2004 Galant Power Steering?

My MIL 04 Galant power steering is out and seems to be running on hydrolics. Power steering fluid is at the correct level while the engine is operating.

Any simple trouble shooting suggestions? BTW Not sure but it seems though as if the power steering pump is making some minor noise(clicking).

How to add power steering fluid to 2008 pontiac g6


If you can't find a power steering fluid reservoir under the hood in the engine compartment your G6 could have Electronic Power Steering . If you look up under the dash below the steering column you will see a electric motor mounted to the steering column !
The power steering system reduces the amount of effort needed to steer the vehicle. The system uses the powertrain control module (PCM), body control module (BCM), power steering control module (PSCM), discrete battery voltage supply circuit, steering shaft torque sensor, steering wheel position sensor, power steering motor, driver information center (DIC), and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions. The PSCM and the power steering motor are serviced as an assembly and are serviced separately from the steering column assembly. The steering shaft torque sensor and the steering wheel position sensor are not serviced separately from each other or from the steering column assembly. The steering column assembly does not include the power steering motor and module assembly.

A dashboard light came on with a picture of a pot with a drip and now the steering wheel is difficult to turn. what could the problem be. the car 2002 mitsubishi galant 4 cyclinder se


The light that has come on is indicating a low oil pressure. I don't believe the problem is related to your steering wheel. My recommendation is you check the oil in your engine to verify the level and correct if necessary. As for your power steering issue, again, check the level on the power steering resovoir, and correct if necessary. If the level is low for power steering fluid, top up and SLOWLY turn your wheel all the way from left to right several times. If that does not correct the problem, then I suspect a power steering pump.

I am curious to know, is that light that came on, the only one that illuminated?

2004 VW Beetle power steering fluid


I would use the factory Power steering fluid.  However as long as the fluid is Hydrolic oil G 002 000 you will be fine.  Just take this referance number in and have your local parts store see if they can come up with comprable fluid to the VW power steering fluid

Orange fluid leak (most likely power steering fluid)


Check your hoses around your power steering resevoir, you might have a pin hole leake in one of the hoses. Make sure to keep an eye on the fluid level. As long as you keep fluid in it you won't burn out the pump.

Belts replacement for Mitsubishi gallant (1997)


Is your engine a 4 or 6 cylinder? Air conditioning or no? Either way, a power steering belt at Auto Zone will run you from $7.99 to $12.99. If replacing that does not help, it may be your pump.
HOWEVER, before anything else, PLEASE CHECK THE FLUID LEVEL IN THE POWER STEERING RESERVOIR. It may be low. If so, just add fluid to the correct level.:)
