SOURCE: installed rack and power steering pump is good but

To check the pump, squeeze the return line with pliers with the pump running. If the pump is good it will whine when you do this.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leaks

if you take and pressure wash the motor capartment out at a car wash and then have a friend turn your steering wheel back and forth while you look ant the hoses you should see if the hoses have a small leak now never use your hand to check for a leak becuse the power steering systme is a hydralic system and if there is a pin hole and your hand is there the fluid can actually pierce the skin and rip off flesh but you should be able to see the leak just dont grab the hoses while the car is running.
hope this is usefull for you. and please rate my solutions
thank you

SOURCE: steers as if it has no power steering

you will notice the rack and pinion if it is the trouble because when you steer the steering wheel the end play is very big because the specifide end of a steering wheel is only 25mm (+)or (-) 5mm.

then if the end play of the steering wheel go on the rack end pinion and look for other guy who can steer the steering wheel
so you can see the movement of the rack end pinion, one thing once the rack end pinion has a oil leakage i'm sure that the trouble was at that point but if no of what i have mentioned may be the trouble goes to the oil pump, but you can notice if the problem is on the steering pump it will create a noice ,hard to steer and you can see the oil will have a bubbles

SOURCE: my power steering went heavy

hi Jo,the power steering is powered by the fanbelt and if its slipping will cause it to go heavy but a light would come up on the dash to tell you the alternator was not charging.so if not the belt,it could be the electrics for the pwr steering need looking into,this is easier to get on the dealers diagnostic computer which will show up the exact fault.and would save any guesswork.

If it's the electrical motor type of pump, you must connect to a full scale scanner like Lexia 3 to get it reset.

NO "FIX IN A CAN" WILL PERMANENTLY SOLVE A RACK LEAK! MORE THAN LIKELY...IF EITHER END BOOT IS LEAKING...THEY ARE GENERALLY NOT REBUILT (EXCEPT BY O.E.M. SUPPLIERS). YOU ARE MOST LIKELY GOING TO NEED A NEW OR RE-MANUFACTIURED STEERING RACK.....SORRY!

I would drain your power steering pump, even if I had to take it off and dump the fluid! Yes, you do need to use power steering fluid, but what will get you in the most trouble is if you mix your fluids because then they work against each other.

While some people will use transmission fluid in a power steering pump in an emergency, I always recommend they drain it out and use the proper fluid in the proper place.

I changed the battery on my peugeot 407 and now the power steering is not working?


this is becoming a common fault on the 407 you need to unplug the power leads to the mas motor located under the bonnet on the inner wing (its the plug with only 2 thick wires going to it) and check terminals for corrosion. If they are corroded you will need to replace the terminals. If it still does not work then i am afraid you will need a new pump (not a cheap job to do)



let me know if this helps


cheers big mike
