SOURCE: The power steering suddenly went out on my 2000

The power steering bottle will have a rather big cap, and if you open the bottle you should notice it in an instance, because it is red in colour. Besides the power steering fluid, make sure that you dont have a belt missing on your pulleys. Some pwer steering pumps run on a separate belt. Just the fact that you said that the power steering suddenly went out, tells me that a belt could have snapped. Please let me know if you are sorted

SOURCE: the power steering belt is broke on a kia sportage

I would replace it yourself....very simple to do! The belt is $13.00 Power Steering Pump Belt

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the A/C and alternator drive belts for access.
  3. Loosen mounting lock bolt (A) and mounting bolt (B).
  4. With tension released removed the belt.
To install:
  1. Properly route drive belt around the pulleys.
  2. Carefully pry on the power steering pump using a suitable lever. Adjust belt tension is 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm) when measured at deflection point shown.
  3. Retighten bolts (A) and (B) to 31 ft. lbs. (42 Nm).
  4. Reinstall the A/C and alternator drive belts.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Power steering bleed valve

I don't know of any vehicles with PS bleed valves, would be surprised if Kia has any. The usual method to fill the lines and get air out, is to turn the steering wheel from stop to stop a few times. If wheels are hard to turn, you could raise both front tires off the ground. Keep checking the PS reservoir to top it up. And of course, car should be running. Don't hit the stops hard, just turn from stop to stop. Then let the car down and road test. If still stiff turning, repeat the procedure.

I replace the power steering hose and try to bleed it but it mains stiff. more like manual steering as oppose to power

If the power steering had been run dry for a few days, this would destroy the P/S pump requiring replacement. If you have sealed all leaks, filled system with Dexron/Mercon, ran the steering back and forth(sometines this can and does take a while) to the stopping points, you will need to replace the pump. I would try raising the engine RPMs first and work the steering back and forth, you may just have a very very stuborn air bubble. Try this first and let me know how it went.

POWER STEERING DOES NOT FUNCTION .I changed the power steering line from pump to steering box, Oil goes down in resevoir but power steering still does not function properly. Thank you. G, Ingalls

you have to bleed the system...might have air trapped inside...jack up the front end off the ground (both wheels) and turn wheel side to side a couple of times, this may rid the trapped air..then recheck level, turn wheel side to side when on ground to see if its better, add more fluid if needed, and repeat...sometimes just driving the car for a few days might also work out the air...but that a long shot!

If you don't have any brake lines leaking, change the master cylinder, bench bleed the new one then bleed the blakes, starting with the right rear, left rear, right front, then left front. If the booster was gone, you would hear air leaking out of it when you pressed the pedal down.
