This could be the problem. When this system came out in the 97's they had a lot of problems with them. Question, does it really get wild steering going down the highway? Owners said it would get really hard to steer then get real loose. Good luck. Normally just when I am stopped trying to back up or park

NV7 is with Variable Effort Steering. N40 is with Non-Variable Effort Steering. Check the "Service Parts Identification" sticker for your car. Variable Effort Steering will have an electronic control valve on one side of the power steering pump with an electrical connector. The Variable Effort Steering "EVO" valve adjust the amount of power steering assist. It is intended to make the steering stiffer at higher speeds. This helps prevent the vehicle from wandering at highway speeds.

The only dangers that might arise from driving a vehicle with a failing power steering pump is burning up/breaking the belt that is driving the pump IF and ONLY IF the pump seizes up. The other problem you might have is the increased effort to steer the car. As long as the increased effort while driving is not a problem you can at least drive it to a service station to get it repaired.

The problem with this concern could easily be the steering gear. The power steering pump is responsible for providing fluid pressure but the steering gear will provide steering assist with the fluid pressure depending on steering wheel input. with the front wheels suspended and the engine off with the pittman arm disconnected from the steering gear the wheels turned left to right by hand at the tires should turn with the same effort both ways. if not, the concern is within the suspension (ball joints) or steering someplace. If the steering effort is the same suspect a steering gear fault.

Same as any car with power steering. You can continue to steer the car but with increased effort.

Generally, a power steering pump that activates when you turn the wheel, pipes to and from the ram, and the ram cylinder. The function is to make steering less of an effort for the driver.

When the power steering fluid is low, you may experience some, all, or none, of the following symptoms:squealing or buzzing sounds associated with steering action.sticking or 'jumpy' steering wheel.lack of steering power (more effort required to turn the steering wheel).

There are more than one. The computer card that controlls the air suspension as well as the variable effort power steering is located in front of and slightly below the glove compartment. You can remove the glove box and the reach in and access it.

it is located underneath your drivers side dash area. do not tear apart your steering column, not necessary. unscrew 2 screws in middle of dash and pops out with some effort. you will see it and has 2 bolts to unscrew it. one on top. one in the botton....

Power steering greatly reduces the effort needed to turn the wheels of a car. Especially with front-drive cars, the extra weight and effort can be too much for many drivers. Although not a major concern at highway speeds, low speed turning and manuevering (such as in a parking space) are much easier to do. Most power steering systems provide less and less 'boost' the faster you go.

I converted my power steering equipped 84 Firebird to manual steering by using a manual steering box from a Chevy S10 pick-up. It was a simple bolt in replacement. And of course you have to use a shorter accessory drive belt after removing the pump. Steering effort when car is moving is not bad at all. Parking is another story, especially with 245/50 tires!

Depending on the model of vehicle, steering may require more effort due to aeration of the fluid and you may also hear a whining noise from the p/s pump.

The conventional steering mechanism contains so many internal gears.Obviously the friction effect is also high.In order to negotiate a turn, the manual effort required to overcome friction effect is also high.Which might result in accidents.Added to this,the friction between wheels and its contact surface is also high. The above stated effects are mitigated by means of power steering mechanism.Where it uses little manual effort and uses working medium as pneumatic(air), fluids, bellows (to retrieve its original state).

A customer notices difficult steering and rapid steering wheel return. What might be a possible cause?The rear suspension may have excessive positive casterThe front suspension may have excessive positive casteThe rear suspension may have excessive positive camber.The front suspension may have excessive positive camber.

This is a very simple problem, alnost certainly a homework problem, and you should make an effort to answer it yourself.

Way up under the dash, hard to get to but doable with a little effort. They are on each side of the steering column attached to a bracket. They are round, short cylinder shaped with 2 wires attached to each one, The one on the left controls the turn signals. One on right controls emergency flashers.
