Q: Power steering will not work at all

asked by on

While marketing a 90 Degree turn out of a driveway my power steering stoped completely . I have replaced fluid . Turned wheel completely to the right and left several times . Fluid resivor is full but changed fluid anyways. There is no whining. Cannot turn wheel at all if truck is parked

My car has 101200 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to have the power steering pump pressure tested to see if the pump can produce pressure at all. If it does not produce pressure then replace the pump and fluid.
