Check the drive belt for condition and tension. Have a pressure test done on the pump to ensure that there is no internal problems . Check for relief valve operation . Check that the valves in the box/rack are operational and not stuck. Most of these suggestion will have to carried out by an accredited steering repair shop. If you have an electric driven pump check that the motor is getting current and is operational.

Stiff power steering problem


you probably need to check your powersteering fluid. if it is low, try adding some, if it is full you need to replace the pump. Mine has went out in similar circumstances.

Mixing automatic transmission oil and powerstering fluid


Normally atf(automatictransmissionfluid)is ok for powersteering also, but there are some bmw models that it doesn't fit.
If you have a green label on your powersteering oil tank, then you should use sfs11, if I remember right. Anyway this whatewer oil ia the same that citroen uses for hydraylic systems. Suspension etc.
But don't mix them.

Installed new powersteering pump on 1994 GMC 1500. Steering still stiff after running new pump for close to an hour . Does this new pump need to bleed out yet .. ???


Well you may have turned the fluid into foam.Let it sit and let all the air settle out of the fluid and then try.

Golf 3 gsx no powersteering , steering very stiff


Have you checked the tyre pressures. If you have no power steering a flat tyre will make tunning the wheels hard due to more turnning rsistance. Also a seized ball joint some where would also make steering hard.Hope this helps
