POWER STEERING ISSUE

2003 Nissan 350Z

Steering problem
2003 Nissan 350Z 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 34100 miles

i BOUGHT THIS 350Z TRACK LAST WEEK, IT SEEMS STEERING IS REALLY HARD WHEN THE RPM IS LOW BUT WHILE DRIVING LIGHT AS A FEATHER. (WHILE MAKING A SLOW TURN IT ALSO GETS STIFF). NO NOISE OF ANY KIND COMING UNDER THE HOOD. I SPOKE TO THE OLD OWNER HE TOLD ME THAT IS PERFECTLY NORMAL. I DONT THINK SO, WHY, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO HANDLE WHEN PARALLEL PARKING.
WHAT COULD BE WRONG? PS PUMP OR RACK & PINION? I HAVE CHECKED THE FLUID AND BELT, EVERTHING SEEMS FINE EVEN THE FLUID IS CLEAN AND NO METALLIC PARTICULES INSIDE THE RESEVIOUR. WHAT IS THIS THEN?

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

I would be suspecting a faulty pump, you will need to go see a steering specialist and get a pump oil pressure test done, start here.
