Steering wheel slightly hard while turning my car


The two systems in question are not related, so you have two issues to deal with. The power steering issue could be as simple as a glazed or loose drive belt. When you turn the wheel, the power steering pump puts additional load on its pulley. If the belt is glazed or loose, it can slip momentarily and cause stiffness in the steering. Low or contaminated power steering fluid can also cause this. Moisture in the fluid will cause problems since water compresses differently than hydraulic fluids. As far as the transmission is concerned, there are a lot of things that can cause late shifting, from vacuum issues to solenoids, to fluid quality and level.

What can cause the steering wheel to be hard to trun


The most common cause of a steering wheel being hard to turn is an issue with the power steering system. Often, the power steering fluid is low or almost out and simply needs to be refilled in order for it to work properly. If the belt is broken in the power steering system, this can also cause problems with the steering system, and there could also be an issue with the power steering pump. The first thing to check would be the fluid level and evaluate further, if needed.

Power Steering reservoir leaking and dripping on Serpentine Belt, possible cause of loose belt movement (has come off once already). Wobble of A/C Pulley, resulting in A/C not cooling.


Power steering pump shaft seal is leaking, You can add a table spoon of DOT 3 brake fluid to the steering fluid to condition the seal. The A/C pulley wobble is a compressor clutch bearing problem and requires the correct puller to replace. Replace the clutch as a unit, to avoid messing with the bearing. Replace the belt if the steering fluid leak stops. If the brake fluid trick does not work, replace the steering pump. Parts and labor will be better than 200.00

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.

Power steering for my Bora/Jetta 4 V5 has suddenly gone and its hard.


Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Power Steering Fluid Low Power Steering Fluid Level.
2 Inspect Power Steering Pump Worn out or Damaged Power Steering Pump.
3 Inspect Power Steering Hose Leaking or Incorrectly Installed Power Steering Hose.
4 Inspect Belt Tension Incorrect Belt Tension Will Allow Belts to Slip.
5 Inspect Belt Incorrectly Routed, Adjusted(Tensioned), Missing or Worn Drive Belt(s).
7 Inspect Ball Joint-upper Worn, Damaged, or Faulty Ball Joint.
8 Inspect Ball Joint-Lower Malfunctioning Ball Joint.

What happes when a vehicle experiences a loss of power steering, is that the car reverts to a
manual steering car (like in the Model T days), making steering difficult, especially at low speeds,
and during low speed maneuvering.

2002 nissan sentra 1.8L steers hard to the right and the left no apparent signs of a leak what are my options for the problem power steering pump is not making noise


Have a competent shop look at your steering rack. They go bad without leaking, internal seals go bad and don't hold constant pressure.

Where s the power steering top up resivoir on my honda civic 1400 imagine??


Follow your fan belts. One of the belts operates the power steering unit. The resivor should be right there with the power steering unit. It is best to check the level when motor is cold. If it has gone completely dry then you will need to get the air out of it after adding fluid. To do this you add the fluid then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and then back to the left several times. After the steering wheel feels smooth while turning it then you are good to go. Recheck the fluid first after you have turned the steering wheel back and forth and top it off to the mark on the level stick. Hope this helped, raz
