Engine running ask someone to turn steering wheel for you . Look for power steering hose move like there is pressure. and noise from power steering pump . if not change power steering pump
You don't really need power assistance when moving on the road ... where you need it more specially in parking or not really moving
hope it helps
Most vehicles have a "clock spring" behind the horn button area on the steering wheel.
The clock spring has nothing to do with clocks and inst really a spring. It's a flat coil of wiring that is would around in a circle and connected to a stationary item in the middle of the steering column. The outer end of the coil is allowed to move around (coil and uncoil) as the steering wheel is turned.
The clock spring typically supplies power to the horn and to the airbag.
This is a relatively simple fix, but unless you have mechanical experience, this is a repair I would leave to a mechanic. Pulling the steering wheel and the airbag can possibly lead to airbag deployment and injure or kill you.
YOU HAVE AIR IN THE POWER STEERING SYSTEM.YOU NEED TO BLEED POWER STEERING PUMP FIRST BEFORE DRIVING VECHICLE.CHECK POWER STEERING FLUID LEVEL ADD MORE POWER STEERING UNTIL REACH FULL COLD MARK..RAISE VECHICLE FRONT WHEELS OFF THE GROUND.START ENGINE LET IT IDLE WHILE TURNING STEERING WHEEL LEFT TO RIGHT NON STOP DONT LOCK OR STOP STEERING WHEEL KEEP TURNING IT SEVERAL TIMES CHECK POWER STEERING FLUID IF LOW ADD UNTIL YOU GET COLD MARK ON DIP STICK DONT OVER FILL POWER STEERING PUMP BLOW A SEAL.IF POWER STEERING FLUID LOOK TAN COLOR SYSTEM FULL OF AIR.TURN OFF IGNITION LET CAR SET FOR A WHILE CHECK FLUID LEVEL.IF STEERING WHEEL FEEL STIFF HARD TURNING DONT DRIVE CAR UNTIL YOU HAVE NORMAL STEERING.IF STILL HAVE AIR IN SYSTEM BLEED SYSTEM UNTIL AIR IS OUT.
Check to see if your leaking any power steering fluid. If theres no fluid leak from your car then the problem is the power steering pump needs to be replaced. The job is not too hard, If you need some tips to replacing the pump just write me back.
i get a sort of grating squeal coming right front wheel when turning right. i've checked the wheel bearings and there ok. it only seems to happen when moving above 15 mph. any idea's what this could be?
Intermittent hard power steering, at the begining of the turn of the steering wheel, once disturbed past the hard part, works normal.
Had fluid change, I notice a sensor, on the control block tower of the rack, is this at fault ? thanks buckleyeng.
