2002 buick regal gs hard to turn at slow speeds and makes whining noise when driving


Most likely the steering rack is failing & you hear
the power steering pump straining

Happens when you don't change the fluid every 3 years

Also the top strut bearings could be worn & causing the
stiffness also (two problems)

Why is there tension on my steering wheel when i try an turn my 2002 zx2 for escort


If it became stiff over time, the most reasonable thing to assume is a problem with the Power Steering System: Check the fluid level, if that's fine then the power steering pump may be failing. Before you waste your money on a garage repair, try flushing your old power steering fluid by removing the bottom hose to drain the fluid or use a pressure evacuator to remove it, then put the hose back on and refill it with your engine running in order to turn the pump and run the fliud through. If all else fails, replace the pump.
If your steering become stiff for just a moment while your driving, your pump can be failing just like above. Have it inspected before your replace it.

My 2002 Chevy Malibu sometimes shifts very slow. I will go from park to drive and there is about a 3 second delay.


I would first check the fluid level. If it is a little low it could cause the slow shift. I would also recommend putting in a can of TRANS X. It will clean up the valves inside of the tranny. I did this with my 2001 malibu and never had trouble again. I have 290,000 miles on it!

Hi,
Your Malibu has Electronic assist steering.
Some malfunction occurred when the light came on.
May have been a loose connection. You will be able to steer the car if the malfunction re-appears. It will steer hard standing still but as you move it will get easier.
Best to take it to a shop and see if there are any codes stored to help locate the original power steering light malfunction.

Where do i add power steering fluid to a 2005 chevy malibu


There is no power steering fluid in the system.A 2005 Malibu is electronic steering.If you lose assist you may have to replace the steering column.You may also have an intermediate shaft that is binding.The I-shaft connects your steering column to the steering gear.There is a universal joint in the shaft that may be stiff or seized.

Massive Power steering fluid leakage


You have blown a power steering hose. You'll have to drive it to somewhere to fix it if you can't do it. It shouldn't hurt the pump to drive it for a few minutes, but it's going to be stiff.
