Why does my 2005 chevy colorado steer so hard I can't turn the wheel unless I'm moving forward also when applying the brake when coming to a stop my engine wants to cut out rpm dropping below 500 help


You may have more than one problem. Start with the power steering. If the power steering pump is causing a problem it may be seizing causing hard steering at slower speeds and putting an extra load on the engine causing the lower RPM's. Have this checked first.

Whining is typically one of two things. The power steering fluid is low or the water pump is on its way out.

Why does my Steering whine and difficult to turn?


Power steering pump. If the gears in the pump become worn or "galled" the pump will whine and it will be harder to steer until the pump is replaced. **Check the power steering fluid level first. If it's low add to the correct amount. This may help if it's just low on fluid. If this doesn't help it is probably new pump time.

check your power steering fluid level. when level gets low low the pump will start to make noise, also in colder weather the fluid becomes thicker and if the pump is starting to fail it will create noise also,

NO POWER STEERING AND NO BRAKES WE CHANGED P/S PUMP AND THE HYDRO BOOST NOW WHAT


The brakes and the Power Steering are two different systems and two different problems. The brake problem is going to be a caliper or master cylinder issue which maybe a Vacuum issue if the Power Booster hose is leaking or disconnected from the master cylinder. The power steering is going to be low fluid in the power steering pump, faulty power steering pump (Obvious if you were hearing a whine that got louder as you turned the wheels, or the Power assist piston that connects to the tie rods.

Have a low level whining sound in the front which increases with RPM. Seems like it may be in the transmission or a bearing in a pulley.


most likely it is the power steering pump, they whine when the pump is going out or low on fluid.
