No power steering


Possibly it`s a bad power steering pump. Check the lines for leaks, make sure fluid level is full first. Power steering is a closed system. Some cars are equipped with a rack and pinion steering. Conventional cars have a power steering pump and a gear box.

Power Steering hard to turn


Take the power steering fluid cap off and see if fluid is circulating if it is the pump is fine. Most probable cause is steering rack is defective

Added new power steering fluid to the old now my steering is hard


First question is : Was the fluid added marked as poere steering fluid? If so, it's odd that the steering would suddenly become hard. What I would do is disconnect the return line (the one that has a hose clamp on it, not a pressure fitting)
Drain the system there and refill with fresh fluid. Since the fluid has not been changed, you may want to do this twice after running it for a few minutes between changes. If this does not restore proper operation then the pump or steering rack has an internal problem and will need to be diagnosed by someone with experience.

The power steering suddenly went out on my 2000 Kia Sportage. No other problems, still drivable you just have to crank the wheel really hard. Where is the power steering fluid located? How do I check it?


Check to see if the power steering fluid reservoir has the proper amount of fluid. If the fluid is low you will hear a noise from under the hood and the steering will become harder. Look under the front of the car for oil leaks. The other thing is the belt may be broken or come off the pulley. Normally this belt is used for more than one item such as the alternator, engine water cooling pump or air conditioner compressor. If this is the case than one of the above mentioned systems would also have failed.
