Check Power-steering Fluid level and make sure that fluid is good first. If Fluid is good and when you accelerate the vehicle its fine then, you need a POWER STEERING PUMP. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Hard to turn


The steering problem is related to the power steering. Did you check the power steering fluid level? If level is ok, pump may be bad.

Hard starting is not related to steering issue. That needs to be diagnosed for fuel or spark issues. There many reasons for this.

Most likely is a weak power steering pump. This is actually pretty common and the pump is likely to last up to years before needing replaced. Make sure there are no leaks as this will reduce pressure through the system also causing this issue. If the oil in it looks dirty then it might require a flush.

Power steering fails when car is not getting gas.


power steering only works when motor is running. If car is running and you are having this problem it could be as simple as low power steering fluid...have it check...good luck and hope this helps some.

Power steering


Sounds like your pressure needs to be checked for your power steering pump or maybe if that is ok the spool valve seals inside your rack are worn and letting fluid past under pressure.
