SOURCE: steering wheel is hard to turn...is that power

Does your car make a groaning noise when you turn the wheel? It could be a few different things. The first thing you want to do is check your power steering fluid. If it's low, top it off and see if that helped. It just takes a standard power steering fluid, nothing specific.

If the power steering fluid was low and that fixed the problem, you need to ask yourself the question - Why was the fluid low? There's probably a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.

If the power steering fluid wasn't low, then there's a couple other things it could be. If the car makes a groaning noise when you turn the wheel, chances are that you have a bad power steering pump. If there's no noise and you just don't have any power steering at all then it could be a bad pump or a bad power steering rack.

Hopefully this helps you figure it out. Good Luck!

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.

Ya i got a k1500 4x4 lifted 35 inch tires I just replaced power steering pump. And now when setting on the ground and u turn the wheel it takes off turnin by its self and at some point o havet to give it...


Hi,

You need to bleed the air from the power steering system, by turn the wheel to the hard lock on either side an hold it there for about 10 sec.

This should then bleed the air out and return your steering to normal.

Thanks

Steering system


It very possible that the new power steering pump is defective. I would take it back for a possible warranty issue.

I'm confused about the part where the water pump damaged the power steering pump. The power steering pump doesn't require any cooling from the water pump. The power steering pump only needs the belt to run it properly.

Steering problem


check your power steering belt. it may have broke or slipped off the pulley. if it seems ok check your fluid level. if it is still at normal operating level for hot or cold then your power steering pump may have just seized up and you may have to replace it.

Steering wheel hard to turn; power steering fluid is full


Hi,
Intermittent hard power steering, at the begining of the turn of the steering wheel, once disturbed past the hard part, works normal.
Had fluid change, I notice a sensor, on the control block tower of the rack, is this at fault ? thanks buckleyeng.
