Problem with the Power Steering!
Additional Details (recommended)
I have a problem with the power steering in my 2001 Acura CL Type S. The
steering seems to be unusually stiff, I have found leaks from the power
steering reservoir. I have changed the power steering pump also but it did
not get any better. When the tires are in ideal condition there is no
problem, but when i steer left or right, there is a noise coming from the
steering pump. The oil level becomes zero after i drive for around 3-4
miles. Is it a problem with the hoses and their connections?? Is there a clog
in the system?? or has my rack and pinion system broken down?? How do
i know when the rack and pinion system is broken down and needs to be
replaced as i dont find any sort of leaks near the rack and pinion. Most of
the oil leaks right underneath the steering pump onto the ground!!
FIX any oil leaks...drain and you can sift for particles of brass or steel.(after the leak gets fixed) unusual play in the mechanism would indicate a replacement needed, no?~~
My mini cooper sounds like a mating pig while Cold...too lazy to have it changed...have become fond of this defect!~
add some zmax to it ..drive..any better?
