If you have the money, just replace it.but if you need to wait awhile to get the green-backs,go to your local auto parts store (auto-zone,napa,walmart.)and get some power stearing stop leak ( as long as its not gushing out, that will stop the leak.)

How to fix a 0171 code

Your problem is being caused by a leaky power steering switch.

The switch develops a leak, which causes power steering fluid to seep into the engine wiring harness. The seepage eventually finds its way into the front O2 sensor, which then shorts out. The engine computer then starts reading a lean condition, and enriches the fuel/air mix going into the engine to compensate. However, since the shorted O2 sensor never responds to the extra fuel, the engine computer keeps shooting more and more excess fuel.

Replacing the O2 sensor by itself will not help matters, as you may have guessed. The seepage will have about a week or two to short out the new O2 sensor, then you will start seeing the same problem again.

The cure is to replace the leaky power steering switch (it's near the power steering pump), spray brake cleaner into the wiring harness until it drips off from near the front O2 sensor, let dry, and replace the front O2 sensor again. All of these actions must be completed, or you will see another recurrence of this exact problem.

I have a 2006 Hummer 3. The power steering gets stiff and hard to turn intermittently. I have the factory recommended tires and have the truck serviced every 4000 miles.

I find it hard to believe that one of the tubes of steering oil could be blocked unless hit, so I would go for the pump. Poor oil pressure, ends up to low oil flow. However check your tubes, from and to the pump, and then, go for the pump. Sorry I can't tell you more.

Power steering now broken

The leak is probably from one of the hoses, you will only here squealing if the steering box gets air into it, not hearing any noise is a good thing at this point, just be sure to keep fluid in the reservoir to keep air out, just don't over fill it. First, try any over the counter power steering stop leaks from any auto parts store, 9 times out of 10 that won't fix you problem, but it is worth a try. If that does not work you have two options, get the leaky hose replaced, or just keep fluid in the reservoir.

Hope this helps

2004 audi a6 3.0l noisy powerstearing

check for leak in power steering hose by taking cap off the power steering resevoir and than starting car, wait 1 min, turn wheel all the way left and than all the way right. do this about 5-8 times slowly over 3 min or so. turn car off, than observe fluid in resevoir. if you see lots of bubbles after 30 seconds or so, you have a leaky hose. air in the system makes the steering pump groan and moan and vibrate. if the pump is not bad, than change the hose and clamp. just fixed mine yesterday.  also buy a quart of 11s pentosin power steering fluid (green)...
