Q: Heavy steering

asked by on

Hi I have heavy steering on my refrigeration van I changed the power steering pump and the belt tensioner fluid is fine can anyone help??

My car has 100 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. Although we don’t service commercial vans like your Transit, I would recommend having your power steering system bled by a professional commercial or diesel mechanic; as it’s quite possible that you have air bubbles or an obstruction within the hydraulic lines.
