    Question Power Steering problem???

    Hi,
    I'm a new user to this forum. I've just recentley purchased a 2002 LS 1800 vectra. I have one problem with the car which I think could be dangerous.
    When driving there is a faint whirring noise which sounds like its coming from around the front offside wheelarch and the steering is OK. But, from time to time the noise stops and the power steering fails and it becomes very difficult to steer!
    Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

    Thanks, Graeme.

    That does sound like the electric hydraulic pump may be failing for some reason - do you get any warning light come on? (Even a battery warning light as im pretty sure when the alternator stops charging the steering pump stops too)

    i do indeed.. and stop driving the car..

    the noise you can hear is very likely to be the power steering's electrical pump..the sound is located in the right place..

    Get the car checked out at a garage before much longer..the Pump is only avaliable at VX at the moment...

    Oh, and to the forum by the way..
