2009 Cadillac STS = After 5 minutes of driving the power steering stops. If engine is then shut off & restarted power steering resumes briefly. GM Dealer ran a scan but nothing turned-up. This first started 2 weeks ago and has happened about 12 times, with the intervals between loss of power steering becoming shorter. Any suggestions?


Replace the power steering pump & electrical motor. If the GM dealer scanned the steering system ECU (Electronic Control Unit) and nothing turned-up, then the steering pump electrical motor overheats and stopped. After engine shut off & restart, t ... Cadillac STS-V

Key stuck in ignition, no electrical power. I have a 2005 Volvo S40. When I put the key in the ignition I was able to turn it past 0, but upon doing that all power was lost and I was unable to return the key back to the 0 position and the automatic shifter locked in the park position. I have tried moving the steering wheel to all positions and also tried to jump start the vehicle. I am at a loss for what to do and there is no local dealership for me to consult with.

I have a oil leak in my Cadillac 2007 DTS. It drops "1%" oil life according to the dash appx every week. Jiffy Lube mechanics told me it needs immediate attention but they don't fix leaks. I didn't want to spend dealer price of labor to fix something that was simple enough to get done by a "good" mechanic. Is an oil leak and power steering leak a very detailed repair job for my car that I shouldn't let anyone but a Cadillac expert attempt to repair? It's usually twice the price to get work don

I have a 1995 ford f250 with the 7.3L diesel. The vehicle makes a large sucking noise when cold, and the engine loses power. when the rpm's pick up, it regains power and drives well. Problem goes away when the truck warms up. Also experiencing an intermittent loss of power steering, which seems to be tied to applying the brakes. When you are at a stop light, the brake light goes on, when you move, it goes out. Loss of power steering occurrs at these times. (sometimes)


The problem is due to a lack of compression in the engine when the truck is cold, try using the engine block heater more, or allow more time for the truck to warm up. ... 1995 Ford F250

I have a 1994 Cadillac DeVille and it has a very loud whining noise which seems to getting louder. I've been told it is the power steering unit and not to worry about it. Don't you think it is advisable to have it replaced? I'm afraid some day the power steering unit will fail and I'll be without power steering but am told that will not happen. Please advise.

2002 GMC 2500HD Duramax No power brakes or power steering My son drove home last night, and noticed the power brake pedal pressure was getting stiff. I went out today and found a total loss of power in both the brakes and the steering. Initially I thought it was just cold (it was -3 F when I woke up), but persisted after warming up. Fluid levels are o.k. and belt wear and tension are o.k. Got ideas? Let me know. Thanks

When I start the car and start to drive I hear a loud whining noise from under the hood. (Really annoying) The problem seems worse when the steering wheel is turned. I suspect the power steering pump but fear it could be trany problems. I am getting pretty dramatic oil pressure fluctuations (oil sending unit?) but fluids are good, no warning lights, no loss of power and no apparent steering issues. 125k miles, runs great, well maintained but I am stumped on this. any help appreciated. thanks


Might be a louse belt, air in the steering rocker arm system, a bad CW joint, or anything else. Try to locate the source of the noise first. ... 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Have 2 Hummers ( both 1995) that have a Hydrualic 'boost' loss to steering when brakes applied. Steering power increases if I flip the throttle which allows me to turn the wheel when throttle is hit. Brakes also lose some power. Not noticiable at speeds over 15mph, only on slow turns. Fluid levels for both systems are normal and no leaks from the lines. Is there a proprtioner valve that controls pressure from the hydrualic pump that may have failed and if so, where would it be found ? Denni


At the back of the pump where the high pressure line attaches. I'm not saying thats your problem, but thats where the valve is. I think if you disconnect it, it should have full boost. ... Hummer H1

Low voltage can cause a lot of the car's systems to malfunction. Suspect your alternator has failed and you are running on a low battery. Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running (no jumper cables). It should be at least 14 volts. ... 2006 Pontiac G6
