Ive had these problem on my 2.2 2001 coupe for a while now, no one seems to know what it is, its been services, and mot'd and still the same problem.
The first Problem
This is to do with my suspension
Im sure its the front suspension, but everytime i go over bumps etc, it mega creaks, it sounds horrible. Ive actually recorded a video of the sound, so you should be able to hear it:
The Second Problem
Im sure this has something todo with my power steering pump...
Its been refilled etc, and still doing it, anyway..
If i turn my ignition around, but not so my engine comes on, theres a high pitch whiring/squeal, that sounds like a plane warming up. This just keeps going, and going, and going.. but the sound is altered when i move the steering wheel,and it sounds like the same noise. I think this is somehow effecting my car when im driving, like today:
I was driving along, came to a junction and the revs dropped loads, and i could hear my power steering, and the more i moved it, the more the revs bounced. I put the accelerator down to keep the revs up, but after a bit it stalled..
Anyone got any ideas what these problems could be?
