Q: Steering wheel difficult to turn

asked by on

The steering wheel is difficult to turn.

When the steering wheel is difficult to turn the vehicle is unsafe to drive until repairs have been performed. These symptoms usually mean the power steering system has failed. The most common cause of the power steering system failing is the power steering pump or power steering fluid leaks. A qualified technician, like one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose your steering issue and perform the required repairs.
