Question about Cars & Trucks
Steering pump out for third time
1. Heat oxidizes power steering fluid, causes pump failure. Unlikely to overheat this time of year but there could be a restriction on pressure side of system causing it to overheat.
2. Many mechanics use "power steering fluid". Some systems require specialty fluids, Mitsubishi and VW come to mind. Google the type of car you have and power steering fluid and see what it comes up with. If wrong fluid has been used make sure it is flushed out and new fluid is added.
3. Chinese parts and or bad installaitons. It happens.
Hope this helps.
