    Default power steering issue

    Hi, I think there is an issue with my power steering on my 2.8t

    when its idling if i turn lock to lock it sounds like its whining a bit so i checked the power steering fluid and it appears to be frothing up.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    james

    Sounds like the fluid wants topping up or replacing - level could be so low that air is getting in hence the frothing. Wants sorting quickly or you could knak the pump.

    iirc electrofluidic power steering (or Electric Hydraulic Power Steering ) self bleeds on full lock hence the noise and the bubbles

    really ...are you sure .... they do in the VXR ??

    i appreciate the suspension is different as its got IDS but the steering rack would be the same

    and listed on the specification of the face lifted Signum as well

    http://www.vauxhall-cars.co.uk/range...all_signum.php

    Mechanical

    • Lowered and uprated VXR sports suspension
    • Interactive Driving System Plus (IDS2-plus) with Continuous Damping Control
    • Sport Button:- When Pressed improves the responses of both the steering, suspension and throttle giving the driver crisper initial acceleration and sharper, more direct turn-in when cornering.
    • Front ventilated disc brakes - 345mm diameter
    • Rear ventilated disc brakes - 292mm diameter
    • Pagid brake pads
    • Front and rear brake callipers in blue
    • Electro-hydraulic power-assisted steering (EHPS)
    • Lightweight MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension with gas-pressure dampers


    mine has it

    OK. you want to argue it out????

    What is the black tank on the left hand side next to brake fluid?? i'll give you a clue it says Power steering fluid only on the cap.

    The next clue IT HAS A POWER STEERING PUMP DRIVEN BY A BELT!

    next clue. cannot connect to EHPS module - probably because it hasn't got one!!!

    DOH!!!

    I'm not a plant engineer for nothing!! (granted i asked for help, but only cos i hadn't come across power steering fluid frothing up, especially in an excavator!)

    Might be a good idea to put more facts up when you first post up then we would not be playing a guessing game lol
