SOURCE: No Power Steering

the pump may have locked up,try turning it with the belt off,since its off now,which is why the battery light came on and lost power.Anyhow turn it back and forth feel for end shaft play,drain about 1 pint of fluid out by using a turkey baster, and add 1 pint of dot 3 brake fluid to the powersteering fluid,it helps with lubricating the bearings and seals.

While stationery when I turn the steering wheel


you don`t say how high the rpms increase. there is a power steering pressure switch that bumps up idle when the steering wheel turns so the car won`t stall. depending on how much pressure is created determines how much to increase the rpms.

My 1989 cadillac idiles low but once I turn the wheel it cuts off


remove and clean the IAC idle air control it is probably sticking and giving a low idle. or replace it if need be. it should idle at about 7-800 rpms, i think thats why it quits when you turn the wheel. it is putting more stress on the pump and the engine. check idle. Good-day !

My 1996 nissan sentra runs good but when i come to a stop and turn steering wheel the idle drops and stalls a little , almost shuts down . Is there a quick solution ?


sounds like your power steering idle up switch is not working. Rpms should go up when you used your steering. Rhere is a switch built into the power steering system to raise rpms when you are turning steering wheel. It looks like it has a problem.

No Power Steering


Sounds like a belt come off, that drives your alternator & power steering as well.

2001 Cadillac Deville; noise after the engine starts


The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.
