My power steering was bone dry


Lacking power may mean a burned out pump but whine is caused by air in the pump. A mechanic had me jack up the front end of my van after I refilled the reservoir on the power steering. He said to turn the steering wheel from stop to stop back and forth at least 120 times to work the air out of the pump. Afterwards it seemed to work ok but still had a whine until I got rid of it.

My power sterring stopped working then started working again. whats up?


Check to make sure the belt is tight, a belt should not move more than a quarter of an inch. Then check the fluid levels in the power steering unit. If both of those check out okay, if it was cold (30 or less) when the power steering stopped working, but warmer (32 or higher) when it was working it is probably your U joint that needs to be replaced. Water can get into a U joint with a broken seal and you won't notice it until it freezes and your car will feel like it has no power steering because all the ball bearings in the U joint are frozen in place. If that's not the case, I would take it to a mechanic and have the power steering lines bled to make sure there is no air in them, the presence of air can make the car seem like the power steering is not working also. Good Luck!

Speedometer will stop and also power steering


After reading up on your problem,(I was dieing to find out what it was). It seems you are not alone, your car has a power steering pump called a servotronic, or something like that, and they go bad, there is a relay switch on the passenger side under the dash, pull it out, and see what it does to the steering, It may be a little tough getting used to , but everybody who does it says they won't put it back in. As far as the speedo goes, it has to connected somehow unless it is coincidence. I would get the one going and worry about the other later. Check it out.

My 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has a power steering leak but seems to work well. my mechanic wants to replace the whole rack and pinion, but that seems extensive for a leak. any suggestions?


Anytime a power steering compononent is leaking it requires replacement. whether or not you choose to replace it is up to you. if you lose all power steering fluid you will lose your power assist however mechanical steering ability is still maintained.
