SOURCE: power steering hose cme off causing atf leaking

If the hose clamps onto the rack & pinion,get a new clamp (replace the hose too,its probably worn)Reinstall it.fill the p/s resovoir,start the car (when the fluid gets low,add more fluid)It will make moaning noises.Just make sure the new hose isnt leaking.Turn the steering wheel back & forth a few times,top off the fluid,turn the wheel again,you should be ok.If the hose bolts on to the pump,you will need to change the hose with a wrench.(fluid replacement is the same way.

SOURCE: loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?

Hi Norman,

Sounds like the adjustment may not be correct on the power steering belt, with the tension not being enough, after you replaced the belt ?

Try giving it a little more tension, and go from there.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

John.

Well,what happened is that the drive belt came off.The big question is,why? Did the pump sieze up,or did the altenator?Or did you go through a big puddle?That would do it too.See if components turn freely and go from there.

Power steering keeps going stiff all the time


There are 2 things that cause power steering to go stiff. The power steering pump itself either from failure or "lack of fluid" and the rack and pinion assy under the car.
Most of the time the failure is the power steering pump itself. The teflon rollers fail inside the pump and it either stops providing an output pressure or it seizes up. You can loosen the power steering pump belt then try to rotate the pump by hand. It should move by hand. If it feels like it is intermittently locking up as you rotate, it the teflon rollers have failed and the pump will need to be replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My renault dimonique displays a stearing fault stiff to turn only happens when its cold but the garage carnt find any faults in the memory


You wont see any faults in the memory as most likely the power steering pump is failing thus taking longer to get the fluid around. it can be very dangerous ask the gearge to check the pump.

The engine turns over but it won't start.


Unfortunately the F9Q (1.9 DCi) has 3 common faults, these are as follows

1. MAFS Mass air flow sensor - this will cause initially hesitation but eventually make the car really slow as the turbo waste gate will no longer open.

2. EGR - Exhaust gas recurcultion valve - a result fro the forementioned, the MAFS failure causes high carbon build up, this sticks to the valve and siezes it open, this causes an inlet pressure fault code

3. In-line fuel pump - this pump is a 3bar pressure pump that really plays up then gives up the ghost, hence *non starter* it could be hidden away somewhere on the chassis, you need to look for it, it could be mounted under an wheel arch etc. It is about 5" long and 2.5" diametre, it is inline so a pipe at either end and 2 wires going to it.

I bet my last dollar thats what is up. It fits in with what you said.

Let me know if UK I may help more

Merry Christmas

I have a cousin with a shop in Montreal and he is having a problem with a 01 bmw 740 il,so im posting for him,the power steering shuts down when pulling into a parking spot or going slow,this vehicle has...


Power steering does not seem to have any assist when at a stop. Tests/Procedures: 1. The power steering assist is speed dependent and should be quite easy when stopped/low speeds. This is controlled by a solenoid on the side of the steering gear box.

2. Check for faults in all control modules. The general module is what controls current flow through the solenoid. Clear all faults and see if power steering operation is normal.

3. At the servo, check for power and ground from the general module. If none present, check wiring back to general module connector X254, pin 9, Black/White and pin 11, Black/Red.

4. Replace solenoid as necessary.

5. Disconnecting the solenoid will remove the variable assist function, but the steering system should still have considerable assist. If it does not with the solenoid disconnected, consider hydraulic faults as the most likely cause. A failed power steering pump is much more likely than the steering gear. Potential Causes: Defective General Module
Defective Power Steering Control Solenoid
Defective Power Steering Pump
Damaged Wiring
If your cousin has access to wiring diagrams he will be greatly advantaged in diagnosing this issue Good luck
