Check for oil level in the reservoir. Check the drive belt for condition and tension. BY turning the wheel from lock to lock (recycling the wheel )you are in effect bleeding air out of the system

SOURCE: power steering oil disapears 2003 WV passat

likely either the steering rack&pinion assembly is leaking or the hoses to it are leaking, have it put on a lift to see which steering componet the fluid is leaking from.

Yes it could be the wheel bearing. After stopping, see if the wheel itself is hot to the touch (like burn your hand hot) if so, take it to the shop right away...unless you plan to change out the wheel bearings yourself.

SOURCE: steering wheel is pulling to the right. At low speed (15 mi.) steering wheel moves at least 2 inch each way, car shakes when drives faster. Not a wheel or alignment problem. Could this be the drivesha

Sounds like you have a split belt on one of your front tires. Check this by jacking up car and support on stands. Spin tires by hand and look for uneven tire surface.

What is the drive cycle for a 01' Chevrolet Venture?


Drive cycles can be done in about an hour. 15 minute intervals.
First at highways speeds. Second at 45 MPH. Third at 30 MPH. Fourth at stop and go traffic. So from the highway to the city. Or replicate it on country roads. Just a note. drive cycles don't really effect emissions. You may won't check state requirements, or take it to another shop. or ask another shop.

Drive cycle reset


Drive Cycle resets to reset the OBDII testing phases are very specialized to the year, model and engine of your car. So I can only speak generally. Start the car from fully cold and let it idle for about 15 minutes, then put the car into gear and drive it for about 5 minutes at 35 mph, then get on a highway and drive at about 60 mph for 15 minutes, come off the highway and drive around 40 mph for 3 minutes, come to a complete stop (like a stop sign) wait 30 seconds, drive off again up to 40 mph for 4 minutes - and repeat the last 2 steps (going up to 40 mph) about 3-5 times. Then repeat the last two steps going up to only 25 mph. Then come to a complete stop in your driveway and let the car idle for 10 minutes with the a/c on . After this is done, hook up a code scanner and see if it reset the modes to "ready".

I own a 1999 VOlkswagen Passat. Just 15 minutes ago, my power steering locked up, battery light came on, temperature gauge went to the far right (hot) AND I have no heat. I'm sure they're all...


chances are there is 1 belt that runs all of the componets and the belt has either came off or broke replace it and you should be good to go.

Cant find the cap for the power steering on a pontiac 2006 g6


i have read 7 different reports like this one below


Well - my steering was acting up too and I had just received something from GM to say that there may be a problem but don't bring the vehicle in unless it is giving you problems. I would be driving along and all of a sudden the steering wheel get's "Heavy" feeling and I'm not sure if it will stop steering all together. So I took it in and was told that the steering column needs to be replaced. So they order the parts - takes over 1 week to come in and they do the work. The bill was $435.00 and GM did cover it. However I am still having the problem and the other day - 2 days after having it "fixed" I was driving down the highway and the steering wheel starting jerking around in my hand and the whole care was vibrating. I pulled over and got out to check my tires to see if I had a flat. I waited a few minutes - got back in and started to drive again and it was fine. The steering is still acting up and now after reading all this stuff here I am worried about driving it anywhere. I have a son in Special Olympics and we have to drive 60 km. each week on the highway to go swimming. Yikes - is this car safe to drive!! I called my dealer to tell him my problems and I am hoping that it acts up when I can drive it in there so that they can see what it's doing. This is crazy!!

Super duty fault code p1000


P1000 OBD-II Monitor Testing Incomplete

This is NOT a fault code. It is an indicator code that simply means all the self-tests have not been run yet since the last computer reset.
It's primary practical effect is to keep vehicle owner's from cheating on emissions tests.

That means there are no codes set and there aren’t enough drive cycles yet completed since the last time the codes were cleared. Once enough drive cycles have been completed you will get system passed or a fault code.

Most likely you need to take a drive, 10 minutes at highway speeds and 20 minutes at city speeds, without turning off the engine. Also while driving at city speeds there has to be several periods of stop and go.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE P1000 CODE MEANS FOR A 1999 FORD F-150 PICK UP TRUCK


P1000 means a drive cycle has not completed, it will only clear itself after driving the vehicle through certain driving conditions. If you try to clear the code, it will reappear until you repeat the drive cycle. I am not too familiar with what AE will show, but if you can access Mode 6 data or the OBD Drive Cycle(These are two options from the IDS at Ford), It may help to show what tests have either failed or not completed. Heres what must be done to clear the P1000:


Note: The IAT PID must be between 10-38°C (50-100° F) during the OBD II drive cycle to enter into all the OBD II monitors. The FLI PID must be between 15% and 85% at all times.

Drive in stop-and-go traffic with at lease 4 idle periods (30 seconds each) while observing the status of the OBD II monitor on the scan tool. If the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), heated oxygen sensor (HO2S), evaporative emission (EVAP), secondary air (AIR) (if applicable) or catalyst efficiency monitor have not completed, drive on the highway at a constant speed over 64 km/hr (40 mph) not to exceed 104 km/hr (65 mph) for up to 15 minutes. Heavy accelerations, sudden decelerations and wide open throttles are not recommended. If the scan tool sends out a three pulse beep at any time, the OBD II drive cycle has completed.

If there is only one certain component that hasn't completed its test, there are individual driving conditions to help those tests pass or fail if something is wrong.
