1997 Jeep grand Cherokee limited 5.2l v8....how to fix very stiff steering. I have changed the power steering pump already an it is still hard to turn my wheels


sound like lack of lubrication at the steering joints, your ball joints need greasing and make sure you bleed power steering system, check power steering fluid level.if low more like power steering system full of air need bleeding.

I replaced power steering pump now the steering works but is stiff


Do the following if your drive belt is okay and your tensioner is okay.........Probably air in the system. Turn the steering wheel while running the engine in park,to extreme left where you hear the noise of the bypass kick in,for 5 seconds.Then turn to extreme right and hold it in extreme bypass position for 5 seconds.This will bleed some air out.
Check power steering level and repeat this a coupla' times if necessary. Make sure not to overfill it. don-ohio

How do i bleed my power steering, level i good but a little stiff, 2005 dodge dakota quad cab 4.7 liter 4x4


you don't bleed your power steering,just make sure it's full,if you have any air in the system it will work itself out,if your steering is stiff could be be a sign of a worn unit or the rack and pinion.

I replace the power steering hose and try to bleed it but it mains stiff. more like manual steering as oppose to power


If the power steering had been run dry for a few days, this would destroy the P/S pump requiring replacement. If you have sealed all leaks, filled system with Dexron/Mercon, ran the steering back and forth(sometines this can and does take a while) to the stopping points, you will need to replace the pump. I would try raising the engine RPMs first and work the steering back and forth, you may just have a very very stuborn air bubble. Try this first and let me know how it went.

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.

Steering is really stiff after replacing power steering pump on 2000 chrysler cirrus??


Is the drive belt adjusted properly. Did you bleed all air from the system after installing the pump? Start the engine and turn the steering wheel from left to right fully 10 times. This will remove any trapped air. Check the fluid level and top it off.

Power steering stiff - is it the pump ? or the steering rack?


If the wheel binds up or you encounter harder steering in one direction but not the other, it's your rack. Check for leaks, is it from the connecting hose or the rack itself. Can't find it? It's usually on the bottom rear of your engine,a tie rod on either side will attach to your steering knuckle. If your steering is stiff while wheel is centered or at maximum lock it's your pump.

Never worked on a mini in particular. Doing a quick google search and pumps (minus labour) seem to be 350-450$ depending where you go, unless there's some crazy book time i'm unaware of, 1300$ seems pretty steep.

Is there a noise when you turn? If there is, jack up the front end and remove the cap off your power steering resevoir. Slowly turn the wheel from lock to lock, while the engine is running, to bleed any air out of the system
If you replace one or the other, don't forget to do the above step.
