The steering links and joints of your car must be checked, before it goes out of control, and cause an
accident. The problem could be a worn out steering link
and joints that needs to be replaced. It could be a case of loose steering system. It could be out anytime. So,
have this checked asap.

It almost sounds like a tire-rub on the inner wheel-well cover, but it also makes this same noise when stationary while turning the wheel to the left.

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with Quadra Trac II makes a thudding noise when I accelerate. When I first start the car rolling and turn the steering wheel, it is very pronounced.

I just put a rebuilt power steering pump on a 2003 taurus 3.0 liter single cam set up. I jacked up the front of the car and had both wheels clearly off the ground and turned the wheel right and left all the way for many time. I had the cap off the pump and when i was turning side to side, i noticed the fluid level rise and overflowed out of the top of the filler neck. Later on i started the car and pump was making noise like it was low on fluid, and i added some and it got quieter. i continued t

My 1995 Buick Lesabre has a low humming noise. It started right after I got my oil changed. It sounds just like the noise a car makes when you don't have any power steering fluid in your car and when you turn the steering wheel, that whining noise it makes? Well that is the sound, but it is not as loud. It don't make the sound when I turn the steering wheel. It is a constant hum while driving, until I get up to about 60. I checked the power steering fluid, It was empty so I filled it up.


I would go back to the oil change place. Fluid levels are their responsibility and you should have a trail of fluid from the leak. If you had no problems before the oil change and immediately after you have problems, then they are the people to tal ... Buick LeSabre
