When I turn the steering wheel any direction it makes a sound. It sounds like something in the column needs to be "oiled". What can this be?
not sure take to your mech.could be a number of things.
Could be the power steering pump is packing it in, and squealing under load. If it's inside the vehicle, it might be that plastic is rubbing when the steering wheel is turned. Have a mechanic check it out.
Have the same thing 2000 C280 with 70,000 miles. Does it only when cold.
if you go the the dealer they will charge you for a 50 $ evaulation. But the feeling that the column is actually jut the 4matic fluid just get a 4matic fluid changes. in simple terms the oil in the speicial diferentials my mercades is worn
check the fluid level for your power steering. Look for a silver canister on the engine near the front, it'll have a black knob on the top to take the top off. Noisy steering is usually due to the power steering pump trying to pump fluid that simply isn't there resulting in a kind of slurping/ scraping sound.
I happen to have a 1995 c280 and my car does exactly the same thing I also work at a Mercedes dealer. I found out that the steering column cover needs to be replaced it happens on quite a few cars....
Hi, I have a 1995 C280, and only in the moring (becuase de engine is cold I gess), I hear a noice, like the valvules when the engine doesn't have oil, also the driving of the machine sounds uneven during a few minutes and after the noise disappears the engine sound flat and the car runs fine, during the day there are not strange noises, only when the machine is cold, does enybudy have any idea?
