First and foremost, I wish to give a quick shout-out to the community with my previous issues. Keep up the great work.
New issue on hand. Was driving home and have made it to the last mile. All of the sudden, it got incredibly hard to steer. At the onset of the problem, I did a mental check of previous troubleshooting steps. I have already have replaced the power steering pump and inspected the pressure line (I can come back to replace it later on if need be). As I was wrestling the car back in the driveway, the engine started to overheat.
I began to research the problem. From what I gather, the issue of the hard steering was deducted to a bad rack. I have the part on order already. However, I need to investigate the overheating aspect as well. Could it be due to the rack's malfunction, or could it be another issue entirely?
Replaced power steering pump.
Inspected power steering pressure line on both ends.
Replaced radiator reservoir and hose as it was cracked. And that did resolve the issue. However, with it overheating due to the steering issue, I have to cover my apples.
I look forward to hearing your wise words.
