SOURCE: power steering

MOST LIKELY THIS IS THE POWER STEERING PUMP AND THE ELECTRIC ASSIST FAN UNIT CONNECTED TO IT. OFTEN THE FAN COVER WILL OR CAN GET CLOGGED, BUT MORE LIKELY IT IS THE PUMP. IF IT GOES OUT IT USUALLY DO SO SLOWLY. THE STEERING WILL BE HARDER BUT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STEER. THE NORMAL COST FOR THE REPAIR IS $1000 WITH LABOR. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG, BUT CONSIDER BUYING THE PART ONLINE AND DOING IT YOURSELF OR TAKE THE PART TO A COMPETENT GARAGE
AND HAVE THEM DO IT.YOU COULD SAFE HALF THE COST!
REALLY.

SOURCE: Power steering pump seems to be dieing on my 2001 hyundai elantra

If it happens mainly when your car is cold, it is a common symptom known as "morning sickness" or "black rack disease". Check your power steering fluid to see if it has become discoloured. If so, try flushing the system and replace the fluid with an approved power steering fluid. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the rack and pinion steering unit.

SOURCE: loud squealing from power steering pump - do I need new PS pump?

Hi Norman,

Sounds like the adjustment may not be correct on the power steering belt, with the tension not being enough, after you replaced the belt ?

Try giving it a little more tension, and go from there.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

John.

Sounds like impurity in the oil.
Strip the rack and clean out. or replace both units ( pump and rack)
As all the junk usually ends up in the rack ready to destroy another pump

I have a warning light on the dashboard looks like a tap/ pump, what is it?


Hi there,

If it's this one:

...then it is your OIL PRESSURE WARNING light.

This means your engine is either low on oil, has the wrong oil viscosity in it, or the pressure sensor is faulty.

My power steering pump is not working would that cause my battery and oil light to light up on my dash board


You haven't removed power steering belt right? The power steering belt it's the same for the alternator and the oil pump, if that belt is burst then you are gonna have your battery light lit and your oil pump won't work so it's gona detect low oil pressure and your oil light will lit too. Make sure that you don't have a missing belt, cause if you do and you keep runnig the car, the battery will discharge and the engine will be damaged. If the belt is ok, if the power steering is getting stucked then the belt may be getting stucked too and that's gonna cause the same troubles. If that's happening it's gonna continue doing it until the belt cracks or the power steering pulley blows.

While turning the steering wheel there is a whining sound from the motor. What is it?


you can hear your power steering pump working and if it's whining, it may be low on fluid.
Check the fluid level with the engine running and be very careful of moving or rotating parts.
Locate the pump and check the level (the cap will usually have a dipstick to measure the level attached to the cap and you read it the same way as your engine oil dipstick). DO NOT overfill the pump as it will just leak out and cause other issues.
If the level is very low, top it up then work the steering from side to side a few times then recheck the level. Careful, power steering fluid can get very hot!!
If the fluid in the pump looks dark or black, take the vehicle to your local mechanic and have the fluid replaced and the system flushed.

How do I Tell if the power steering pump is bad


you wont have any power steering for a start if its realy packed up,, but they do get kind of ***** and lumpy before they go,, look for oil leaks and also try turning the wheel from lock to lock at a stand still with the engine running , if it fells ***** look to see if the prowr steering oil is full up, if its low that can cause the steering to be lumpy,, if its low top it up and with the engine running turn the steering from full lock to full lock till all the air has been pumped out,,the steering should be smooth by then

Oil pressure gauge keeps fluxuating. Think it is the sensor. Want to know where the sensor is located on my 1994 lincoln continental


The oil sending unit is located below the power steering pump. 
You can get to it by removing the alternator, then the three bolts around the power steering pump bracket. Remove the small pulley on the bracket and pull back on the power steering bracket. Look behind bracket and you will see the oil sending unit. 

Disconnect the wire from the oil sending unit. Use a deep socket (1 1/16) to remove unit. 

While you have unit remove, I would go ahead and use an oil pressure gauge to test the oil pump pressure. 

Good luck and hope this helps

Audi power steering pump location


Before you replace the pump, check the filter located inside the oil tank. This filter cleans the oil before going to pump. REMEMBER that Audi uses a special oil!!! Not your normal power steering fluid! Mixing them could cause damage to the entire system!
