Need some help / Hydraulic P.S.

685 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  1Jeff
Parking lot maneuver, turning the steering wheel 2/3 to 7/8 to the lock I lose power assist. It can be turned to the lock, just NO assist. Had it to the dealer under extended warranty diagnosed as bad steering gear. They replaced it, I picked it up tonight and there is no difference. Anyone with hydraulic steering experience this? Is this normal?

Thanks in advance for any input!

Could a piece of plastic got in the reservoir? Reaching, but have had it happen before on old vehicle that the protective plastic on bottle of PS fluid fell(?) into reservoir and would obstruct flow at the lower end of as when almost fully turned, made slow turns a bear.
I wasn't talking about my HC, it has electric PS. This was an older Dodge with regular belt driven pump.
