I have the same car and don't get bent at this answer .... but if you bought it used and don't know the full extent of the car check the computer and change the steering to low or normal effort ... High effort is harder than my z28 used to be ... and going around entrance/exit ramps you really have to put some effort into it ...

Power steering fluid leak somewhere behind right front tire, but can't locate the source.


Add power steering fluid, have some one start engine, and turn wheel as far as it will go, that will put pressure on power steering pump, now you can look for the leak, while it's under pressure, good luck.Hope this was very helpful.

I changed engines in my 98 continental and now the power steering doesn't work. It isn't leaking and the hose isn't pinched. I checked the belts and I still can't figure it out. It was working just fine...


You may have air in the system. Start the car and move the steering wheel back and forth and keep checking the P/S fluid level while the car is running. Keep adding fluid when it's low. Keep turning the steering wheel back and forth and sooner or later the P/S system will start working again.

Very hard to steer wheel in my 2003 gmc yukon and there is plenty of steering fuid in it


Turn car off - Remove power steering cap, and turn streering wheel hard right or left and fluid should pour out (cover surroundings with rags.) If so, check your power steering pump.

Sounds like you got a bad pump if it's full of fluid.

1992 Lincoln continental steering problem


your inner tie rod end either broke at the ball joint or it was not installed properly and came loose from the steering rack. Either way there should have been an issue with the steering prior to the popping noise. If there is power steering fluid there had to be damage to the rack and pinion unit and it will have to be replaced.

This is caused by the voltage to the power steering module being too low. That is causing the power steering to dis-engage. You should have your charging system check. You probably have a bad battery or a bad alternator.
Some auto parts stores and Sears will do it for no cost.

You added too much fluid. You should reduce it too the proper level. You can dip it out.
I have posted the solution to your hard steering problem in your other posts.

Hard steering


Check the Serpentine belt. If it's loose, not only will the power steering be very difficult but it will tend to run hot and eventually overheat. The belt may be worn and slipping as well. If this isn't the issue, you may have a leak coming from the power steering hose (you had to add fluid). Have someone in the car turning the wheel while you watch under the hood watching the power steering pump. With the fluid full, you should immediately see any leaks right away while the wheel is being turned. Hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck to you!
