Chassis / Suspension & Steering Making Noise When turning When cold
Q: when i make a full turn it comes a strange noise like "aoooh" sound..?? it sounds to me that it comes from the stearingwheel but i`m not sure..what can it be..???
A: Sounds like your power steering. Check the power steering fluid and add some if it's low. Be sure to start it up and turn the wheel from side to side several times afterwards to bleed the system of any air. If it's not low on fluid, it may be the power steering pump. In that case, unless you're a DIY-er, you're going to have to take it to the shop. Hope this helps!
Q: Condition started over last three months. Seemed to loose power on hill. Driving on highway it would start running rough. Changed distributor cap, plugs, rotor, air fileter, fuel filter. Condition disappears for 3 days then returned intermittently. Never stalled. Have notice the power loss maybe 10 times.

WONT START, HAVE SPARK. Pulled fuel line, some gas, but leave disconnected and crank no gas spurts. Have trouble getting at fuel pump to check voltage. Is there an interlock? I do get spark but cylinder I checked (#2) is dry. No gas on plug. Changed filter last month.

A: Bang hard on the bottom of the fuel tank while cranking the engine over. If car starts, you need a fuel pump(in tank). This is a "shadetree" diagnosis technique *grin*. Ed
