LOOSE POWER STEERING PRESSURE SWITCH AND LOW FLUID

Asked by Oct 26, 2016 at 08:41 PM about the 2005 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I noticed this in my 1.8t. I was wondering if this could cause weird rev
spiking and shifting issues. It basically had no power steering fluid. I
replaced the pressure switch and added fluid, and so far it seems to be
fine.

But curious of how a power steering issue can affect the engines rpm's and
therefore shift points.
