Power steering problems

Application: 1997 Ford Ranger V6 4.0 4wd

(Can be applied to any other non-rack and pinion steering system)


Lack of power steering
After a turn wheels not returning to center
Hard steering

Common related components to check:

Power steering pump ( check for low fluid )
Leaking power steering hoses
Alignment issues ( caster, camber, toe-in, toe-out )
Non-lubercated components ( ball joints, tie rod ends )
Steering gear box

A lot of times if you are having issues with your power steering probably just a lack of power steering fluid. One big way to tell is a loud whining or howling type noise coming from the pump. Then there is the case of a leaking power steering hose, which is usually the high pressure hose side that ends up needing replacing. Non-lubricated dry components can put extra wear on other parts including the power steering pump. If you are having other steering issues such as the steering not centering after a turn is most likely a problem with the alignment or the steering gear box. Whether your issue is when you make a left turn or right turn.
