Question about 1982 Chevrolet G20
In May we replaced the p/s pump and have driven about 2000mi since then without trouble. About two weeks ago the steering went, suddenly no p/s. We assumed a bad pump but upon inspection noticed slight leakage at the steering gear box. Otherwise the fluid is full and not burnt, foamy etc. How do I tell if the loss of p/s is from the gear box or something else?
Best way is to dry off everything in that area and place a piece of cardboard down under it. Either wait a day...or a few hours (depending on how bad it is leaking) or start the vehicle and turn the steering wheel from side to side. This should be able to pinpoint WHERE the leak is originating....then you can fix what is leaking. The steering gear box is actually easy to replace.
