I know this sounds too simple, but are the tire pressures correct? I had a non power steering car do the same thing when the tires were low. If driven often, then have the alignment checked.

When is the last time the front end has been lubricated, just a thought. My 1991 Lotus Esprit SE also has heavy steering which is normal for these racing suspension's. Its to compensate for over steering, which is easier to do with power steering.

hi Jo,the power steering is powered by the fanbelt and if its slipping will cause it to go heavy but a light would come up on the dash to tell you the alternator was not charging.so if not the belt,it could be the electrics for the pwr steering need looking into,this is easier to get on the dealers diagnostic computer which will show up the exact fault.and would save any guesswork.

Range rover l322 2002 heavy power steering renewed


The Solenoid fitted on the Steering Rack is not getting the command from The Body Control Unit. Kindly Replace your BCM and then your problem is solved. You can try to make sure by giving direct current of 12v to the solenoid and check the Steering. if it works then simply change the BCM as it's not giving d command to the Solenoid. Salman EiD

Can you tell me why my volvo 850 t5 estate the steering is very heavy, plenty of steering fluid? sudenly becomes heavy, will then go back to normal then heavy again.


sounds like your power steering is failing, get it checked at a garage asap, steering is important when going fast :), probably needs steering wheel taken apart and power steering components checked for wear/damage.

Very heavy steering on escort xr3i


it varied across the range, if you can see a bottle with a steering wheel icon on top then yes, however the older escorts where heavy to steer, i think that it was later on that they started adding power steering.
