SOURCE: power steering

MOST LIKELY THIS IS THE POWER STEERING PUMP AND THE ELECTRIC ASSIST FAN UNIT CONNECTED TO IT. OFTEN THE FAN COVER WILL OR CAN GET CLOGGED, BUT MORE LIKELY IT IS THE PUMP. IF IT GOES OUT IT USUALLY DO SO SLOWLY. THE STEERING WILL BE HARDER BUT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STEER. THE NORMAL COST FOR THE REPAIR IS $1000 WITH LABOR. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG, BUT CONSIDER BUYING THE PART ONLINE AND DOING IT YOURSELF OR TAKE THE PART TO A COMPETENT GARAGE
AND HAVE THEM DO IT.YOU COULD SAFE HALF THE COST!
REALLY.

SOURCE: steering is stiff driving on the road... feels as if it sticking

1.It isn't a lower or upper ball-joint, lower ball-joint, nor tie-rod end. A lower ball-joint being bad, would make the front-end shake. Upper ball-joint, and tie rod ends being bad, would make steering erratic.

Sounds more like the problem is in the steering box. In all actuality, it almost sounds like the power steering pump wasn't changed. Are you sure it's a new, known, good pump?

SOURCE: After high speed driving, slow speed shudder

when it starts to shutter get the car up on a lift and spin the wheels and look and see if there is a wheel bubble.
if the brakes were done recently a binding brake pad can cause some of that.
hope this helps

SOURCE: its hard to steer the vehicle when going slow

straight from Haynes manual:1 - worn ball joints,tierod ends and steering gear assembly
2 - front wheel alignment incorrect
3 - tire pressure low
Check for fluid in th power steering reservoir, if you hear a squealing or whining sound it may only be out of fluid. is there a drive belt missing, check for that too!

I30 2016 model.Bought December steering is stiff - sticky above 60 mph making small direction changes difficult to acheive. It is fine at lower speeds


take it back in for a steering module check
the hyundai I 30 elantra has a recall ( 2015) for loss of power steering due to a loss of steering assistance from an electrical power steering fault
There is a control module that applies full assistance at low speeds , parking or cornering but reduces the assistance effort at speeds where assistance is not really required
from your description, it indicates that the control module is not functioning correctly and so you are advised to take it back in for a recall check or a warranty check on the system

Why doe's a 2008 dodge avenger shug when it put in gear


I'm not certain what SHUG means. Can you offer a better description?

It is normal for there to be a slight bump when shifting from park to drive, especially when very cold. Something I do that helps is to shift from park to neutral and wait a few seconds before shifting to drive. That seems to ease the process of shifting to drive. Also, check the fluid when the engine is warm and idling in Park. If low, add only the necessary amount.

Where is the power steering pump located?


ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS)
The TSX uses Electric Power Steering (EPS) which regulates steering via a computer-actuated electric motor. With the computer-controlled system, advanced algorithms built into the operating software allow for continuous fine-tuning of the steering assist forces so that minimal force is required at low speeds- such as when parking or maneuvering. Conversely, progressively higher steering effort is generated at higher speeds (such as when driving on the freeway) to deliver a sport-minded driving experience.
The EPS system found in the TSX is an evolution of an earlier EPS system found on the Acura NSX supercar. Its key features and advantages include:
  • The EPS system reduces the steering effort at low speeds, improving agility and ease of effort when parking or maneuvering in tight areas
  • Rigidity of the steering mount is higher, which allows a more precise and "connected" feel during high-speed maneuvers (such as during lane changes or when on winding mountain roads)
  • The EPS steering assist incorporates computer algorithms based on vehicle speed rather than engine speed, allowing TSX engineers the flexibility of tailoring the steering feel to match actual driving conditions- especially high-speed driving. The EPS steering algorithms incorporate steering assist changes for every 0.6 mph.
  • The EPS system is different (and uniquely tuned) for each of the TSX models: 2.4L I-4 sedan, 3.5L V-6 sedan, and the new Sport Wagon.
  • EPS employs a sporty, 13.5:1 steering ratio which further improves performance driving agility
  • In its evolution from the original NSX system, the TSX's EPS system uses a significantly more powerful electric motor teamed with a far more sophisticated microprocessor
  • By eliminating the conventional power steering pump assembly, EPS uses less engine power which improves acceleration and fuel efficiency
it is an electric pump without a pulley or belt or fluid apparently

My steering goes from soft to very stiff especially at slower driving speeds while driving.


Check to see if the belt that drives your power steering pump is worn or improperly tensioned. Sounds alot like a loose belt.

After replacing power steering pump, steering still feels hard. rack and pinion was replaced less than 3k miles. car has been sitting for several months.


i've had a similar issue with a 99 M3. really stiff steering. i thought i was getting old and weak.

I was chasing another problem when i discovered a solution for my stiff steering issue.

Most of these vehicles have a valve that helps control steering pump fluid flow at various speeds.

i.e at higher speed you want stiffer steering. at low speeds easier steering. however, how does the pump known your going faster?

Note: all bmw steering hoses leak...

As your car ages, so do electrical contacts, especially in harser climates.

I used eletrical contact cleaner and di-electric grease to solve an intermittemt ASC problem.

This also cleared up the steering issue.

get some electrical contact cleaner and some di-electric grease. pop your hood and clean as many electrical connections as you can and apply a little di-electric grease after the contact cleaner drys.
even do the dme.

Note: I have replaced the power steering rack twice before i discovered this fix. You may also fix some other issues in the meantime.

electrical contacts may be the biggest problem source for most newer vehocles since they tie everything together.

2008 dodge caravan 31k miles. I devevelped a drining hum.


Since you are still under warranty, I suggest getting your transmission checked at a dealer. We had to get ours replaced at about 28M miles. It was making wierd noises, especially in a parking lot at low speeds and when turning slowly.

There is no dipstick for the transmission fluid on our model :(

If you recently changed tires, then that could possibly be the noise too.
