Check the power steering belt, it may be slipping or broken, check the power steering fluid in the reservoir under the hood.

Hi There! TAke a look at this site:
I found this: Steering / Electrical Power System: "this technical bulletin provides a procedure to inspect the steering gear for a normal condition of grease or sealant on exterior case of gear due to the manufacturing process."
On this site there was one person who had stiff steering but the wheel wells got full of snow. https://www.vehiclehistory.com/vehicle-problems/searching1.php?reloaded=1

Steering wheel stiff when turning right or left on a 2002 camray le. There is sufficient fluid for the pwr steering. I assume it's something else.


definitely check ur belt condition and tightness..very important.. also wiggle or pry on pwr steering pump pulley to make sure ur shaft hasnt broken .not hard but few wiggles w long prybar should do it. very possible u have a bad pwr steering pump. no pressure in system, or very old burnt out unflushed fluid,dirty fluid.not common.

Power steering stiff


If the steering is noisy as well as stiff then the steering fluid is low. If it is not noisy then the fault is most likely the pressure control valve inside the power steering pump sticking open. The Pump would need need to be re-conditioned. Also check steering rack boots are not twisted as well as tyre pressures.

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
