    Usually the power steering pump is the most common part that will fail in the steering system You can get this estimate and any others at www.repairpal.com/estimator and find a shop here www.repairpal.com/directory

    Is there a way to know for sure what has failed in the steering system without removing the power steering pump or steering secter?
