    Power Steering Noisy

    Hi,

    Before I had an Astra G 1.7DTi and didnt experience the problem I am mentioning below.

    I now have an Astra G Sport version with an X18XE engine and I can hear the power steering alot (with the window open). Every person that comes having a look at it says this of the steering... like.... what is this noise? I guessed because of the low levels of noise that this engine makes compared to diesel. Is this normal?

    Thank You

    What year is your car?
    There will be a slight noise from your power steering pump, you might not hear it if the surroundings are noisy.
    I believe the earlier pump are meant to be louder than the newer ones.

    Have you checked the power steering fluid level.
    You might find it is low, hence the noise.

    I have the same car, same year etc & I had the same noise.
    Topped the fluid up & the noise went away.
