    Question Z30DT estate power steering issue

    I hope I haven't missed a similar thread on this issue, I did look!

    I have a 2007 Z30DT Elite estate with 96k on the clock. Great car but I noticed a few months back that every now and again the power steering would go very heavy and then sort itself within a few seconds. As a precautionary I got the power steering fluid changed, as I have had the car 3 years and not done it despite full services, and it seemed okay for abit but now it is getting heavier and makes a whining noise, especially under load (as in turned nearly fully to either direction) or when car is cold. It seems to be getting worse so can I have some advice, could it be the pump that's dying?

    For background info the tyres are 4 months old (Bridgestone Weather Control), full Bilstein B12 Pro kit fitted within last month and M-Tec brakes all round in April. No warning lights are shown, nor codes coming up, so any help would be appreciated as I don't want to be chucking £s at things just to check.

    Thanks everyone in advance

    look in this one, regardless of the engine the problem and symptoms are the same as yours. I suggest you just start with the easiest one and work your way through the list.

    Thanks very much. I am away until the 29th but will be checking it all then and will update the thread then, hopefully, diagnosed.
