SOURCE: Power steering is stiff at tight left turn.

You need to look to your power steering system. First check your power steering reseivor for proper amount of fluid. If you can see the fluid when you open the reseivor, there's enough fluid..
Next, check deflection in the power steering belt. Should be no more than a 1/2 inch of movement in the center of belt. Be sure the engine is off.

If all this is ok, problem can be in the power steering rack and pinion unit. These can not be repaired, only replaced.
One last check. With engine running, have someone slowly rotate the steering wheel completely from side to side while you watch the wheels to determine if they are traveling through a complete turn. If not, this can also be a problem with rack and pinion.

SOURCE: Transmission slips full turns & quick stops

Have you checked the fluid? It sounds like its low. If its fine, change the filter.

SOURCE: 1997 Lincoln Town Car; left turn stiff

Could be an air lock in the system.Leave the engine running with the fluid cap off and turn the steering from lock to lock several times .

Power steering stiff and jumpy...when the weel is turned hard either way the engine belts actually slip and the alternator stops charging. Is my power steering pump burned out ?


I would change the belt first. Power steering is required for all turning but does get a little more usage during hard turns. You will want to check the fluid levels of the power steering pump as well.

Gear Stiff On 1995 Chevy Lumina


I think this is an actual cable which hangs up in cold weather..find the cable ends under the hood near both the transmission and the steering column end.. each end should have a rubber cover on it..take a can of wd40 spray lube put the little red tube into the spray nozzle of the can.. insert the end of the red tube under the rubber boot and spray a few seconds worth of this into the booth coating it really well...then without starting the car(turn the key to the run position to unlock the system) slowly work the shifter up and down between gears and you should feel it work easier as you move it up and down..do this each time it becomes harder to work the shifter..also do the base of the column where it comes to the outside of the car body..road dirt and grit build up here and cause stifness also..

Steering Problem


This is the car and truck section, but generally it depends on what is worn out.
Often times the play is in the gear box.

Key won't turn and steering is lock on a 1990 Oldsmobile Calais?


Try to wiggle the steering wheel as you turn the key, the wheel may have some force on the lock so turn wheel to the right and try to turn key then turn left and try the key again. if this doesnt work then the ignition is worn and you will need to wiggle the key to get it to start also try to spary a little wd40 in the ignition key hole and work the key inside the ignition.

Steering of my plymouth neon 1995 suddenly got very stiff as if it is no longer hydraulic. I checked the steering oil ,it was at low and subsequently topped it but found very little difference. What could...


you need to bleed the air out which is very easy to do. turn the steering wheel all the way to the left... hard left so it's making a noise... do that for abit. then turn the wheel to center... shut of the car and check the level of the fluid. top up if necessary. now start the car and repeat the same thing to the right. after you have done this check the level again.

should be fine

The power steering is not working when i turn right. Turn left no problem. Why?


If the suspension is not binding (check with both wheels off the ground) then likely there is an internal valving problem in the steering box. Sometimes changing the fluid in the unit can help but most times the box needs to be rebuilt or replaced. (cheapest option is a scrapyard part...chances of getting another failed unit are almost zero)

The key and tumbler is bad. If rocking the steering wheel did not work the tumbler is the problem. Which brake foot or parking brake is stiff ? How do you mean stiff ? Is it hard , or hard to push?
