Power steering issue - 02 Forester
Posted 02 August 2013 - 01:10 PM
Im Having issues with my power steering on start up in the morning. The issue is apparent only until the engine warms. Symptoms are difficulty turning steering as if there is resistance, particularly on full lock. Turning the wheel feels notchy, then frees up after 10-20 seconds. I have watched the power steering pump with someone turning the wheel (with engine running) and it seems the pump cuts in and out momentarily (causing the notchy feeling).
Is it the pump failing? Or is the belt lacking tension/ in need of replacement? Return hose to power steering pump leaking slightly? The fluid level is fine and remaining constant.
Any help much appreciated!
