Something wrong with Power Steering


1. Check that the serpentine belt is still intact and still in position over all the pulleys on the engine including the power steering pump.

2. Check the power steering fluid level. If very low or empty you obviously have a significant power steering fluid leak which could be from a ruptured flexible hose, a leaky hose connection, a leak from the power steering pump itself or leaks from the fluid seals in the steering rack. If the PS pump has been run with very low fluid it will have been pumping air and will be damaged.

3. If the PS pump itself has failed you will obviously lose PS assistance and a bad pump would need to be replaced.

4. Since you have not checked anything on the car no one here can tell you the likely source of your particular PS failure.

5. The steering wheel should still turn but if the car is not moving it will be extremely heavy and difficult to move.without PS assistance so don't attempt to drive it in its present condition.

Steering wheel hard to turn, what should I check for this?


Heavy steering (not caused by neglected low tyre pressures) is usually related to a problem or failure with the power steering pump system.
Items to check on the Power Steering (PS) System
1. Is the serpentine belt slipping on the power steering pump pulley because it is old and worn and needs to be replaced? If it is slipping it will likely be slipping on other pulleys also.

2. You have allowed the power steering fluid to run low and the PS pump is starved and is sucking air. Running the fluid low will damage the PS pump and the steering rack. Low fluid in the PS reservoir is normally a sign of a fluid leak in the system. A leak could be on a system hose, in the PS pump or in the steering rack.

3. The PS pump may have failed, hence cannot produce the required pressure in the PS system, and needs to be replaced.

R pwr strng pumps known to go bad 04 A6 2.7


See how much leteral play there exists in the pump shaft. They can fail, any part can fail. If you release tension on the serpentine belt, grab the power steering pump pulley and move it up and down and in and out- if there is anything more than a slight movement you can feel but cannot see, the pump is the source of the leak through the shaft seal. If the play in the pump drive pulley can move around in various directions visibly, replace the pump.

Power steering fluid low 1994 altima. i noticed leaks under the car. Does the pump leak when going bad or could it just be a hose?


The power steering pump doesnt leak unless the resevoir is cracked. The hoses can be bad or the seals for the steering mechanism could be bad also. have it looked at by a pro

I have a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE and something is wrong with my power steering. It's not low or leaking fluid, the pump and the pressure hose are not leaking, but my power steering does not work unless...


sounds like the power steering pump is the problem. check the drive belt for proper tension and if that looks fine - then replace the pump.
the reason it only works when you step on the gas is because the pump is moving faster then at idle. which is why I think it could just be a loose belt. but again - if the belt looks good and tight, then the pump is bad and needs replacing.

Power steering pump


Whining may be normal.
Pulling fluid from reservoir may be normal.
But I would not expect the fluid to go back to the reservior when you stop.
Is it?
If so, you may have some trapped air or something.
Jack the wheels off the ground, and go lock to lock on the steering, several times, to bleed any air out.

When i turn or when im driving my steering feels different like its heavy. there s also a drip from one of the hoses. the steering isnt real hard to move but when i go to turn its alittle stiff


You could have a problem with your power steering, but some simple things to check is to first see if your power steering pump reservoir is full of fluid. If it is low or empty, your steering will suffer, and worse would be the power steering pump will fail if you run it dry too long. If it is low, fill the reservoir, and wipe down the hoses and pump before you start the vehicle, so you can find out a general area of where the leak is coming from.

Power steering rack leaking


If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!
