Q: Steering wheel hard to turn in 2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser

asked by on

My steering wheel is hard to turn left or right.

A: Hi there. If it is hard to turn in either d...

Hi there. If it is hard to turn in either direction, then it may have a bad power steering pump. I typically start by checking the engine belt and the fluid in the reservoir. If these items are fine then the pump is more than likely bad. I would typically replace the pump and flush all of the fluid from the system. If I could not tell for sure, I would test the pressure coming from the pump. If you need to have someone look at this, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose your steering issue and make the necessary repairs.
