PostSubject: Low Speed Power Steering Lock up/ Failure   Wed Nov 14, 2012 7:38 am

Anyone ever experience low speed power steering lock up or failure- THEN regain it moments later?
Only occurs when I take a turn low speed into a street,parking lot- when a bit of standing water is present in rain conditions.
Obviously water might be playing a role, but shouldnt be. Splashing etc...

What to look for and trouble shoot? I am not aiming for standing water, but this problem occurs durring wet conditions, so I want to make sure I hunt it down and correct it.
NO problem with dry conditions as of yet.

Appreciate some input on this problem. Thanks
Pete

PostSubject: 95 9C1 power steering loss   Wed Nov 14, 2012 9:15 am

Yes I have, on only one 95 9C1 though. Most definitely if the car has just come out of a puddle, or sometimes after a damp stretch with rain, and the car has been sitting through it for a while. Once the belt and pulleys dry off after a warm-up , I'll never get it again, unless of course I hit a large puddle of water. I've changed the tensioner assy, the belt. and it still happens sometimes. Funny thing is I haven't had the problem with the other lower mileage cars. So this leads me to the conclusion that this car, with high mileage probably has a glazed surface on the PS pulley surface causing a slip when damp. One of these days I'll get to swapping it out. -Joe

Check for leaks around the belt. Look at the belt to see if it is super shiny, if so replace. Also, look at your belt tensioner when the car is running. If it is jumping around alot, it's no good.
