What is a power steering pump?

The power steering pump pressurizes and circulates power steering fluid through the power steering hydraulic system, allowing the steering wheel to turn with greater ease.

How does the power steering pump work?

Power steering pumps create hydraulic pressure, and a hose transfers the pressure to the steering gear, where it can be used to assist in turning the wheels. Another hose then returns the used fluid to be pressurized.

This process happens continuously, and the power steering pump pressurizes fluid any time the engine is running.

What are the symptoms related to a bad power steering pump?

If you have a power steering fluid leak, you'll likely see a puddle of it on the ground under your car. If the fluid level gets too low, the car will get harder to steer, especially at low speeds. The power steering pump may also start making a screeching noise when you turn the steering wheel.

Can I drive with a power steering pump problem?

A vehicle can be driven with leaking power steering components, but you'll need to make sure there's enough fluid for the system to function. If the fluid is leaking fast, have the car towed to a repair shop to prevent damage to the power steering system.

How often do power steering pumps need to be replaced?

In most vehicles, the power steering system will last well over 100,000 miles before any failures occur. Mechanical issues and leaks in the power steering system are usually avoidable if you stick to the maintenance schedule in your owner's manual. But because of the pressure in the system, parts of it will eventually wear out.
