Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My power steering pump on my "55" plate Kia Sportage, is stopping causing the belt to slip. It does it more when the car is cold or when the steering is on full lock. The power steering pump has been changed however the problem still exists.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

My granddaughter's 1999 Sportage steering makes quite a bit of noise when she turns the wheel...hard left at low speeds...especially when she has been parked.


Check your Power steering fluid, lines, and pump. It sounds like your pump is going out, however, check the lines before hand to make sure you haven't just lost the pressure.

2004 Kia Amanti shakes when steering when vehicle is cold going forward or reverse. Stops when warmed up.


it could be caused by a belt slipping, low power steering fluid, or by a problem with the power steering pump itself. check the power steering fluid level, check the belts to see if they are snug and dont have excess play in them, if not sure on how to do it take it to a mechanic to have the belts checked and tightened to spec or replaced. and last of all if none of the above helps, have someone check the power steering pump out.

Battery good, car cranks over, makes missing a belt


if you were driving on a humid day your belt could just be slipping causing hard steering and causing your alternator not to charge properly
