Lost power steering

With no warning nor sound of the power steering nor any fluids under truck, I lost power steering. Does that mean I need a new power steering pump and how hard is it to repair?

Power steering pumps can go out w/ no warning. on your model car you can replace it easily if you are handy and patient. loosen belt and hoses. label hoses, remove pump and replace in reverse. hope this helps

What does it mean when my 2010 camaro has no power steering


2010 Camaro Power Steering Failure

It means the power steering pump is no longer operating and so providing the required power assistance.
You either have a power steering fluid leak in the system and much of the fluid has been lost or the power steering pump itself has failed. You should not try and drive the car when you have this problem because the steering will be far too heavy to drive safely and because if a fluid leak has run the pump nearly dry you will cause damage to the PS pump.

The first thing to do is check the power steering fluid reservoir in the engine compartment. If it is low or empty you have a leak in the system. You can refill the system with new fluid but it will continue to leak until the leak is addressed and you will have to constantly add new PS fluid. In the case of a major leak the car will not be driveable as the PS fluid will be lost very rapidly. Without fluid you will quickly ruin the pump and you will also have no power assistance in your steering.

I have a warning light on the dashboard looks like a tap/ pump, what is it?


Hi there,

If it's this one:

...then it is your OIL PRESSURE WARNING light.

This means your engine is either low on oil, has the wrong oil viscosity in it, or the pressure sensor is faulty.

Power steering gose out after the car has been started restar its good then gose back out


hi this sounds like your pump is going, have you checked the fluid in the reservoir? make sure its is up to the end of the dipstick and is not dirty as it could need new fluid in it, also check for leaks on the pump, either look under where the motor is and locate the pump, check to see if there are any drips of pink fluid leaking this could cause air to get into the system and make the steering do what you are having problems with,you can also get a large section of cardboard put under the motor area and then start the engine wait for 10 minuets and see how much is lost if any...hope this helps

When driven about 10 miles, makes a noise similar to a power steering pump going out, but only when it heats up, power steering fluid is full. Why would it only make the noise when engine is hot?


The Power Steering Pump has a Fluid Cooler, a small radiator located on the bottom of the Van. It is used to cool the power steering fluid off. If there is a blockage problem this will cause overheating.
Although there is fluid, when was the fluid last changed? Then was the last time this entire System was flushed?
However, the Power Steering Pump making noise only when heated is a definite beginning sign that Power Steering Pump Bearings are failing. When these fail, they do so without too much warning, meaning Noise and then failure immediately after!
Before you run out and buy a new Power Steerin Pump, make sure it is in fact the Pump and not the nearby Pulley's or Pump's. Some people rush to judgement and change out the Pump when the nearby pulley bearing was the real culprit.
Let me know if this helped. or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Both my power steering and brakes stopped working at the same time. I can still brake my truck, but only if I press har5d with both feet. There is no fluid leeking, and both the power steering and brake...


It would sound like you have lost a serpentine belt. Do you have a braking system that is boosted by the power steering pump? While it is possible for a pump to fail it is rather unusual to do so suddenly. Unless the systems have something in common (like the power steering fluid) it is highly unlikely both systems would fail for no reason simultaneously. Did any other warning lights or an alternator gauge or temperature gauge give you any indications of a problem?

Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.

No power steering when engine is on.


Is there a large puddle under your vehicle? Your car's power steering is powered by power steering fluid and the belt turning this pump. So either you ran out of fluid due to a slow leak, the belt is not turning the pump, or you have a large leak and you lost all of your fluid at one time. It would be a good start by checking the power steering fluid, and the belt.
