Power Steering Hard At Low Rpm

Recommended Posts

My 1990 LS400 idles at about 600 rpm after it warms up. When the car is cold the Power steering works fine but once it warms up it gets extremely hard to turn. But as soon as i slightly step on the gas upon acceleration it gets soft again. It seems like there is no pressure running through the pump at low rpms. It makes for a real tough time to parralel park.

Anybody have and ideas?

also might be the impeller inside the pump going

meanign that it is not moving enough fliud around

if it was at cold and hot then i would say the pressure solenoid ont the rack is gone which is not telling the pump to send more pressure
