Hard steering


The pump may not be working as and is now under stress caused sometimes by the power steering pipes braking down on the inside of the pipe. You will have to replace the pump and check the pipes from the power steering pump.

Steering is stiff & difficult during turns.have used power steering fluid.2001 suzuki vitara xl7 v6 4dr


Its either the power steering pump, or the rack & pinion, (steering gear). It is only going to get worse, and maybe even dangerous, as the steering will jam and not turn. Have it inspected by someone you trust....soon! If it is the rack & pinion it may cost around $500 to have it replaced. Make sure that price includes the required front-end alignment. It will drive like new afterwards!!

The steering is hard to move and the steering warning light is on. Please let me know what to do I need to urgently resolve it.


The servo unit on the steering has failed . Look inside the engine bay for oil leaks - if none are present then the entire steering rack will have to be replaced - the internal seals have failed.

Does a 1997 grand gt 3.1 liter have rack & pinion steering? I'm told the power steering went out and I don't know if it might be the pump or what.


Your car does have rack and pinion steering. If all of the fluid leaked out somewhere and you continued to drive, you probably have 2 problems to repair:

1. What ever started leaking (return hose, rack, pressure hose, or could just be the pump itself)
2. Power steering pump was damaged from lack of lubrication (fluid)

97 Jaguar XK8 has no power steering. I am considering buying. The lot owner has assumed it's the P/S pump. I work on heavy equipment and would like to do the work my self. Can you provide removal...


There are only two bolts that hold the power steering pump one is the main bracket and the other is the adjustment and by the way youll have to remove the 2 belt in front if any are there. 1 remove the belts. 2 reove the power steering hose.3. take bolts out the attatchiment to block bolt out. 4 take out the adustment bolt. remove the pump. install in the reverse order, By the way power steering on jaguar has what they call morning sickness that when it stiff then unstiff as it is driven if the steering is not being assisted then you are going to have replace rack n pinion. In my opinion with jaguar,your rack n pinion is faulty.let me no there is a way to test the pump. Heres how turn the wheel and remove some fluid when the pump is low does it churn and foam the fluid? If yes do the rack n pinion. leave the pump alone

I went to drive my car to work this morning and lost the power steering feels like it locked up the leak of power steering fluidf is leaking from the rack and pinion not pump


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then the oil seals of the rack and pinion should be replaced. If the seals are worn out it tends to leak and can definitely feel a loss of power. If it still leaks even after the replacement then the rack and pinion should be replaced.

There are instances that after oil seal replacement it still leaks it's because that the rack and pinion has severe damage.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Power steering fluid leak, 1992 dodge stealth


If the line from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion is leaking, replace it.

If the rack and pinion is leaking replace it.

If the power steering pump itself is leaking, then replace it.

Which section is leaking?

Power steering pump is stiff on occasion not only in the morning but sometimes during the day also.fluid is at normal level. belts have been replaced last year?


The fluid check valve built into the power steering pump may be bypassing your pressurized fluid back to the reservoir, and not assisting your steering input. You may need a new pump. The only way to know for sure is to have the power steering output checked with a guage set.
