You may have a bad power steering pump i would first check the fluid and if that is ok i would have a pressure test done at the pump. you may also need to check the power steering rack.

Power steering max

Hi Sherman

You have to do this test to find out why the steering is heavy.
after you check the steering fluid level and top it up if needed.
start the engine let it IDLE try to turn steering and feel how hard or soft is.
Now rev the engine up to 2500 rpm and keep holding the rev. test the steering while you still holdind the rev.
if you feel no difference, the problem is the steering rack it self.
if the steering get softer while you rev up, the problem is the power steering pump.
Good Luck

Hi I am driving vauxhall vectra 1.8, my steering has gone so hard when i tried to turn, and at the same time ignition gone off as well... it happened to me 4 times in one drive... can u please tell me what...

If your power steering is hard, its a sign that your steering pump could be going out. but there are other

more simpler things that can cause this such as a slipping fan belt, broken fan belt, belt tensioner could

be going bad. low on steering fluid. you could also have a pulley that is going bad. good luck!

Hi 2003 CRV looses power (including power steering) when idling. Drives fine when revs are up.

Check the charging system here why if you loose power steering at idle you loose charging capability thats why I want you to check the charging capability you should be at 14vlts the 2003 uses a Idlle air control valve and a good throttle body cleaner may restor you back on the road

My steering wheel fluid is leacking a lot.. from yesterday... I filled up and drived for 20min then the oil is gone... the wheel is very hard to steer.. what would be the problem?

well where ever it's leaking from I'ld assume. You have to look at the vechile and inspect the steering pump, power steering lines, steering box or rack and pinion which I belive you should have. Should be easily noticeable if it's leaking that fast. Can't find it, fill system up, have someone start car turn wheel side to side and while he is doing this look again. Just be safe of moving parts and spraying liquid.

Pajero io it idles and revs for 10 minutes and won't drive or rev

Looks like your Idle Speed Control Servo is playing up. It's a device that controls your idling speed and any load compensation on the engine as well (raising the idle speed when turning the steering, whern turning your lights on...etc). A visit to the dealer should confirm the fault as they can plug in the diagnosis machine to check the proper operation of it. Let us know how you get on. Cheers.

Honda Civic Steering problem

Hi Dan

You did not indicate whether you checked the fluid level for your power steering. Please check this first. Please read your owners manual for specific instructions!

You may be low on fluid.

The next step would be to check your engine belt. The power steering pump is driven by a belt. It is possible that you have a loose or worn belt that is not able to turn the pump sufficiently at idle, but when you rev the engine higher, the pump produces sufficient power. One way to test this is to rev the engine, then try to turn the wheel, see if you notice any difference. Let me know.
