That Squeal is Telling You Something (What Causes Squealing While Steering)

Posted May 23, 2021 12:30 PM

If you hear a squealing noise when you turn your vehicle, it's trying to tell you something is wrong.  After all, it never made that noise before, right?  The sound  you hear may becoming from a few sources.  Let's take a look (or a listen) to some of the possibilities.

First, you almost certainly have power steering in your vehicle. Without power steering, you practically have to have arms like Arnold Schwarzenegger to turn, so automakers have technology to assist your steering, either mechanically or electrically.  For a long time, the most common power steering has been hydraulic, using a belt to supply power from the engine that turns a power steering pump full of a fluid that helps you steer. 

Sometimes that fluid gets low because of a leak or some other problem.  The belt could wear out and start squeaking, and you might feel the steering start to become harder.  Your service repair facility can figure out the problem and offer some solutions.

Another cause could be in your suspension.  Some components may not be getting lubricated like they should.  Or you may be hearing your tires squealing when you are turning. 

Properly working steering is a huge safety factor for your vehicle's operation.  Your steering affects handling, vital to your well-being as well as that of drivers around you.  So take your vehicle over to your repair facility and have it checked out.  You'll be doing everyone on the road—including yourself—a big favor by listening to your vehicle. When it comes to steering, silence really is golden.  Get that squealing repaired and get back to safe driving.

Wheel bearing...how could one part cause so much noise, my ears were ringing. A.G Automotive found the issue quickly and charged a fair price. I am happy to have found them. My Focus ST is happy too.

Came in to get oil changes for both mine and my wife?s car and had an electrical problem looked at on my wife?s car! They got us in early, got my car out fast and took care of all of the problems on my wife?s car by the next day! All in all they were great at AG auto ! Plus they recommended a great smog check guy !

The shop was very accommodating and got me in for the afternoon wheel alignment as a walk-in customer. Prices were reasonable and no nickle and diming me on service. What they quoted on the verbal estimate was honored and their follow-up after care was very impressive. The owner actually reads the reviews and was very responsive to my minor concern regarding the alignment printout. He immediately replied with apologizing for not having that attached to my receipt and quickly sent me my copy they had on record. He also awarded me a FREE oil change for my concern. I will definitely return for care at this shop.
