When turning right or left steering wheel sometimes turns hard


Make sure power steering is full. The steering pump may be going bad. Rack and pinion may be bad also. Could help more if you had make year model of vehicle.

Hard steering


it is probably in your steering rack and pinion, if you have rack on your truack otherwise it is in the steering box, you would be surprised to know how many time the main shaft gets twisted in an accident then causes steering problems

Power steering hard to turn


The power steering system includes a P.S. pump which will whine when you turn a hard left or right while in park. There are also power steering hose that can leak. Then there is also a power steering gear box. Unless you have a rack and pinion steering system. Then that is changed as a unit.

The steering works fine turning right but hard when turning left what would the likely cause be? I changed the power steering fluid that helped some.


This would be the power steering rack. Bad seals. When you turn one way do you hear any noise? if not then it is the rack. If you hear a noise, then look to the ball joints or struts. But this is not likely.

Steering hard to turn to the left like power steering is out but turns ok to the right. Checked power steering fluid. It is OK


bad steering problems,,your steering rack most likely,but,have you recently been stuck in ditch? when wheels are straight, look at front of car when parked. do wheels look funny? one going one way, and the other going the other? may be alignment. is it leaking any fluid on either side of the front of the car? drivers side? passenger side? if it's not out of alignment,,,wheels out of alignment,,the steering rack is the problem. it may be faulty. if not leaking fluid,it may still be bad. first i would make a visual test look under the vehicle while someone turned the steering wheel to right and left while car is in park,emergency brake on!! look at the steering arms while they turn the steering wheel from right to left. no fluid leaks? any resistance in turning the wheel? any leaks,if so,go to leak and repair with steering line replacement.no leaks? suspect a bad steering rack. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com i love to volunteer

87 honda.. power steering not working. fluid was disappearing. mechanic found a leak at the boot. replaced the rack with a new one. we drove it and it was now hard to turn like pump not working. took 2...


power steering fluid does NOT go anywhere near the boot.but when you fitted a new rack did you turn steering wheel fully left and right several times to prime the rack and then check the fluid.....half a quart is a lot of fluid to add to the system (change your mechanic ASAP)MY BICHON COULD DO BETTER....
