2000 Pontiac Grand Am 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 94600 miles
This is our 2nd car. During the winter it got stuck in the snow. While I was doing the forward/reverse and steering side to side to get traction thing the power steering stopped working. It's still filled with fluid, makes none of the sounds a power steering pump normally makes when going bad. One person told me possibly I'd either gotten air into the steering box or had caused fluid to fill both sides of the pistons. He suggested drianing and refilling it would fix this. I have no idea however how to drain a power steering unit. Until this happened I didn't even know there was such a thing as a steering box. Any advice of trying this or how to do it before I buy a new power steering pump and or steering box. Thanks, Marvin
have the same problem?
