Make sure there is no leak in the reserve tank...can cause it to freeze or tighten up...also a cause for the grinding or squealing noise.

Most modern cars use power assisted steering. When the engine starts it also runs a power steering pump that builds hydraulic pressure for the system. If the engine has not started there is no pressure in the steering system and the steering feels very heavy.

Heavy steering on 1989lotus esprit


When is the last time the front end has been lubricated, just a thought. My 1991 Lotus Esprit SE also has heavy steering which is normal for these racing suspension's. Its to compensate for over steering, which is easier to do with power steering.

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

Power steering becomes heavy. i need to use more Strength to control it


check drive belt for the power steering and check belt tension. Check oil level in reservoir. Have a pressure test done on the power steering pump to check for stuck relief valves.

Poor steering on my 1995 Toy Camry. How can I troubleshoot that?


Have you checked the power steering container, to make sure you have power steering fluid in it?
The steering will be feeling heavy, and hard to steer the car, if the power steering fluid is too low, or empty.

I have noticed that at times my steering on my kia sedona lx 2004 gets stiff like the power steering is gone .. as well my coolant levels are fine but i have no heat nor is the a/c blowing cold air .. what...


Some modern cars have an electrically driven pump to supply high pressure oil to operate the power steering. However, most cars have an oil pump for the steering which is turned by a belt from the crankshaft pulley. If the belt is loose or slipping, heavy steering will be the result, especially noticable at low speeds. Check belt for tightness, and check oil level is not low, possibly due to a leak?

Can you tell me why my volvo 850 t5 estate the steering is very heavy, plenty of steering fluid? sudenly becomes heavy, will then go back to normal then heavy again.


sounds like your power steering is failing, get it checked at a garage asap, steering is important when going fast :), probably needs steering wheel taken apart and power steering components checked for wear/damage.

This does not solve your problem, but perhaps power in numbers will help. I have had 2 steering racks replaced on my 2006 TL. Acura is not claiming any defects, but the steering is extremely difficult to turn. Hardly even feels like I have power steering. I'm upset because I had to pay for the 2nd rack just 14 months after the 1st one was replaced. I expected more from the Acura brand!
