Q: Car squealing and growling.

asked by on

My car makes a squealing and growling noise.

Hello, From the way you describe you noise, the first thing I would take a look at is the power steering fluid level. If the level is low, there is probably a power steering leak that needs to be repaired. If the fluid is ok, then I would suspect there is a pulley on the engine belt drive that is being noisy. Diagnosing a noisy component on the engine belt drive is dangerous with the engine running. For this to be diagnosed safely I would recommend getting the aid of a mechanic to find the noisy component.
