2004 Intermittent Power Steering

Lost power steering about 80K miles. The belt is new and tight, replaced pump and added new fluid. Power steeing worked fine for a few hundred miles and then lost power steering again. Thought it might be the rack but didn't have enough money to replace. Drove about 1000 miles without PS and all of a sudden it began working fine again. Are there any electronic systems that could be creating this problem?

Check the power steering fluid, it could be that it's just low. If it's full it might be time to get it changed. Also check the tension on the motor belt. If it's loose you won't get full power to the pump.

It sounds very much like your power steering pump is going out. It was very good to check the fluid, something else that you may want to check is the tension on the belt that is turning the power steering pump. In few cases a worn belt can lose it's grip on the pully, especially if it's cold outside. Also, sometimes the tension pully is bad and isn't able to keep the belt tight enough to get a good grip on the pully.
If you are sure the whining is comming from the power steering pump, you will most likely have to replace it.

I hope this helps you.

Steeing is very hard at slow speed and while stopped


It sounds like you are having a problem with your power steering system. Check that the power steering pump has fluid to the recommended level. Also check that the power steering belt has not broken.

Power steering went out has fluid cant turn steering wheel


Hi, it sounds like your power steering pump or rack has died. Is the belt ok & tight on the pump? If no fluid lost, no loose belt etc, will most likely be pump, hope this helps :)

Power steering pump--2001 hyundai elantra


If it's not a serpetine belt, max deflection of 3/4" on longest segment should be safe,  don't make alternator belt tight as a drum or you will burn out alternator bearings quickly.  If it has serpentine belt, the spring tensioner should keep the belt properly tensioned unless it's worn out.
It only needs to be tight enough to not slip, too loose will squeal and you will have to tighten,  to tight will kill alternator and you will spend $$.
