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.

Leaking power steering fluid out of filler neck


You must check the fluid level for overfill.... preferably with cold fluid (about 3 hours of no driving, or better, overnight) and see if the level is higher than the "cold level" mark. If you recently add fluid (and the reservoir was empty) you must purge air from the system (frequently this is made with preferably cold fluid, turning the steering wheel stop-to-stop, side-to-side, about 2 times). If the steering fluid is high, drain it to obtain the normal level and then do the purge sequence. Hope it helps.

Power steering is not working so I checked the fluid and it was empty I filled it and when i turned the wheel to test it the fluid drain completely


There must be a leak in the system somewhere if it drains out that fast it should be pretty easy to find. usually a hose that is split or blown out, or a connection at the pump or rack.

My power steering resevoir was empty. I noticed it because my steering was suddenly stiff this morning. Nothing in my manual said anything about a particular type of PS fluid so I went to Walmart and...


You will have to look where it is leaking from and get it fixed. Running without power steering fluid will eventually burn you power steering pump out and yes if you power steering is that hard to turn when out of fliud, it is dangerous.

Burning smell and smoke comming from vent,then hard to steer


Wild guess here... pin hole leak in power steering line leaked fluid on to exhaust manifold. Drained fluid caused power steering to go out. Replace power steering hydraulic line.

Suddenly leaking power steering fluid, reservoir empty


The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.
