Started with a fluid leak.
High pressure hose and pump were replaced.
NO power steering after that, leak was still there.
Steering rack and another new pump went in.
Still had a leak. And power steering only worked when the accelerator was pushed.
New p/s cooler hose and another new pump.
Finally no leaking but the pump whine was still there and the steering was tight and only loosened up when the accelerator was pushed.
Blew through another hose. (Don't know which one) Same story. New hose, new
I'm almost $2500 in and want to scream!
No one knows what is wrong with this car. It finally isn't leaking but the pump whine is the same as it was in the beginning. Louder on acceleration and louder still on tight corners. P/S doesn't seem to be working at all without pushing the accelerator. Steering is on point when driving but even after 5 new pumps I'm cranking the stereo to drown out the whine.
I'm out of $$ and I'm pretty sure the mechanic doesn't want to see me back.
have the same problem?
