Question about Hyundai Elantra

2 Answers

I was driving along in residential area at low speed in my 1992 manual transmission Elantra when suddenly the power steering quit working. Steering became difficult. I take my Elantra in to for oil change and check on all fluids every 3,000 miles.

    PROBLEM WITH P/S STILL EXISTS.
    Hard to turn the wheel.
    There was NO NOISE when the PS quit.
    Steering fluid reservoir was almost empty.
    I filled it up with generic PS fluid and drove around the block. No improvement.
    Could only find one (1) belt. It was not loose.
    Don't know where the pump might be.

Hi. You may start checking if you have power steering fluid in the reservoir. Check also the belt of the power steering if it is loose. Check also the power steering pump.

Have you checked the fluid level and fill it to the proper level? Is the pump making any noises?

    Checking the fluid level is not difficult. It is other symptoms like noise; indicating a repair and part replacement.

I30 2016 model.Bought December steering is stiff - sticky above 60 mph making small direction changes difficult to acheive. It is fine at lower speeds


take it back in for a steering module check
the hyundai I 30 elantra has a recall ( 2015) for loss of power steering due to a loss of steering assistance from an electrical power steering fault
There is a control module that applies full assistance at low speeds , parking or cornering but reduces the assistance effort at speeds where assistance is not really required
from your description, it indicates that the control module is not functioning correctly and so you are advised to take it back in for a recall check or a warranty check on the system

Lumina troubleshooting


first check the condition and level of p/s fluid. if low top off first and turn your steering wheel left to right and back several times to try to bleed air out of p/s system. if p/s is still stiff or hard your p/s pump pressure output can be measured with a pressure gauge. if pressure is below specs its time to replace it. if your p/s output pressure is good then you would need to inspect your p/s hose or lines for kinks or restrictions to your steering rack. on certain model vehicles p/s sensitivity can be adjusted on the steering rack. you would need to check the vehicles service manual to see if its possible to adjust steering rack sensitivity.

Where is the power steering pump located?


ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS)
The TSX uses Electric Power Steering (EPS) which regulates steering via a computer-actuated electric motor. With the computer-controlled system, advanced algorithms built into the operating software allow for continuous fine-tuning of the steering assist forces so that minimal force is required at low speeds- such as when parking or maneuvering. Conversely, progressively higher steering effort is generated at higher speeds (such as when driving on the freeway) to deliver a sport-minded driving experience.
The EPS system found in the TSX is an evolution of an earlier EPS system found on the Acura NSX supercar. Its key features and advantages include:
  • The EPS system reduces the steering effort at low speeds, improving agility and ease of effort when parking or maneuvering in tight areas
  • Rigidity of the steering mount is higher, which allows a more precise and "connected" feel during high-speed maneuvers (such as during lane changes or when on winding mountain roads)
  • The EPS steering assist incorporates computer algorithms based on vehicle speed rather than engine speed, allowing TSX engineers the flexibility of tailoring the steering feel to match actual driving conditions- especially high-speed driving. The EPS steering algorithms incorporate steering assist changes for every 0.6 mph.
  • The EPS system is different (and uniquely tuned) for each of the TSX models: 2.4L I-4 sedan, 3.5L V-6 sedan, and the new Sport Wagon.
  • EPS employs a sporty, 13.5:1 steering ratio which further improves performance driving agility
  • In its evolution from the original NSX system, the TSX's EPS system uses a significantly more powerful electric motor teamed with a far more sophisticated microprocessor
  • By eliminating the conventional power steering pump assembly, EPS uses less engine power which improves acceleration and fuel efficiency
it is an electric pump without a pulley or belt or fluid apparently

Check your power steering fluid.

1992 silverado 1500. The power steering is intermittent, sometimes it works well for 3-4 days and then gets tight at low RPM. If I put in the clutch and rev the engine during a turn it starts to work.


If the belt and fluid levels are correct there is a good chance it may be a bigger problem. The power steering pump may be the fault. At lower speeds a worn pump isn't turning fast enough to push enough fluid. When you REV the engine your speeding up the pump pushing more fluid. Get the pump checked. If that's ok your possibly looking at a problem with the rack itself. ($$$ Ouch!).

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.

Pink fluid coming from drivers side front area near front left headlight Is it powersteering or brakes or what...?


It's the transmission fluid of the power steering fluid check the level on the transmission with it in park at idle if it's not on the stick do not drive it till you get it filled up it may be the transmission cooling lines going to the engine loose or the power steering hose loose or even the front axle output shaft seal on left side. check the transmission fluid first then check power steering fluid. If either is low do not drive it or you could destroy the pump on either one. Hope this helps. Thanks for using fix-ya.

No Power Steering


Sounds like a belt come off, that drives your alternator & power steering as well.

Where do you add power steering fluid on a 3800 II engine


Yes it does, but it is kind of hidden. Look down along the firewall, under and behind the alternator. It is down there quit a ways, you will need a transmission funnel to fill it.
