Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
I have a grinding nise in my sterring wheel no matter how wide or easy i turn my wheel but does not drive hard dturns wheel easy still..is it the pump? is there anything i can try first for i replace pump to see for sure?..thank you...barbara THIS IS A 1998 FORD WINDSTAR GL VAN
I don't think it is the pump. The pump would generally make a noise all the time because the motor's belt is what powers your power steering pump. Sometimes you will hear it bog down the motor when it is being turned all the way to one side or the other but that sould be about it. The grinding you described sounds like a rack and pinion problem and not anything to do with the pump itself. I hope im wrong because rack and pinion fixes are much more expensive and time comsuming to repair
