Get it to a shop you may have a power steering censor leak. If your handy read on.. Check the fluid level if it's low don't add more change the censor first then refill. The issue is the fluid travels through the censor into your wiring harness to your computer and other censors shorting everything out. If your fluid is low pull the censor wire off it's next to the fill tank on the pipe connected to it, if you see fluid in that wire bring this truck to Dodge. Or as I said before if your handy and you suspect this is the case, wright back and I'll give you a call and walk you through this. This is a common serious problem the can destroy your computer and possibly you engine. It can be fixed for under a hundred dollors.

I just had this same issue on my 2001 Durango. I thought the power steering pump was gone.
Mechanic found that the main steering shaft was extremely dry and rusty. The elbow in the shaft was very stiff making the wheel harder and harder to turn. He replaced that part and its like I have new steering.
Part: $185.00
Labor: $39.00

Why does my Steering whine and difficult to turn?


Power steering pump. If the gears in the pump become worn or "galled" the pump will whine and it will be harder to steer until the pump is replaced. **Check the power steering fluid level first. If it's low add to the correct amount. This may help if it's just low on fluid. If this doesn't help it is probably new pump time.

Stiff power steering problem


you probably need to check your powersteering fluid. if it is low, try adding some, if it is full you need to replace the pump. Mine has went out in similar circumstances.

Ranger power steering stiff


Check power steering fluid, should be clean and clear, if it's cloudy or milky, then water has contaminated it, which will make it harder to steer., especially in cold weather. Check filler cap for small leak which will allow water to enter. Check front tires for low inflation, which will also make it hard to steer..

Are xj6 power steering because i am looking to buy one but went on a test drive the streeing was very very stiff far more stiffer that normal are xj6 power steering


Yes, they come standard with power steering. There was most likely a problem with the power steering pump on the one you test drove. The power steering fluid could be low or dirty. Also, the pump could be worn out which would make the steering a bit stiff as you found. I would ask the seller about it and also check the fluid level, if low or dirty then request it to be changed and then test it. Hope this helps!

Power steering stiff


Sounds like your power steering pump is getting wore out im assuming that you have checked the tension on your power steering belt and its tight and that your power steering fluid is full id try changing your power steering pump you can probably pick one up from a scrap yard cheap also try this website rockauto.com for cheap new parts

When pulling into a parking stall the car raced forward


try removing the floor mat.. sometimes the mat gets caught on the gas pedal and as you apply the brakes it applies the throttle. It would seem that the harder you press the faster the engine races...
