Power steering trouble

I have a 1991 Ford f150 4x4 with a 351. When attempting to turn right it feels like there is no power steering. Turning left there is no problem.

This is caused by the power steering pump, the only way to correct it is to flush the power steering system and replace the pump

try lucas power steering stop-leak. drain some of the fuild and then pour that in. it is for surging rack & pinions, not just for leaks. if that doesn't work then you may have a defective rebuilt rack.
check power steering pump pressure, might be weak.

How does the hydro boost fell "funny" - does the brake pedal go to the floor? Do the brakes lock up? engage immediatly? Does the brake light stay on, come on while brakes are applied? Have a diagnostics test done on it at a local auto parts store (usually a free service; stores may vary) and see if any codes show up. If so, the person submitting the test can tell you what the code(s) mean, and what to do to fix the problem.

1991 triton has very tight steering when turning


first check whether you do have a belt on the power steering pum p and is either loose or damaged and went off. If there bis a belt and is tight then do a test to confirm whether the power steering pump is working or not. Start the car and turn full lock to left or right an listen whether you receive any pressure sound like a squeak noise. If yes then there is no fault, if not the the power steering pump is faulty and either you have to recondition it or replace it.

1991 1.8 Fox Steering unusually stiff and squeek when wheel is turned. Alignment was adjusted today but the problem persists


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

The problem can be on the power steering pump itself. If the power steering pump is faulty, the power steering fluid does not circulate properly. One good reason why it squeaks when wheel is turned. Check the power steering belt too if they are not sloppy. If it is, adjust the pump to tighten the belt.

But before doing the power steering pump replacement, please do check the power steering fluid level. You may need to fill it up a little and turn the wheel from left to right. By turning the wheel to the max left and max right, the steering fluid will circulate and may get rid of the problem.

If the problem still persists after putting on new fluids, go for the power steering pump replacement. Be sure to tighten the power steering belt after replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Vibration in the wheels when turning left or right


Check to see if the steering sector is about to fall off,and the power steering pump.If all that is secure,check the mounts on the trans,and the transfer case.If the mounts are broken,or weak,this would allow the vibration,when turning.Let me know if I can help any more.roniecon@gmail.com
