What is a Power Steering Pump and Rack?
The power steering pump and rack work in unison to steer the car by the steering wheel.
The power steering pump is a hydraulic system that is driven by the car's engine using a belt and pulley system, letting you turn the steering wheel with ease. It turns the steering column that leads to the steering rack.
It would be difficult to turn the steering wheel if the hydraulic steering pump wasn't working, especially at low speeds.
What are the Symptoms of a Failing Steering Rack?
A failing steering rack could result in irreparable damage to your car if it isn't checked immediately.
Signs to look out for are:
- Your vehicle drifts left or right could be a steering rack issue
- Grinding noises when steering the car might have an overheated steering rack
- Power steering fluid giving off a burnt oil smell could be an overheating steering pump
- Power steering fluid leak would make your steering hard to turn. Try topping up the power steering fluid to see if it rectifies the issue
Can you Drive with a Broken Steering Pump?
If you find that it's more difficult to turn your steering wheel when driving, it could be a sign of a broken steering pump.
It's important that you get your car to a mechanic quickly or if you're a dab hand under the bonnet, you could get a high-quality reliable replacement steering part from us at GSF Car Parts.
