My volvo steering locked up on me while driving can you tell me whats wrong


Hi Sherita

Obviously this could be very dangerous

Pull in to a Volvo dealer & get it checked

There could be a re call of your model if this is a known Volvo problem.
Volvo pride themselves on their Vehicle Safety.
Dealer shouldn't charge for a possible manufacturing problem

Hard steering


The pump may not be working as and is now under stress caused sometimes by the power steering pipes braking down on the inside of the pipe. You will have to replace the pump and check the pipes from the power steering pump.

determine this by looking to see if the coolant line leads to the transmission (bell housing made of aluminum in general) or it leads to the power steering pump (belt driven)

1995 volvo 850 power steering leak at the rack is there a seal that might be replaced?


Not without completely reconditioning the steering rack, no.

In practice, it's always far quicker to fit an exchange steering rack. It costs a bit more than DIY but you're up and running faster, don't need to invest in special tools and you get a warranty on the entire unit.

POWER STEERING AND HIGH FUEL CONSUMPTION


You need to check the the power steering resevior located under the hood, the fluid level may be low, and a possible leak, if low you will need to add some power steering fluid, the fuel consumption maybe in need of a tune-up oil change, spark, plugs, fuel filter, air filter.

Volvo 850 GLT's brakes??


if the pulsating in the steering occurs while braking this is an indications that the rotors are out of round and need to be turned or replaced. if they are causing a pulsating while driving without braking it could be the calipers sticking.

your back brakes will be cooler than the front brakes as the majority of braking is done ith the front brakes even on four wheel disc brakes. hope this helps.

'88 Volvo 740GLE won't get past 30 mph


Horrible squeal. If my 740 made a horrible squeal I would be upset also. These ideas - timing belt has somehow slipped out of time. Easy check. One of the other belts are slowing the engine any of them can squeal: The alternator belt The power steering belt The fan belt. Does the noise occur only when driving? Does the engine sound normal when revving in neutral? Does turning on the lights or a/c affect the noise? Does the power steering work when car is standing? Is the squeal heard when turning the wheels. A logical diagnosis will identify and eliminate these easy to fix problems.
