I have a 2007 2-door hatchback Focus. Since about September 08 the power steering pump has been making noises. I know is the power steering pump because the noise gets louder when I turn the wheel. I keep taking the car to the dealer and they keep replacing different parts: o-ring seal or power steering pump, but the noise keeps coming back. There are bubbles in the power steering fluid that appear when the noise appears. Finally, this February 2010, the noises came back with a vengeance. They g

Whining Noise I have a whining noise, especially upon acceleration up a hill, in my Santa Fe. The noise is coming from underneath the hood, on passenger side. The dealership has already replaced the fuel pump once, and the power steering pump twice and last time they realized the line was clogged (I think to the fuel pump) and they flushed it out. Each time the problem is fixed for about one month. Now it is back and I am frustrated!


Sure sounds like a power steering pump, if they did not flush the grim out of the system from the old pump before they replaced the pump the new pump will fail in short order. ... 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited

Mazda 2002 MPV Mini Van: Drive pulley fell off the shaft of the power steering pump. Threaded shaft lost its nut and pulley slid from shaft.

I have a 2004 Accord with 65k miles. It begun a few months with a noise when the car was cold and I turned the stering wheel, but now, when I turn the wheel, it makes the noise, and the wheel shifts from hard to soft.

1995 Grand am power steering pump was ran without fluid for a day or two. Refilled with fluid. It now has a lot of air bubbles in the fluid and makes a fairly loud wine or growling noise when you turn the steering wheel. Does that mean the pump is bad.

I have a honda accord 1993.

Power Steering needs topping up daily & there's oil dripping to the floor, also the rack boot needs replacing. As we don't have $2'000 for a garage to "fix" the power steering problem, How hard is it to remove the power steering pump, hoses, rack & steering? & replace with a manual steering rack & steering? Do we need any extra special tools, or can a couple of back-yarders do this replacement?


If you are up to it, you can remove the Rack and Pinion and have it rebuilt. Most of the time the rebuild kits can be purchased locally, but I recommend you have it rebuilt by a professional. I usually just buy new Rack and Pinions and get the old on ... 1984 Subaru Brat

2002 Mercury Sable 6 Cyl. 3.0 - Another question about the power steering pump. When I start up the car, the power steering fluid drains down and when I turn the car off the power steering fluid comes back to its prior level. The rack was leaking so I replaced the rack so that was part of the earlier problem I had with fluid leaking out the top of the pump. My question is now: I'd like to know how to check the power steering pump itself and also I looked for a filter in the return line
