Does it make a whining sound while trying to steer? Your power steering pump may be going out. Or low on fluid.

My ford f150 steering is very stiff and when l move the wheel back and forth it makes a grinding noise and feels like l don't have power steering


check the oil level in the reservoir for the steering. Have the pump tested by an accredited steering specialist shop. check belt condition and tension.

Power steering keeps going stiff all the time


There are 2 things that cause power steering to go stiff. The power steering pump itself either from failure or "lack of fluid" and the rack and pinion assy under the car.
Most of the time the failure is the power steering pump itself. The teflon rollers fail inside the pump and it either stops providing an output pressure or it seizes up. You can loosen the power steering pump belt then try to rotate the pump by hand. It should move by hand. If it feels like it is intermittently locking up as you rotate, it the teflon rollers have failed and the pump will need to be replaced.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Key will not start f150 truck I can circumvent and turn it over but how do I put in new switch


Disconnect negative on battery. Pull steering wheel with steering wheel puller. Take off turn signal assembly.

Put key in old lock, turn to on, you will see small hole on top of steering housing, put in stiff wire to push back retainer holding old lock, pull old lock out, install new lock, reverse procedure.

Steering went stiff very suddenly on 2000 F-150. Auto store ''experts'' say it is the power steering pump. Need a schematic to replace it and instructions on bleeding air from the lines after...


PS pumps are pretty straight forward. You don't have to worry about bleeding the lines. Just replace the pump, fill reservoir to full mark on dip stick, start engine. Run steering wheel from lock to lock, check oil level. Repeat until oil level remains at the mark.

I had a similar problem with the steering being stiff almost to the point of seizing. They found that the universal joint(or knuckle) between the steering column and rack and pinion was seized. I hope this helps.

Steering is stiff driving on the road... feels as if it sticking


1.It isn't a lower or upper ball-joint, lower ball-joint, nor tie-rod end. A lower ball-joint being bad, would make the front-end shake. Upper ball-joint, and tie rod ends being bad, would make steering erratic.

Sounds more like the problem is in the steering box. In all actuality, it almost sounds like the power steering pump wasn't changed. Are you sure it's a new, known, good pump?
