Power steering not working

The car will start fine but the power steering has stopped working. it is really difficult to try and turn the steering wheel at all, plus the battery light is illuminated on the dash board. this has never happened before. could it be steering fluid or something major? can anyone help me?

Electric power steering works intermitantly


'electric power steering'?

Power steering usually works by oil pumped by a manual pump driven from the serpentine belt. Your sounds like the Power Steering oil needs topping up. Make sure you use the correct ATF fluid as there are different types. It will be written on the cap of the Power Steering reservoir.

Power steering out


You could have a leak in the lines connected to your power steering pump, or your pump could have failed all together, or the cables that run the pump could have snapped. Hopefully though you just have low power steering fluid levels and you can just buy some and fill the reservoir back up.

Ford 1993 Taurus steering


Have you checked the power steering fluid level? The reservoir for the fluid will be at the front of the engine, where the belt runs the power steering pump. If it's low or out add a little power steering fluid till full, then start car and slowly turn wheels back and forth from stop to stop-not too ******* the stops (when the steering won't turn further that way...that's what I mean by stops)....Turn wheel one way full travel, then reverse and turn the other way. Check the fluid level again, and add as needed.
If fluid is not low, the belt may be too loose to make the power steering pump work, or you may have a bigger problem that needs professional attewntion.

Water accidently pet in power steering


You need to drain the power steering, it won't be working fine if u don't correct it now. You must remove one of the hoses, start the vehicle while someone watches the flow of fluid, as soon as it stops draining, turn off the car, reconnect the hose, and fill w/ the proper fluid. To get the air out of the lines, (after refilling to cold mark),start car, turn wheels back and forth several times, recheck level, repeat if necessary countrycurt0
