Right then fellas
cars upto it's tricks again it hasn't stopped for the last 2 weeks..
Got a noise that's doing my head in like that a metal noise or grinding noise.
Been talking to stu about it quite alot and can't fatigue it out or should I say pin point to wat it is...
All I can say is the power steering doesn't work could it be the pump detiriating?..
And now making a noise I'm scared to say the least that it could be engine failure I look at it every night but can't figure it out I've been driving it off boost just in case it is engine as I need the car it's the only car I have running at the minute. If it was bottem end it would rattle/knock bad between 2 and 3.5k wouldn't it? Which it doesn't do the noise is pretty much always there I would say any help would be great cheers

Is the air con still attached and working ok? I had a similar sounding noise before and it was the clutch for the A.C. grinding when engine was running

Why do you think power steering is not working ?
If you fear engine drop the oil at the weekend and see if there is any shiny bits in

Yeah, like johnny said, look for shiny bits in the engine oil if your worried about the engine, if all is good then disconnect the power steering belt and see if the noise stops if you think it may be the power steering pump. Or check the oil in the power steering pot and see if theres any shiny bits in that.

I don't have air con, and i haven't had power steering for a while it just went hard one day.. I've changed the rack and no difference so just been driving to work like that but it's got a noise it's doing my heading the engine has hardly any miles on it it was changed 18 months ago then had a little accident and was off the road for over a year..
And was always started regularly tho also thought chain tensioner but when I took the rocker cover off the chain was nice and tight.

I could be wrong but power steering heldbon full lock the pump or grinding should get louder. As above take the belt off. Water pump ? What's the belts/ pulleys look like when the cars running. Dose the noise level follow the revs up to a certain point

That's right nds Nissan data scan sorry johnny lol. Gave it an oil change and no metal had came out so that most be a gd start as I do more than 100 mile a day in her at the minute so if it was engine knocking I think I should be having a load of metal in the oil by now

They are not the best to tell but a video ? Is the noise there on tick over or only when driving ? Dose it rise ( get louder ) with the revs ? If you drive and dip clutch freewheel etc is it there

yes if you have no power steering at all then the pump isn't pumping fluid around and will dry out the bearings in pump in no time hence the noise.
As Leighton has suggested.......remove the p/s belt (which also runs the water pump) and then see if noise is still there. Could be the pump is now knackered or even the water pump bearings have dried out after long period standing, if noise is still there try removing the alternator drive belt aswell then see if it goes away Wink

I removed my AC but still get a grinding noise every now and then from the PS belt slipping due to a minor oil leak.
