Steering noisy and stiff

I have a 1987 landrover 90, and recently i have had a 200tdi engine out of a disco, fitted into my 90. and since the engine has been fitted the steering is noisy and stiff. especially on pull off. and sometimes when i turn the steering the fan belt squeals.i thought it could be my steering box but it was fine before the engine was fitted. and i was going to put a 200tdi disco steering box on it but all the arms are different.

the steering lines fittings are different sizes it could be the sensor however make sure all the air is bleed out of the system first. to do this with the engine running turn the steering wheel full left and full right until you hear no noise then check the steering fluid level and repeat as needed.

How do i fit a towbar to a landrover discovery 2


towbar on a disco 2 is a straight forward bolt on job it attaches to the rear chassis and crossmember any good quality towbar kit will come with all bolts and washers you need plus instructions . if you get genuine landrover electrics they plug straight in without having to cut or join any wires.

hope this helps

Power steering stiff


If the steering is noisy as well as stiff then the steering fluid is low. If it is not noisy then the fault is most likely the pressure control valve inside the power steering pump sticking open. The Pump would need need to be re-conditioned. Also check steering rack boots are not twisted as well as tyre pressures.

98 disco 300tdi with rear wheel bearing problems


I would just replace the bearings, They're not that expensive and they're quite easy to replace. After replacement, if it happens again on the same wheel, you probably have a bent semi-axel. I had this exact problem on a '93 200tdi disco.

Stiff power steering on Pontiac 6000, 1989.


Hi Dale,

At the risk of sounding, well skip that.

The first two things to check when the steering gets stiff are the belts and the Power steering fluid level.

The belts should be checked for tension and wear.

If the fluid in the pump was allowed to get low and was recently filled, there may be air in the system.

Bleed it out like this:
  1. Start the engine
  2. Slowly turn the wheel back and forth .
  3. Bring it almost to the stops, then back the other way
  4. Repeat 4 - 5 times
  5. Check the Power Steering Fluid level - fill to the line if needed
  6. If more was added, go back to step one and repeat the procedure.
  7. Take it for a test drive
  8. Check the levels one more time
Hope you find this to be Very Helpful

96 landrover disco power steering pump bracket broken off


Really stupid question but did you get the correct belt and did you adjust the belt tensioner? On vehicles with spring type tensioner it must be pried back and then released. Slide type tensioners are usually either part of the pump bracket or alternator bracket assembly.
