    Default Power steering lumpy

    I have an intermittant problem with the Power Steering going lumpy then very heavy, it comes & goes without a pattern. The fluid level is correct and there are no leaks. The electrical connections appear tight but the veh has recently had a new alternator so there has been activity in the area. Does anyone have a wiring diagram so I can check the cables are ok?

    It may still be your alternator? If it is not giving out enough current, it is possible even for new or re-con alternators to fail quickly. Especially as the fault has appeared since the new alternator was fitted.

    What does the Power Steering Pump sound like?
    It should be almost silent
    However, if you can hear it when turning the steering wheel then the main bearing is nearing the end of its life; eventually it will fail, but this can take up to 2 years
