SOURCE: power steering gear box leaking at steering column to gear box

I just found 1 of my power steering leaks in my 1990 toy pickup. My high pressure line has a hole in it. I used a florecent die kit to locate the leak. You can get it at Autozone.

SOURCE: vacuum leak at base of steering column the part is half moon shaped and white what is it called

Run the vehicle at idle and turn off engine. Step on the brakes with the engine off and listen for vacuum leak. If you hear hissing with the brake pedal depressed it's the Brake vacuum booster......In the same area there is a parking brake vacuum release switch which leaks only with the car is in idle. If this is leaking your automatic parking brake will not release your parking brake automatically in drive.

SOURCE: Have a 1999 Silverado 4x4 Ext. cab. Power steering

If your steering is easier above idle the problem is the pump.

Why do I have bad vibration in my 06 impala?


Could be a vacuum leak. Buy a cheap vacuum gage and attach the hose to manifold vacuum port. Must be manifold vacuum not carb or anywhere else. The gage will tell you if you have vacuum leak. Then you will have to track down the source. Other issue might be starving for fuel but OK in park so maybe not. Good luck

Speed control not working on 1994 Mercury sable wagon


Two things to look for are a vacuum leak and/or an electrical fault. The engagement switch on the steering column is the first place to check. You can use a test light or a voltmeter to verify voltage is getting to the control electrical connector under the hood. The diaphragm in the controller may have started to leak or a vacuum hose may not be applying full force to the diaphragm because of a leak.

1988 merc grand marquis, vacuum diapram, symptoms? any gear i put it into, i hear a vacuum like sound, is this it?


The 1988 merc has an automatic emergency brake release that has a valve on the steering column under the dash, when you put the tranny in gear it sends vacuum to the valve on the brake to release it. It could be the valve on the steering column that is the problem. Good luck!

My crus control stopped working. On my 2001 dodge RAM 2500 deisel


i have dealt with that issue before. check the wiring in your steering column. my buddy had a truck and had that happen and we pulled the steering wheel off and a wire was wrapped around the column.
or,it could be a leaking vacuum hose at speed control servo due to battery acid on the servo hose. its a common problem with rams.
