hi all I have a 2003 terracan 2.9 auto which I have owned for 5 months. the power steering goes very heavy and is hard to turn when the car is being slowly manoeuvred. any ideas what the problem is. many thanks.
If it's only when you are moving slowly, then my guess would be either needing a front end lube, low level of power steering fluid, or a bad pump. If the belt was loose it would be squealing when you forced the steering wheel.
many thanks for your reply. the car has do 40k miles since new and has had a full service, axles oils changed and steering flushed through and new fluid put in. will get pump checked many thanks. Tippy
