Steering noise

Its been doing this for a while. If I am stopped, like in my driveway, and I turn the wheel, a hissing noise starts up. I checked the fluid, its full, maybe too full, but i wouldn't think that would make a difference. I changed the power steering hoses a few months back when one started leaking. But this noise started up about 2 months ago or so and I have just ignored it until now. figured it may become a problem if I dont find out whats up. anybody else have this or have ever had this?

Re: Steering noise

mine does that to. When I turn the steering wheel enough on make the tires move I hear a noise. My buddy heard it to and asked if my power steering was going. It got me wondering if it was the begining of the end for my power steering.

Re: Steering noise

Re: Steering noise

I hear lots of cars and trucks do this. I think its normal...as long as nothing is borken, I'd say your fine. You'll definately know it if the pump goes out.

Re: Steering noise

well on mine it started out wining all the time, now it feels like the pump aint putting out enough flow because once in a while it feels like i have no power steering for about 2 sec. then it catches up and back to wining.

Re: Steering noise

My 2000 does make more noise than it should but a bigger issue is the lack of power it has to turn 35's. Im not sure why but it often feels like I paid extra for manual steering.

Re: Steering noise

Well, you are always going to get a little noise when you are stopped and turn the wheels. I think that's normal. If it sounds really strange or really catches your attention then maybe you have a problem. The only prob I have with my steering is that damn sensor that adjusts the steering for speed. Some of you know what I'm talking about. Mine does that thing where you get in one day and it is normal....and then another time it will be really sensative. Sometimes I'm afraid to sneeze when I'm chuggin' down the road at 80...LOL[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I need to get off my duff and get a new one for it.....someday[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] It actually does not do it much anymore....maybe it fried.

Re: Steering noise

Louder than an 83 diesel? probably not. Are you sure the belt is not slipping?
