What to do with power steering pump noise for a 1999 Grand Am?

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.

How does hydraulic steering work?

Firstly you need reservoir for hydraulic oil from there goes one line to inlet port of hydraulic pump (which is driven by a engine or electric motor) then the high pressure port from hydraulic pump goes to hydraulic steering orbitrol, which is connected by a shaft to a steering wheel and has usually 4 ports. One port is connected to a pressure port from hydraulic pump (high pressure). Second port is return line to a reservoir (lower pressure). The other two ports are lines that goes to a hydraulic steering cylinder (which delivers the turning force to steering wheels). Operation: When the hydraulic pump is running and has pressure on outlet port the hydraulic oil flows through hydraulic steering orbitrol and back to reservoir. And when you apply turns to a steering wheel the hydraulic steering orbitrol redirects specific amount of hydraulic pressure to a hydraulic steering cylinder and there you have a turning force. -_- max

How do you change power steering pump in Peugeot 306 TD year 96?

Release the drive belt tension and remove the drive belt from the pump. Clamp the reservoir hoses or empty reservoir and disconnect hoses from the reservoir. It may give better access if you remove the pulley from the pump. Unscrew the 4 bolts holding the pump to the bracket. Once refitted bleeding is done by turning the steering from lock to lock until no more bubbles in the reservoir, engine running to do this.

How do you remove air from a power steering line?

Generally they self bleed by starting the engine, turning the steering wheel from stop to stop then shut off engine and allow the bubbles to come to top of reservoir. Do this a few times and you should be good to go.

What would cause car to sqeak when going over bumps and tuning steering wheel?

Any bushing, if its worn or old enough, causes suspension squeaking at low speeds and when going over bumps. The typical cause of squeaking noises when turning the steering wheel is low power steering fluid. The power steering fluid reservoir should be checked and the fluid topped off if it is low. Fill your reservoir with manufacturer-specified fluid (or have your oil-change service station do it). With a very low fluid level, the whining sound will be accompanied by a difficulty in turning the wheel.

Check the steering fluid reservoir - it will probably need topping up - MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT TYPE

When i start my Honda EU1 civic the car stalls when turning the steering wheel?

There is an issue with your electrical power steering (EPS) hydraulic fluid pump. You need to check the condition of the belt (on both pulleys) as it's being driven by the engine. If you REV the engine, while turning the steering wheel, do you feel a significant amount of resistance? You may have to check both valves in the hydraulic lines as well. PS: I assume that you have sufficient amount of (clean) power steering fluid in the reservoir already.

Whining noise when turning steering wheel?

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.

How can you tell if you have a problem with your power steering pump?

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.
