1995 corsica


#1

my corsica is a good running car but there is one thing that angers me about the car.only when the weather is under 20 degrees the steering pump and the stering rack make a winding noise that drives me nuts like now its 42 degrees outside and there not a peep out of the system it only does it when its cold is it the fluid bad? plz help


#2

Sounds like the pump might be on its last legs. Have you checked the fluid level?


#3

the fluid is right at the right level no leaks or anything so you think its the pump?


#4

It sounds like the pump to me. They do wear out. They don’t always leak first.


#5

Before you go and change the pump, try flushing the power steering system first. Sometimes this stops power steering pump whine.

how do i do that


#7

try getting cold climate power steering fluid and change out the fluid - also carefully inspect the entire system for leaks of damp areas as you may not be leaking but pulling air into the system which will make it whine
