SOURCE: hard steering..i have 98 gmc jimmy. after full left turn going down from ramp the steering stuck and hard to steer. i found out that there is leak in steering fluid and very low in gauge. i added flui

turn car off turn steering wheel from left to right all the way each way for about 10 to 12 times with it full of fluid you have air in your system and that will bleed it out in most cases

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Focus losing power steering fluid.

It could be leaking inside the dust boot on the steering rack. if thats it ...it will eventually start leaking from the boots after they fill up. You could have a small leak from one of the lines. Good Luck

SOURCE: 04 durango Steering problem. Turns easy going right. turn hard going left. turning left feels like no power steering. anyone have an idea on what the problem is. Already flushed & put new fluid in...

at this point I would suggest that there is a problem with the directional valves in the box or hose condition as the pressure for the right is the same as for the left
it is not getting that pressure through the valve to assist with the turn
have an accredited steering specialist shop check it out

Adding power steering fluid


Locating the Power Steering reservoir and adding PS fluid. 1999 Pontiac GP


  • The reservoir is clearly visible in the engine bay on the 3.1 litre engine cars.
  • For the 3.8 Ltr engine cars, use a flashlight to look down past the alternator for a black cap with a steering wheel printed on it to indicate the power steering fluid reservoir. ( passenger side of the vehicle).
  • Remove the cap of the power steering reservoir, clean the dipstick, re-insert and remove again to check the fluid level. If the level is at or below the low level mark, add fluid slowly, taking care not to fill above the MAXIMUM mark. It's best to add small amounts and re-check the level as you go to ensure you do not overfill the reservoir above the MAX level.
  • ONLY use the power steering fluid recommended for that vehicle by GM.

    Power steering making loud noise, while turning....been adding lucas power steering for the last 4,5 months or so....what can the problem be?


    You drive a caddy, spend a buck and get a new power steering pump. I would check the lines also and see if there is a steering fluid cooler which could have sprung a pinhole leak. It is 12 years old, most of its brethren are already upside down in junkyards.

    Power steering makes noise that changes with the speed of the car. The power steering goes out during any rain event. 150,000 miles, original engine.


    If the P/S pump is not low of fluid and you have not just recently added P/S fluid then the pump needs replacing. If you recently added fluid to the pump and it was low it may have air in the system. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel fully to the right and fully to the left 10 times. This will remove any trapped air.

    87 honda.. power steering not working. fluid was disappearing. mechanic found a leak at the boot. replaced the rack with a new one. we drove it and it was now hard to turn like pump not working. took 2...


    power steering fluid does NOT go anywhere near the boot.but when you fitted a new rack did you turn steering wheel fully left and right several times to prime the rack and then check the fluid.....half a quart is a lot of fluid to add to the system (change your mechanic ASAP)MY BICHON COULD DO BETTER....

    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.

    Power steering fluid added to brake fluid. Where are the two well openings located in relation to each other? How can I get the person who caused the damage pay?


    well there are no openings for power steering because its electronic on the cobalts the brake fluid bottle is on the firewall in the engine compartment on the drivers side, the cap clearly says brake fluid, i don't know who was checking your car but all cobalts have electric steering. in order to fix the problem your going to have to have the brake system completely flushed with new brake fluid before any damage is done, hopefully no damage occured already!

    Power Steering Fluid


    sometimes adding brake fluid to the power steering pump will stop the leak if its not to bad.you may have to keep adding as it leaks down untill you use about a bottle ,before it stops the leak.
