whine from power steering
Saturday, September 08, 2012 8:19 AM
was driving yesterday every turn I took whined. just as if there was no fluid got home checked it it was full.
drove the car this morning no whine? until I turned the wheel all the way to the left only, turning it right no whine?

is this my steering rack seals going out or maybe just air got in there some how.

Have you ever changed it? if not suck the fluid out with a turkey baster and refill with good fluid turn it lock to lock a few times and change it out again

Mine started doing this last week. Im thinking the fluid is getting old. Replaced the pump about 2 years ago and fluid was changed then. Will flush the system when I convert to the braided ss lines.

my original pump went about 120k.. but the pump itself didnt break, sheared off the hex drive, and for what I do not know... cause the pump still turns free.




Have a nice day.

mine also started this yesterday. it was tough to turn, so i got home turned it from one side to the other (was tough lol) and i heard a light "click" and felt it too, and now it turns fine, im thinking somthing to do with the rack and pinion . its had a litle click you can feel in the steering for about 6 months now when you turn it to the left.. should i try to change the fluid? i dont think its ever been done :/
