Question about Cars & Trucks
Has fluid, belt is good. Undoubtedly it will be the pump but, it is such a pain to change that I figured I should check other possibilities first. I'm just not sure what they are. Are there particular lines or hoses that are known to clog or crack? I don't see a fuse associated with the ps pump but, maybe I'm wrong. I guess I'm just looking for a way to be sure or test the pump before I dive into this. Any suggestions would be SO appreciated. Thank you. ~Sharon in Hawaii
You most likely have a failed steering gear rack and pinion. Have a local shop confirm this guess as it is quite expensive to replace.

is the fluid circulating well , you could see it through the power steering fuel level after removing the rod , if not then you got proplems with the pump ,if the fluid is circulating the the rack and union pistons may have ruined

You probably do have a power steering leak. Check the fluid again, it's most likely low if you are having an increasing problem with it. As the fluid is drained slowly through the leak it allows air bubbles to enter the system and cause it to become sluggish or sticky. Get the leak fixed asap so you don't spend a huge amount on fluid and keep an eye on the fluid level.

YOU CANT USE A REGULAR FUEL LINE ON POWER STEERING AS A HIGH PRESSURE HOSE.BECAUSE POWER STEERING PRESSURE IS 1000 PSI.YOU HAVE TO BUY THE POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE HOSE IT HAS NUMBER OF PLIES MATERIAL WEAVES TO MAKE IT STRONG.IT WAS MADE FOR POWER STEERING HIGH PRESSURE.YOU DONT HAVE A BLOCKAGE .THE HIGH PRESSURE HOSE JUST WORE OUT.REPLACE IT .IT SHOULD FIX THE PROBLEM.
