Power steering wobble

Postby tracy primrose » Tue Jun 21, 2005 12:04 pm

Hi guys. Can anyone help? My steering wheel wobbles (pulsing resistance) when trying to turn. :cry: This is worse when resistance is higher (ie turning wheels when car is stationary/moving very slowly).

Help!! What is wrong? And can I fix it myself??? Fluid level is fine.

Thanks!

Have you checked that the tyre presures are correct? Also check if the power steering belt is tight enough.

Could there be a problem with the motor?

Has it been apart lately? You sometimes get this with air in the system
