POWER STEERING

2007 GMC Acadia • 6 cylinder AWD Automatic • 92 miles

I have a 2007 GMC ACadia. Out of no where the sterring is really tight but only when I apply the brakes. Such as parking or turning. If I am turning and the gas is applied its fine. The power steering fluid it at the right level.

If the power assist comes back when you speed up the engine a little, suspect a weak pump. That seems to be a common problem.

Check for a slipping belt also. Watch while you turn wheel when stopped/park.
