WHY DOES MY CAR SQUEAL WHEN i AM BACKING UP?

Asked by Sep 28, 2015 at 11:36 AM about the 2000 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

as I am backing out of a parking space and cutting the steering wheel tight it squeals terrible, Doesn't do this with normal driving. Sounds like something needs grease bad.  I can't afford a major repair job at this time. Wondering is there is something I can do?

Usually the noise is from the tie-rod ends, your vehicle should have sealed boots, so no fittings to lube/grease. So replacement is your only option.
