Power steering doesnt turn, is it my power steering switch???


Hi Chris, the concept of power steering in cars and trucks should read POWER ASSISTED, this means if your power steering fails, you can still steer the vehicle unlike some machinery and tractors that have full power steering which the steering wheel will just spin when the engine is turned off with no connection to your wheels, If your steering wheel does not turn it is a mechanical problem, steering arm jammed pitman arm in the wrong position or something like that. remove the pitman arm off the steering box and see if it will turn. you did mean that it won't turn at all and not turn easily like power steering should

Whining sound when turning


Please elaborate. Does it happen when stopped and turning the steering wheel, at certain speeds or both?
Does yours have power steering? That was an option for 1990.
First thing that comes to mind is the power steering pump or just low on fluid. Check the fluid level first. Not necessarily in danger of imminent failure but if yours has never been replaced it would be a good idea to get a new one for peace of mind.
One way to check it is to go to drive into a big empty parking lot, turn off the engine (don't turn the key too far as to lock the steering) and make some of the same kinds of turns that typically makes the noise happen. If it still makes the same noise it's NOT the power steering pump and I'm at a loss without more details. If it doesn't whine, then it still could be something with the power steering. With the car running and parked have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth and listen for it under the hood and you should be able to find the source. If you don't know where the power steering pump is I'd suggest getting a service manual. I recommend one from Haynes.

I have a 94 ford mustang. I hear a bad "rubbing noise" in the front end and also a whine from the power steering pump. The steering seems to be ok, but people are telling me i need a new power steering...


It sounds like you need to replace it or you can get your power steering pump flushed out and give that a try. As for the rubbing noise I need more info. What are you doing to make it do that noise? Do you know where in the front?

No power steering to the left.


Well, the pump doesnt know what direction you are turning, so I suspect the box. Thats guessing because I really dont know what you have. Year? Make? Model? Trans? Gas? Diesel? Ect.

2005 cobalt stalling out


If the power steering is tight and does not loosen up,i would say the power steering pump is locked up.With the engine not running ,remove the drive belt from the engine.Try and turn the power steering pulley with your hand.It should be easy to turn,turn it 4 or 5 times all the way around.If you can not move the pulley,or it stops,or gets tight turning it all the way around,then it is a bad power steering pump.This is something you will want a mechanic to do.If I can help,let me know.
