I checked my power steering fluid..its good. In the range it should be. Its a really loud squeaking sound when I turn the sterring wheel either right or left. How can I check to see if my PS pump is bad?
I also have a thumping noide under the front of my car? I can feel it in the gas pedal and the passengers can fel it under their feet when they are sitting in the front passenger seat? I can hear it thump thump thump while I drive? What could this be? i was told soemthing about my wheel bearings?
any chance you can have someone turn the wheel? (car off, in park/gear with the ebrake on so they don't run you over..) lie under the front and listen around the steering rack? There have been problems with where the rack bolts go through the subframe drying out, and making noise. also be sure to listen around each tie rod (the parts that come out of the rack that go to the wheels..)
If you don't hear it from under the front of the car w/the car off (which discounts the power steering pump) start listening under the dash, where the steering shaft goes through the firewall
