Customer Question
Hello! I have a 2005...
Hello! I have a 2005 Mitsubishi Galant DE 2.4 and recently there has been a noise coming from the engine compartment. It seems to be a similar noise I have seen in vehicles that have had issues with power steering. However, the noise only occurs for a few minutes off of a cold start and eventually goes away after a few minutes. In addition, it doesn't seem like my power steering is actually affected and the noise doesn't seem to get any worse if I turn the wheel. Also, it doesn't look frothy in the reservoir and I don't see bubbles. I am very confused what this sound could be. Most people seem to think it is the power steering and that I should simply change the fluid/top it off. Here is a video of the noise: https://vimeo.com/228605999
