but if he has power steering installed and not working, it's actually harder than a car not equipped with power steering to begin with.wvturbo2 said:im with the other guy.... there is not really any need for powersteering.....I know i dont have it lol
Absolutely correct! What some people will do, though, is remove the pump and cap off the steering rack where the lines go in and out. While not an ideal solution it might get someone by until they can fix things right.Gairloch said:Removing the powersteering pump does not eliminate hydraulic steering from your car. You don't get any more steering feedback (probably less), you have to work harder to turn the wheel and I can't imagine that it's very good for the hydraulic steering rack
If you want manual steering you have to change out the rack as well as eliminate the pump.
