    Default power steering failure?

    there is a constant whine/whirring sound when the engine is on, as soon as i turn it off, it sounds like something is still whirring away for about 2/3 seconds then stops,

    anyway when the steering is full lock and i turn the engine off, the noise stops for about half a second then all of a sudden the whirring comes back and pulls the steering the opposite direction really hard which i cant overcome,

    so im suspecting a power steering problem,

    any idea how to get this whirring to stop is it serious?

    i dont think its low fluid level as the power steering light has not come on,

    could it be the motor or a return valve or something?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Exclusive

    Engine : 1.8vvt (Z18XER)

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 58000

    Default

    Just a thought as a layman - sounds though the steering dosn't know where it is ? Must be some sort of steering position sensor problem ?
