It's most likely low on fluid or the pump is going bad. If for some reason your power steering has a separate belt try tightening it first.

SOURCE: 1992 Pace Arrow Motor Home 454 Chevy...not getting fuel to start

After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

SOURCE: 2002 monte carlo fuel gauge doesnt work,pump works ok.

It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.

Maybe you need to change the gas filters or maybe try better gas or maybe change the fuel pump.

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.

I have a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE and something is wrong with my power steering. It's not low or leaking fluid, the pump and the pressure hose are not leaking, but my power steering does not work unless...


sounds like the power steering pump is the problem. check the drive belt for proper tension and if that looks fine - then replace the pump.
the reason it only works when you step on the gas is because the pump is moving faster then at idle. which is why I think it could just be a loose belt. but again - if the belt looks good and tight, then the pump is bad and needs replacing.

I have a 2004 GMC 2500hd 4x4 lifted with 37" tires, my power steering does not work unless the truck is moving. is that normal, or there a fix?


Because of the big tires, it takes more power than the system has to turn them while sitting still. The system was designed to work with the proper size tires only. A new steering pump may be a little stronger than yours since it is not worn any.

Whining when i press gas


normally, the only part of your automatic transmission that will make a whining noise is the pump. it usually whines when iether the fluid is low or more commonly when the transmission oil filter is getting plugged up.

the power steering pump will also make a whining noise too.

turn the wheel all the way to the right and hold steady pressure against the stop. this puts maximum force on the power steering pump and, if the power steering pump is the one making the whine, it will change the sound of it. (usually louder).

if the trans pump is making the whine noise, it should sound different in neutral compared to drive. this test will really only work if it make the noise without the vehicle moving. if it wont do it at idle hold the rpms at 2000 or so.

if you decide the noise is coming from the transmission, and the transmission filter has not been replaced (assuming you installed a used transmission), replace the filter by removing the oil pan.



oh and also, if it is the power steering pump you should be able to make it make the whining noise while the vehicle is stationary. if it wont make noise unless its moving its not the power steering pump.
