on my car and truck. Pretty sure it's normal.
