Make sure the serpentine belt is tight. If it is you may have gotten a bad pump

The problem is your intermediate steering shaft. It runs from the bottom of your steering column to the steering gearbox. While you are in the shop, though, now may be a good time to replace both the steering gear box and pump as a precautionary maintenance measure. It truly isn't necessary if you aren't having issues, but sometimes replacing one old part will open up the blinds to see another worn out part that needs replaced. It's cheaper to have the mechanic replace them while they have everything apart, than to have them take it apart on 3 separate occasions.

if you have a leak from the back of the rack your sector shaft seal is defective. to replace it you need to remove the rack and do it on the bench.remove the locking nut and pull the seal from inside.if you are a rooky replace the rack with a rebuild one. good luck.

Dear bigwood_84, Sat 02-21-2009 12:46pm EST (USA)

Try a can of "Bars' Leak" for power steering leaks 1st available at your local auto parts store. It's cheap and can't hurt but may fix your problem!

Advanced Auto Parts has a tool lending policy and a lot of good advice!

When a power steering pump begins to fail, it's best to replace the pump and both pressure and return hoses to this system.
Recommend you replace this as soon as possible because it could eventually cause damage to your steering rack and pinion.

My 1994 F150 pick up had right side power steering go out about a month ago, and now the left side has gone out. Is this a pump problem? Or gearbox problem? (Fluid level is great)


If your power steering went out one direction at a time, it most certainly has to be the steering gearbox causing the problem. All the control valving is in the box. The pump just pumps constantly and the box either bypasses or directs pressure and flow.

I did a similar thing 4x-ing in my v-8 dodge years ago, I blew a seal in the pump (high RPM's produced excessive pressure with no load on steering), but no noticeable noises. I had to replace pump, I was lucky it wasn't the rack...

2 inches @ the steering wheel? i do not recommend tampering with the screw on the gearbox. that is for adjusting the sector shaft, usually only adjusted on high mileage gearboxes. since most of your driving is straight the gearbox worm gear wears out in that position, by adjusting it, it tightens up the gap in the gears the problem comes in when turning because it can be too tight on the ends of the shaft possibly binding up in your gearbox.and no matter what happens next it probably wont be good. try checking the couplings in the steering shaft. with the vehicle off, steering unlocked, have someone move the steering wheel left and right making sure not to move the tires, your looking to see play at all joints, couplings, or pivots. where you see one piece moving and the other not.

My power steering pump went out again. I just put a new one on about a year ago. Is this a problem with these trucks


No problems or recall notices on the factory or aftermarket power steering pumps at the moment.

These pumps take lots of stress during there lifetimes and, it is very important to make sure that the fluid levels never drop below the recommended level. running a power steering pump low on fluids, can decrease its lifetime dramatically. Considering the fact that, this pump is on a truck, this will make this Paramount that, you should always monitor the fluid level at all times. even if its a new pump, always monitor the fluid levels.

Now, if you drive this vehicle and work it hard, the pump will take a beating and, the life span will decrease a bit. One year life span is quite unusual but, it is also, in the normal range if the vehicle is worked hard.

If you are concerned about the durability of the brand of pump you have purchased, i suggest trying a different aftermarket brand of power steering pump made by a different manufacturer. I would go for a more HD type pump and i would also run a more HD hose assembly as well to increase the lubrication factor.
