Q: Q: Power steering not working.

asked by on

The power steering seems to be broken.

First thing to check would be to make sure the belt is still attached to the power steering pump and that the fluid is at the level mark, typically low fluid level indicates a leak somewhere in the system. I would set an appointment with YourMechanic so a certified mechanic can diagnose and repair your power steering back to new.
