how do I fix the power steering on a 2008 mazda tribute

Asked by Dec 26, 2013 at 03:26 PM about the 2008 Mazda Tribute

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

At idle and in park, the steering wheel would shake and vibrate. When I turned the car back on, I had no power steering. The owner's manual was no help.

Sounds to me like two different problems. The shaking steering wheel is likely broken motor mount(s). As for power steering, I would check the fluid level, and if low, look for obvious leaks around the pump, lines, and rack. If no leaks, you may need to replace the power steering pump.

The problem is a steering control module $1100.00 Mazda is the only one who sells this part.
