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 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.
it could be your power steering pump. check your fluid level, then also check to see your not leaking any fluid.
There could be a problem in the steering linkage but most likely, the power steering pump is bad or low in fluid
power steering fluid not filled?
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.
Power steering box... Steering fluid level low,dirty or needs replacing... If power steering fluid is white then your box is damaged...
The fluid is over filled.
I have a 1999 Ford Explorer and I was told about a grinding noise before I bought it. He told me that it was because it needs a new wheel baring. * If the vehicle is standing in place and the wheel is turned and there is a noise it could mean you need to add power steering fluid to the unit.
Check your power steering fluid level. It may be low.
Sort of a weird gurgling/grinding sound >_< like "errrrrr" lol
You have a buick lesabre custom 98 the steering is going and its not the steering fluid what could it be?
If you have plenty of fluid it could be the power steering pump itself going bad or it could be the rack and pinion assembly.
Grinding noise from front wheel also clunking noise when turning steering wheel of Renault laguna 2002?
soounds like steering wheel fluid needs to up
your pump could be low on power steering fluid, your power steering belt could have came off if equiped with a separate belt and finally the pump could have failed from low fluid, or dirty fluid
I was just told by an auto repair man that my 2002 olds alero's power steering fluid can only be accessed and therefor filled by the dealer because of a special tool needed to open the compartment. Diffrent answer: i just filled my wifes 02 alero with standard steering fluid and it works fine. nothing blew up.
Your 95 camaro z28 is making like a grinding almost noise when im turning the steering wheel anyone have ideas whats wrong?
Power steering pump/fluid maybe
In the trunk. The power steering fluid reservoir should instead be filled with Mopar ATF+3 or equivalent meeting the +3 standard.
Try checking the power steering fluid. My taurus did the same thing until i filled the power steering fluid.
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

Synthetic power steering fluid from the dealer only. Do NOT mix drugstore power steering fluid, ATF, or non-synthetic fluid in your steering system. Damage to the seals/gaskets could result in leaks.
I'm no mechanic, but it sounds like you are low on power steering fluid, check it out...
There could be many causes to a car leaking power steering fluid. There could be a hole in the reservoir, or the seals could be worn or broken.
It could be. Some cars use auto trans fluid in the power steering system.
Why does the power steering fluid overflow the reservior when engine is running on a 1999 acura 3.2tl?
If it was low recently and you filled it, it could be air in the system. The overflow can also result when pressure in the tank is too high. This is often the result of a faulty power steering pump.
Polaris rangers do not have any steering fluid. You could grease the steering shaft while you're in there though.

A grinding noise occurs when I turn the steering wheel of my 98 Corolla when it's parked or driving. I changed the fluid recently and the noise went away but now it's back. What is making the noise?
There's a small leak in a hose that carries the power steering fluid.
It could be low Power Steering Fluid. You should refill it with the proper fluid as recommended by the manual.
Could be your steering fluid is low? My 1982 GMC pickup truck makes a noise when my steering wheel fluid gets low.
The fluid could be leaking from the pump, hoses, or steering rack. Wash the steering system, then you can see where the leak is coming from.
Check the power steering fluid to see if it needs to be filled. If not, then you may need a new power steering pump.
Is the power-steering pump going bad on a 1999 Chevy Mailbu when it makes a grinding noise as you turn the wheel?
Yes, it may also need power steering fluid. You need someone that is a shade tree mechanic to check it out. Yes, it may also need power steering fluid. You need someone that is a shade tree mechanic to check it out.
There is no connection from the power steering system and the engine systems. The only conceivable way that power steering fluid would be coming out of an exhaust system is to have power steering fluid poured into the fuel line. Transmission fluid could be coming through a vacuum line. This may appear to be similar to power steering fluid.
Check the fluid reservoir. If the fluid level is low, you have a leak in the powering steering system. The problem could be a damaged steering rack. You will need to replace the entire steering rack.
This is two of the things I know that could be wrong. The power steering pump is either bad or there is no power steering fluid in the pump causing it to have steering problems. Be sure to check the fluid level in the power steering pump.
Is the power steering pump going bad on a 1999 Chevy Mailbu when it makes a grinding noise as you turn the wheel?
A LOW FLUID LEVEL WILL CAUSE PUMP TO WHINE IF FULL AND IT WHINES THE PUMP vanes are scored and you need to change pump if the fluid is all foamed up you could have a hose or seal that is sucking air into pump
you could use regular transmission fluid.
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
No, I would use regular power steering fluid in it, these newer cars aren't like the old cars where you could use tranny fluid in the power steering.
Using the wrong power steering fluid on a mini can cause all kinds of problems. The car might steer differently, or the fluid could leak or damage the steering rack and pump.
If you do not keep your power steering fluid topped off, and/or do not change it once a year, your steering column will most likely start burning from friction of the steering rod and column. The best thing you could do is take it to a mechanic, to see how much damage you've done by not topping off your steering fluid. This is something explained in every owner's manual, but not often read. This is… Read More
If your steering wheel is hard to turn, and you have checked to see that the belt is tight, and that you have steering fluid, the problem could be your pump. It might also be the compressor.
The obvious: It will become very hard to steer. The not so obvious: The power steering pump is lubricated with power steering fluid, and driving it dry could damage the pump.
1992 Olds 98's steering makes a terrible grinding sound when you back out of the driveway and it only grinds in reverse gear any ideas what's wrong?
try removing some power steering fluid (use a gravy baster or siphon) and add new fluid. repeat after a couple of days
What could be the problem with a 1999 Sun-fire power steering system when fluid and lines are fine but power steering is out?
it could be the rack and pinion
The power steering fluid might be low. Add some power steering fluid to see if that helps. The power steering fluid chamber is under the hood. It might also be the belt that drives the power steering pump. There are products to lubricate belts and quiet them down. These are available, as is the power steering fluid, from a good auto supply store. Or you could have a shop top off your fluid and put… Read More
What other reasons could cause a squeaky steering wheel when you turn wheel no airbag warning lights or any lights go on for that matter?
it sounds like your power steering fluid is low,,,,, or your power steering pump is leaking (which means it needs to be replaced)... I hope it turns out to be low steering fluid. If the power steering fluid is low, you can have someone add fluid, but keep and eye on whether or not that fluid level is dropping or leaking. Good luck to you.
Check the steering fluid reservoir - it will probably need topping up - MAKE SURE YOU USE THE CORRECT TYPE
