Check tyre pressures first if correct about 2.2 bar ,then change the load/pressure switch on the steering rack ,it should be located where the drive goes into the steering rack ,unless you have a electric motor system and not hydraulic if this is the case then dealer only as the control unit is all electronic and has to be centralised ,if some unskilled know it all has adjusted tracking but only on one arm then steering wheel spokes will be out of position and this will cause big problems .

Problem with power steering on my Ram 2500, 2006, hard to turn at low speed and when stop must give it some gas ti rev higher


I would flush the steering box really well and re-fill with fresh fluid. If you can get to the lines, it is not too hard to do. There are some additives available for power steering fluid, but the use of them is debatable.

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.

I have noticed that at times my steering on my kia sedona lx 2004 gets stiff like the power steering is gone .. as well my coolant levels are fine but i have no heat nor is the a/c blowing cold air .. what...


Some modern cars have an electrically driven pump to supply high pressure oil to operate the power steering. However, most cars have an oil pump for the steering which is turned by a belt from the crankshaft pulley. If the belt is loose or slipping, heavy steering will be the result, especially noticable at low speeds. Check belt for tightness, and check oil level is not low, possibly due to a leak?

My SAAB 9-5 2.3 Automatic (V Reg) cuts out at low speed


Take a look at the accessories belt.... does the battery and/or check engine light's on? This belt activates water pump (check temperature gage...), power steering pump (heavy steering...), a/c compressor (a/c working?) and alternator (battery recharging)... of course!

Hope it will help you, even if my english isn't terrible...

Heavy steering while care is stationary.


At idle speed the the pressere deliver by your steering pump are low; try to modified your pulley to increase the speed at low idle.
