SOURCE: zzr1100 when riding at very low speed steering is twitchy.

you need to check your tyre and it may also require balancing as it is a big bike.The bearing do not normally cause this but it is a good and safe thing to check it.

Your power steering pump is starting to give out. The part will run less than $100, labor will be outrageous. I suggest getting a shop manual and doing it yourself if you have some basic tools and mechanical knowledge, it's not terribly difficult.

Problem with power steering on my Ram 2500, 2006, hard to turn at low speed and when stop must give it some gas ti rev higher


I would flush the steering box really well and re-fill with fresh fluid. If you can get to the lines, it is not too hard to do. There are some additives available for power steering fluid, but the use of them is debatable.

Were is the steering pump sensor on pontiac grand prix gt 2005


This is a very complex system an if you don't work on these systems all the time , I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop that does !
The Variable Effort Steering (VES) system or MAGNASTEER?® Varies the amount of effort required to steer the vehicle as vehicle speed changes. At low speeds, the system provides minimal steering effort for easy turning and parking Maneuvers. Steering effort is increased at higher speeds to provide firmer steering (road feel) and directional stability. The Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) controls a bi-directional magnetic rotary actuator located in the steering rack and pinion. The EBCM varies the steering assist by adjusting the current flow through the actuator to achieve a given level of effort to steer the vehicle. The VES system accomplishes this by adding or subtracting torque on the input shaft to the rack and pinion. The main component of the system is an electromagnetic actuator, which consists of a multiple-pole ring-style permanent magnet, a pole piece, and an electromagnetic coil assembly. The VES system uses the ABS wheel speed sensor inputs to determine vehicle speed. When the EBCM senses wheel speed, it commands a current to the VES actuator that is most appropriate for each speed. The EBCM commands current from negative two amps to positive three amps to the actuator, which is polarized. At low speeds, a negative current is commanded, which assists steering. At medium speeds no current is commanded and steering is assisted by hydraulics only. At high speeds, a positive current is commanded, which creates steering resistance. Ignition voltage and ground are provided through the EBCM. The EBCM has the ability to detect malfunctions in the actuator or the circuits to the actuator. Any malfunctions detected will cause the system to ramp to zero amps and steering will be assisted by hydraulics only and setting a DTC - diagnostic trouble code !

2005 hummer H2 steering hard to turn & brakes pedal soft at low speed or stop position only


check power steering pump . have a pressure test done on the system. Check wheel alignment and readjust if you have wide tyres on. As for the brakes I suggest you start with a bleed of the system starting at the longest line first and finish at the shortest

Shakes, steering wheel hard to turn. RPM's at 2 when going 15mph.


Have you checked the power steering fluid? Do the belts squeel when you turn the steering wheel?
I know this might sound silly but are your air pressures in your tyres correct? Low air pressure will cause your steering to shake at speed and it will be hard to turn at low speed.
I hope this helps,
Scott.

The steering in my 98 Buick Century is hard to turn at low speeds. Is this a steering pump issue or the rack and pinion?


Your PS pump is fine.

This vehicle has:

Variable-assist power steering: A power steering system that uses valves and speed sensors to vary the amount of steering assist according to engine or road speed. At slow speeds more steering assist is delivered and steering the wheels is easier; necessary for parking, etc.. At higher speeds, steering assist is reduced and more steering effort is required to steer the car, giving the driver greater feel of the road. Also known as Speed-sensitive power steering.

Loss of current to the magnetic coils would cause a loss of power assist at low speed. Coil resistance can be checked with an ohmmeter, and should read about two ohms. An infinite (open) reading indicates a bad coil (requires replacing the rack since the coils are not serviceable). Checking for shorts between both sides of the coil assembly and rack housing is also recommended.

Best wishes
