Power steering systems can be diagrammed into two chief components. These are the power steering pump and the rack-and-pinion steering gear. The power steering pump sends pressurized fluid into the rack which moves the gear actuating the tie-rods, which moves the wheels in the desired direction. The power steering pump has a low pressure return line and high pressure out one. Read More

Can you tell by looking at your power steering and tell if it needs to be replaced like leaking cracking old looking?
The most common reason for power steer failure is fluid leaks. On power steering pump, you should check behind p/s pulley for leak at the shaft. On the rack and pinion(steering gear) check rubber boots at both ends and check for leaks where steering shaft is connected to rack and pinion input shaft. Check pressure hose at crimp fittings for leaks. Read More

First thing to check is the fluid in your power steering pump. If the fluid level gets low, your pump will squeal or quit working altogether. Once the pump gets overheated (due to low oil level) it will most likely need to be repaired or replaced depending on the vehicle. There are several variables to consider such as serpentine belt, rack-and-pinion or steering box condition, but the first thing mentioned is where you should start. Read More
