I have trouble with the power steering on my 2007 impala and no garage can seem to know what the problem is.got over 2000.00 dollars spent.


It sounds like your steering cylinder has bad seals and oil is leaking around the seal. This is an internal leak and would not be visible.

Power steering stiff and fluid not leaking


Stiff power steering can be the result of low or contaminated power-steering fluid (it may need to be changed or flushed). A loose serpentine belt, a worn out power-steering pump, tie-rod/s or ball-joint/s may be seized, or possibly the rack and pinion may have an internal failure. I listed it in the order that I would check all related items. If you have any questions, findings, or details, please write back. Good luck.

HARD AND STIFF STEERING


It won't hurt to drive it. Steering will just be stiffer without the power steering. Once you are moving, it will be easier to steer.
Don't know the problem, a shop will have to check it out. But it is okay to drive it.

ABS and power steering light is constantly on


Hi. The only link between abs and power steering that springs to mind is the steering wheel angle sensor but you really need at least a code read of the systems as the faults may be unrelated. I think spending a few quid at the local garage and getting a proper insite into what is going on will be money well spent. The pedal vibration will probably turn out to be the abs activating on low speed braking as it is seeing a low speed signal from one wheel sensor. This can be caused by an abs speed sensor being improperly gapped or a damaged sensor pick up ring among other things, Again without some real details or codes from the ecu its hard to give a real diagnosis. A visual inspection of the wheel sensors and pick up rings may reveal something - you don't need to know exactly what your looking at just that they all look the same and clean, no missing teeth on the pick up rings or cracks. If you get at least a code read and post the results we might be able to delve a little deeper.

Plus , do they know what voltage drop testing a electrical circuit is . I should find better mechanics .

My power steering resevoir was empty. I noticed it because my steering was suddenly stiff this morning. Nothing in my manual said anything about a particular type of PS fluid so I went to Walmart and...


You will have to look where it is leaking from and get it fixed. Running without power steering fluid will eventually burn you power steering pump out and yes if you power steering is that hard to turn when out of fliud, it is dangerous.
