My van is having a hard time turning, would this be the power steering pump going out and if so how can I fix my 1998 Mercury villager


It could be or the steering rack . The power steering system uses a CII type power steering pump (3A674) and a power rack and pinion steering gear.

If you never replaced either of these parts before suggest you take to a ASE certified repair shop .
Pump Flow and Pressure Tests Before performing pump flow and pressure test, complete the following checks for conditions which could cause loss of power assist. Take corrective action if necessary.
  1. Check power steering oil reservoir (3A697) for proper fluid level.
  1. Check tires for correct air pressure.
  1. Check drive belt (8620) for proper tension.
  1. Check power steering pump (3A674) for correct model and vehicle application.
  1. Check for correct size power steering pump pulleys (3A733) on power steering pump and engine.
  1. Check entire system for damage. Replace parts, if necessary.
If the above items are correct, or have been corrected, and the loss of assist still exists, test power steering pump flow and pressure to determine whether the trouble is in the power steering pump , power rack and pinion steering gear or hoses.

Sudden Loss of power steering whilst driving. No symptoms, noises, etc. before hand. Power steering fluid level is normal.


is the drive belt of the power steering pump intact, if the loss of assistance was immediate and the fluid level is okay it is almost certain you have lost the belt , or the tension in it has drastically dropped

Is this as simple as the auxiliary belt broken? Is there a loss of fluid from the steering rack? (check both the hydraulic fluid and the belt) If there is fluid loss you should see evidence

2004 RX 330: intermittent power steering loss, hard to turn, so...


I think you may have a problem with your electric assisted power steering motor. Is the loss in power only when your are making sharp turns to the right or left?
Do you hear any load noises or squeling sounds?
You should have it inspected, Don't want you to lose control while driving.

Power steering loss, overheating, dash board power


It sounds to me like the serpetine belt broke, DO NOT continue to drive it. The water pump (for engine cooling), the power steering pump, and the alternator (electrical system) are no longer operating. Have it towed to a shop or have someone put a new belt on it.

Power steering no power ?


Three possible causes that I can think of:
1. The belt for the power steering pump broke.
2. The power steering pump itself failed.
3. Loss of power steering fluid.
Best to find a local shop to deal with this. The power steering system may need servicing if adding power steering fluid doesn't work.
