What caused my powering steering to go out after making a U-turn? 2007 GMC Sierra

Asked by Jul 25, 2015 at 06:35 PM about the 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE1 Crew Cab

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As I was attempting to make a u-turn when my power steering went out. I thought my
truck had turned off because that's exactly what it felt like when I tried to make the turn. I
can no longer drive my truck it's too hard to turn. There's plenty of power steering fluid.
What caused the powering to go out?

One of the valves in the rack and pinion most likely got stuck. Has it started working again ?

You can put some Lucas Power Steering Fluid and Stop Leak to the power steering pump. It not only stops leaks but also lubricants the seals and valves in the system.
