Power Steering problems
#1
Hello all,
I have a 56 plate 2.0 hdi, and the power steering only works when driving.
When stopped but on tick over steering very hard.
I've had the van 18 month and only started to do this the last couple of days.
Fluid level is ok any ideas?

Cheers Jay

Try draining and refilling the system with a good fluid.Forte PAS fluid additive also works well.Try before condemning the system.Also check the belt is OK.

Thanks,
I have looked at the belt seems tight enough.
Will try draining.

I found if the belt's not tight enough it will scream at you.

The belt doesn't wine or screech,

Are you sure your steering is working on the move? most vehicles lack of power steering is not noticed when once moving (old enough to remember when power steering was only fitted to Jags/ Citroen DS etc)

Yes it is working when the revs go up. My first car was a vauxhall viva for £60, so I can remember cars with no power steering or brakes Smile

I've drained and put fresh fluid in, but it's still the same. Can't understand why it works when you rev it up?

Does seem a bit odd. Perhaps the power steering pump is on its way out. I don't suppose the belt could slip and not screech could it?
