It sounds like your steering pump or rack and pinion are defective. You should get more power assist. If the bypass valve is defective, you will have the problems you mentioned.

Since your vehicle is fairly new it may still be covered under warranty. Go to a dealer and mention the bypass valve, show the tire receipts.

Its unfortunate you changed the tires as the tires would show alignment issues with the front end. You may get a courtesy alignment if the old tires were warranteed. If you have the fronts you could bring them to the dealer.

Need a how to replace the power steering pump video or walk through. Already trlouble shooted everything else


Try looking for PS pump replacement on youtube videos.

Use a turkey baster and suction out all the fluid from the reservoir. Then you can loosen and remove the power line and the return line of the fluid. Don't forget the drive belt, of course, but now you can unfasten the pump and replace it.

Very hard to turn steering wheel


Um... the video didn't demonstrate anything, only showed the steering wheel and the key.

If the engine is running, the tires aren't jammed against solid objects, there's no noise from the pump, the belt is tight, the power steering reservoir is full of fluid, and the steering wheel is still very hard to turn... then I suspect that the power steering pump has simply worn out badly and needs to be replaced.

Hard steering


The starter has nothing to do with hard steering. For hard steering check the front tire air pressure, power steering fluid, and the power steering belt.

At 100kph the wheel will start to wiggle vigorously.the car has undergone wheel alignment and wheel balancing.what shall we do next?


If it starts shaking after 100kph then its either the power steering pump or the steering box is going bad. Do you hear wizzing noises when you turn the wheel right and left (similar to a turbo boost sound)? Have you recently notices problems with steering like being delayed?

The only other thing that would cause something like that would be if the tires are worn badly on places. If this was the problem, it would not really shake the wheel - but when the tires hit a bump or notch in the road it would allow them to go in that direction easier then usual. So it would seem like something was grabbing the wheel or changing the course while driving.

If you steering box is going bad, you will notice other things like a delay from when the wheels start to respond after you have turned your steering wheel in a certain direction. if your turning right and there seems to be a delay as to when your wheels begin to turn then you need to have the box checked.

After checking the box if that is not the problem, try adding power steering fluid and see if that fixes the problem. If it doesn't then have the power steering pump checked.

you are on the right track.

before you replace anything else, try Lucas Additive for power steering.

1992 ford f150 4by4 power steering only easy to the left hard to the right already replaced the pump and believe i've bled all the air from system.


To bleed the right line turn the wheel all the way to the right with the engine running. Once all the way right hold the wheel and shut the engine off. Let it sit for several minutes and restart. See it that does it. If not pop off your center steering link. If the wheel turns super easy in both directions, check front end components.

Power steering


Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.
