Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** you for the question. If the system does not provide assitance at idle then the pump may be going out or the belt may be loose. If the belt is fine and if the pump is putting out good pressure then the spool valve in the steering box may be clogged. Some of the time flushing out the power steering fluid will correct this. In other cases the gear box needs to be replaced. I typically also recommend checking to make sure that none of the joints in the front end are binding either. I hope this helps. let me know if you need more assistance.
