Where is the power steering pump 97 geo tracker


97 geo tracker is not equipped with power steering. they where made so light that they just have steering assist which doesn't require power steering fluid or anything else. you will notice that when vehicle is parked or at slow speeds steering wheel is hard to turn. this is perfectly normal its just not power steering.

NEW RACK & PUMP: Steering is still hard at slow speeds. Why?


If the belt is slipping it would do even more so at higher rpms. Plus it would be harder to tell if it is slipping at high speeds due to the fact that just about all rack and pinion systems steer easier at high speeds.
My best guess would be air in either the lines or pump. Driving will not remove the air as it is a sealed system.

Why does power steering get harder at lower speeds


if the belt is nice and tight and is spinning around the pulley and fluids are full, then your steering pump is going bad

The steering in my 98 Buick Century is hard to turn at low speeds. Is this a steering pump issue or the rack and pinion?


Your PS pump is fine.

This vehicle has:

Variable-assist power steering: A power steering system that uses valves and speed sensors to vary the amount of steering assist according to engine or road speed. At slow speeds more steering assist is delivered and steering the wheels is easier; necessary for parking, etc.. At higher speeds, steering assist is reduced and more steering effort is required to steer the car, giving the driver greater feel of the road. Also known as Speed-sensitive power steering.

Loss of current to the magnetic coils would cause a loss of power assist at low speed. Coil resistance can be checked with an ohmmeter, and should read about two ohms. An infinite (open) reading indicates a bad coil (requires replacing the rack since the coils are not serviceable). Checking for shorts between both sides of the coil assembly and rack housing is also recommended.

Best wishes

Power steering works hard at low speeds parking etc put then seems ok when you get going maybe rack and pinion


The VOLVO 740 does not have speed sensitive power steering, so is a little harder to turn when going slow.but is very light when doing over 100mph.

Steering not straightening out at slow speed


Worn steering components which allow the steering wheels to travel too far either way,hop underneath and get a friend to move the steering while you have a look for movement between the components, or a power steering component like relief valve. Its a bit hard to know without seeing the vehicle, i suggest a steering and suspension specialist like pedders or similar.These guys can do a safety inspection only, if you want to do the work yourself. Cheers Timo.

Car vibrates at slow speed, veering to the right,steering wheel vibrates; vibration less at higher speeds; within last two weeks couple of times steering hard, revved up in neutral it comes back to easy...


check tyres for wear-wheel balance needed if visibly ok-have a wheel alignment after a tyre rotation-best even tyres to be put on fronts-they will carry out a safety check all suspension and steering before doing the wheel alignment
