With the simple construction of the pool cleaners, usually a lack of movement means that there is something jammed in the impeller or the drive system. Check for obstructions in the wheels, axles, etc. and make sure that your debris chamber is clear.

Check that the belt that drives the power steering pump hasn't broke, then check the fluid level in the power steering resevoir, If all is okay then most likely the power steering pump has failed.

It is most likely you just turned the wheel to the farthest limit of its travel, and the power assist cutout at that point.

Check your fluid level to make sure its up to where it should be.

If fluid is fine, I wouldn't worry about it...it is fine and a normal occurance.

Makes a noise when i drive and gets louder when i turn the wheel. i think its low power steering fluid. the wheel is harder to turn now.


Check the fluid, if it's low put some in it, if it still does it, the power steering pump might be on it's way out.

Steering system


It very possible that the new power steering pump is defective. I would take it back for a possible warranty issue.

I'm confused about the part where the water pump damaged the power steering pump. The power steering pump doesn't require any cooling from the water pump. The power steering pump only needs the belt to run it properly.
