Question about Cars & Trucks
My 5429 model 2004 has been sitting in a garage for 3 weeks. when i parked it, it worked fine. when i started it today the power steering and hydraulic lift and transmission would not work. i increase my rpm but it only jumped on hydraulic left. the power steering could barely move. what is wrong? i changed filter and the oil level is good?

You probably do have a power steering leak. Check the fluid again, it's most likely low if you are having an increasing problem with it. As the fluid is drained slowly through the leak it allows air bubbles to enter the system and cause it to become sluggish or sticky. Get the leak fixed asap so you don't spend a huge amount on fluid and keep an eye on the fluid level.

SOURCE: loss of power steering
If memory serves me correctly... the 05 deville is equipped with "Magnasteer" the electical connector at the rack and pinion is not a pressure sensor unless its on the line itself. The system operates by inducing voltage to magnets in the rack to make turning easier at lw speeds while adding resistance at higher speeds for added control and less drift. Check for any codes on your climate control by pushing "off and warmer" at the same time with the engine off, key on. Google the codes and see if any relate to the steering system and repost! I hope that helps!

Whine usually occurs on tight turns maximising pump output and/or pump may be worn and needs replacement. Leakage can be from pump reservor,connection, or power rack and pinion steering assy. Spray off any area with a sign of fluid with a brake clean or carb. cleaner and look for signs of leakage.

Try hitting the brake off and on to see if the rpm changes when you do that with the car in park. If it does, you may have a ruptured brake booster. A fluctuating rpm while your car is in park with the brake on indicates a vacuum loss. Other things may cause a vacuum leak including the air conditioner controls inside the vehicle. Other things that cause this may be cruise control or your Air Conditioners high idle solenoid.
