Air bubbles in power steering fluid in a 2001 impala


Power steering punps tend to leak the oil is thin and seals tend to ware over time.
You may never see a leak because the pump is so close to the fan it blows away ends up on the inside of the hood .
The reason you see air bubble's is with all light oils if oil can get out air can get in kind of like a leak in your brake line.
You can buy power steering fluid with seal swell witch depending on how much its leaking may fix or slow it down but its not the end of the world if it leaks a little just check it from time to time as long as there is enough oil in the resievor it will work

Steering wheel is hard to turn...is that power steering fluid? Is there a specific kind for 2001 Zx2?


Does your car make a groaning noise when you turn the wheel? It could be a few different things. The first thing you want to do is check your power steering fluid. If it's low, top it off and see if that helped. It just takes a standard power steering fluid, nothing specific.

If the power steering fluid was low and that fixed the problem, you need to ask yourself the question - Why was the fluid low? There's probably a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.

If the power steering fluid wasn't low, then there's a couple other things it could be. If the car makes a groaning noise when you turn the wheel, chances are that you have a bad power steering pump. If there's no noise and you just don't have any power steering at all then it could be a bad pump or a bad power steering rack.

Hopefully this helps you figure it out. Good Luck!

2001 a4 audi steering is tigth


Do you mean hard to steer your steering wheel?
If you have a noise when you are turning your steering wheel, you may have low power steering fluid. Add power steering fluid into your power steering fluid reservoir to the level required (check with your manual book). Make sure you get the right power steering fluid for Audi A4. Hope it will help

Steering issues


Find the leak and repair it...It is a sealed system, if you are adding large amounts of power steering fluid, it is leaking out somewhere. Hoses, reservoir, steering box, power steering pump are places to check. You should only have to add minimal fluid to the system for the entire year.

The immediate squeal you hear is most probably the unit is out of fluid or has leaked onto the serpentine belt and causing it to slip.
Fix the leak and check your serpentine belt for wear.

Power steering leak


start the engine and allow it to idle,turn the steering wheel lock to lock several times to boost fluid pressure. then look under engine compartment you should see the leak also check the fluid reservoir for sign of foaming. This will indicate a leak check hoses around the pump area ect. hope this help
