It is most likely that there is still some air in the system. It is quite possible to have some debris from the worn pump in the system, the best way to eliminate the metal shavings from a worn pump is to install an inline filter commonly available aftermarket.
When installing the new pump the old fluid might not have been flushed out of the system.The debris in the remaining fluid will cause the new pump to eventually fail. Also the wrong fluid might have been installed after the pump was changed.
Is it early morning or evening when you start up?...Dew? Moisture will make it squeek. Have you had the belts checked? Worn belts can also be the cause of the squeeking. Good luck!
If all the air isn't purged from the system, and if the fluid level is low, the pump will continue to make noise. Also, it may be that one of the idler bearings or accessory bearings are causing the noise, and not the steering pump.
If it is a whining noise, the vehicle is low on steering fluid or the power steering pump may be going bad. If it is a clicking noise, the CV joints may be going bad. NOPE a Saturn vue has electric power steering and no pawer steering pumpA Saturn vue has 4 stabilizer links and they are made of plastic Moog makes metal replacements for the front but the rear still come from the dealer and are plastic they wear out and make noise when you turn replace them and the noise should go away
I had a similar noise and had the idler pulley replaced. Noise still there and mechanic said it was probably the bearings in the pump, probably from overtightening the belt.
Have your steering box inspected by a mechanic.
What will happen if u I added power steering fluid to a leaking power steering pump
most of them are on a recall from gm,, they did mine twice, then it was still there, all they do is pop the steering wheel off and grease down the tube. my noise came back , and after having the powersteering pump take a dump, and i replaced it , wah la , the noise is now gone,,, so i believe the noise has alway's been with the faulty power steering pumps and not the column area...
it makes noies it starts to whine alot when sitting still like it has no fluid in it and after you add fluid it still makes noise or another way is it's hard to turn the steering wheel
i replace power steering pump and it still making noise, what do i need to do next, is there adjustment?
Most likely problem on those vans is still the power steering pump.
"Problems" isn't an adequate description of what's going on. It could be anything from low tire pressure to alignment or even the steering column coupling. To the best of my knowledge, there aren't any mind readers here.
you can still drive the car but its not recommended, its pretty hard on the power steering pump
it may be your steering assist pump: check the liquid level and if it is low, add until it is close to 'MAX'.After having added the power steering liquid, turn your steering wheel all the way to the left,hold it there(you should still hear the whine), then turn it all the way to the right,hold it there and repeat until you won't hear it anymore(2 or three times). PS: the power steering reservoir is not the one near the steering pump,that is the brake liquid reservoir; power steering reservoir is closer to the front of the car and has a bigger cap that says...power steering on it
Power steering fluid is needed to keep the power steering operating correctly. However in an emergency you can still steer the vehicle without power steering fluid, it is just really hard to turn the wheel without the power assist.
power steering fluid will spray out and u will not have any power steering it will steer like u don't have the car started [very hard] but u can still steer the car
Turn on the signal and listen for the clicking noise. If it is still clicking occasionally then you can follow the noise and feel where it is located. If it has totally stopped then look on top of the steering column behind the steering wheel.
I would guess that it is the wheel bearing. is it a grumbling sound or an all out grinding? If it is or was a grumbling sound and has turned into a grinding it is probably the wheel bearing.
the steering will become very very hard.
Yes, but steering will be harder.
I think air in the line will do nothing bu make a horrible noise. If it's hard to turn your car your probably low on power steering fluid, have your fron end greased up and make sure your level with fluid. If its still hard to turn I suggest having someone take a look at the front end
only 2 reasons -- not enough power steering fluid or bad part
Yes, Most Cabriolets do have power steering, but there are a few that don't. In my opinion you dont need it anyway. It is such a light little car. I took my power steering out of my '86 Cabriolet and installed a manual rack, because it was cheaper. The P.S. pump alone runs about $200 and the rack runs about another $150. I bought a new manual rack for $105. It steers very easily even when sitting still.
it could be that your power steering fluid is low or that your power steering pump has gone out. I have the same problem until the fluid warmes up. I believe it's the power steering pump it's seems too small for the car. I have changed the fluid and installed new belts but it's still the same. I believe these cars are JUNK at least mine is. I have had nothing but trouble and now the wiper motor is gone
have you tried removing return line to bleed system ?
ball joints could be bad Did you make sure you got all the air out of the power steering system?
Check to make sure that the fluid is full. With a helper and the vehicle sitting still in park, move the steering wheel fully side to side while one of you listens at the wheels to find the noise.
