This is my son's car, so I'm not sure how long this problems has been developing, but he brought his car to me and asked me to listen to the screechy sound that happens when he turns the steering wheel back and forth. To me, it sounds like a rubber belt of some kind, because it's a twisty, screechy sound like twisting a balloon. But I don't know anything about the steering system on a Taurus, so I don't have a clue if there are even belts involved. Online forums say anything from ball joints that need grease, to the rack and pinion is going, to struts. Can you give me a definitive diagnosis and tell me if it's diy job?
have the same problem?
