Check to see if the power steering pump is still turning. If you have a broken drive belt (serpentine belt or "fan" belt), and the pump doesn't turn, you have no power assist. If the pump is still turning, check the fluid level in the reservoir.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leaked out of 2000 GMC Jimmy

well it went somewhere, check all the lines and look for signs of recent fluid leaks, it will be very apparent if u lost that much fluid, most likely it will either be the power sterering hoses or the front shaft seal of the pump.

SOURCE: power steering problem when turning right

I'm not sure if that truck has rack and pinion steering, or a steering sector. In either case, it sounds like you have stuck valve and the hydraulic pressure is fighting you, instead of helping you. When ever you turn the steering wheel the valve is supposed to move and direct the hydraulic oil pressure to help you steer. The valve is built into the sector or the rack and pinion, you may have to replace the assembly. There are companies that recondition those items so you might want to shop around.

SOURCE: power steeing fluid leaks

try replacing the o ring or use double o rings between the reservoir and pump, pressure builds from use and the fluid blows out of this o ring even after the vehicle is off. When the dealer replaces the pump they re-use the reservoir and o ring so the problem does not get fixed. The fluid runs down the pump and the lines to the rack, instead of washing the engine and observing where the fluid is leaking from, they replace good parts until they find the problem. Sometimes one o ring isn't enough.

We have a 2003 yukon denali xl and just turned real hard to back out of a field and now you can hardly turn steering wheel to drive..


Have you checked the power steering belt and the fluid level in the power steering reservoir? The belt may be slipping or the hard turn may have caused a leak in one of the hoses that power the unit.

My power steering is low and my yukon is making a noise when i turn. i dont have any power steering fluid right now can i use atf instead until i can get some.


I would get power steering fluid and not substitute ATF... I'm sure there's a fuel station or convenience store nearby you can locate PS fluid from. Also when you top it up, with it running turn steering from stop to stop (side to side) not holding at stops for anything longer than a second or two to get air out of system, then retop.

My steering has become very hard


Unless the drive belt to the power steering pump is slack, the pump itself is likely worn out. Fluid leaks can be at any part of the power system, but usually it occurs at points that have seals--either the pump shaft, the assist cylinder, or the control unit in the steering system. Spread some newspapers out under all components of the power system when the truck is parked. The leaks will show as red spots on the paper where they are. Replace the offending component. Hope this helps!

Very hard to steer wheel in my 2003 gmc yukon and there is plenty of steering fuid in it


Turn car off - Remove power steering cap, and turn streering wheel hard right or left and fluid should pour out (cover surroundings with rags.) If so, check your power steering pump.

Power Steering Fluid Leaking!


should only be 2 hoses coming from and to your PS unit 1 is high pressure and the other is a return line. the Fluid all over the engine compartment is from the fan blowing the fluid,

my suggestion clean the area fill the PS unit up and have someone start the vehicle and watch where the fluid is coming from.

Steering issues


Find the leak and repair it...It is a sealed system, if you are adding large amounts of power steering fluid, it is leaking out somewhere. Hoses, reservoir, steering box, power steering pump are places to check. You should only have to add minimal fluid to the system for the entire year.

The immediate squeal you hear is most probably the unit is out of fluid or has leaked onto the serpentine belt and causing it to slip.
Fix the leak and check your serpentine belt for wear.

4LO problem


Sounds like you may have a problem with the power steering pump. Notorious for these pumps shaft to break, causing "armstrong" power steering. As far as the 4wd low problem, ick.
