Typical Signs of Steering Issues
You don’t have to be a mechanic or weekend garage warrior to keep an eye on your vehicle. Understanding the signs of steering failure can make a huge difference. For instance, catching problems earlier can make the difference between minor repairs and steering parts failing while driving. So, be sure to continuously look out for these common symptoms and bring them in to have us inspect your vehicle.
Noises When Turning
Whining noises are usually heard when you turn the vehicle, it could be a number of things depending on your vehicle, from a failing rack and pinion, worn out tie rod ends, pitman arms, center link, idler arms to a power steering pump belt.
Noises When Turning Vehicle on
Squealing noises come when the vehicle first starts. The squealing noise will come from under the hood of your vehicle and is a sign your power steering pump may be going bad and causing the belt to slip.
Fluids Under Your Vehicle
Get into the habit of periodically taking a look under your car and under the hood before you drive it to see if there are signs of leaking fluids. If the problem is caught early on, hoses, bolts and washers, and gaskets can be replaced for a fraction of the cost while reducing potential damage to major components in your vehicle.
Difficult to Turn
One of the most obvious issues with a power steering pump is when the steering wheel becomes very hard to turn. This is especially noticeable when you are not moving and turn the steering wheel. When power steering pumps start to fail they can also engage and disengage making it difficult to know how you should turn and if the pump is going to work. If you notice any steering problems, call us immediately.
