Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe we had trouble with hard steering and we replace the power steering pump the rack and Pinion steering assembly and now a high-pressure line and still have a hard time steering. Has anyone heard of this type of problem happening before ?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

We put brand new out of the bottle synthetic power steering fluid .

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Santa Fe yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am a technician at Pep Boys .

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just that we replace the rack twice and the power steering pump twice and now we tried a high-pressure line to see if that would fix the problem
