I am posting this issue because I tried under my R&P subject line and got no follow-up. I had my 2003 impala in today and had the tires rotated and new back breaks in. The place told me that I was kinda low on PF and it looked like my R&P was leaking. I have had zero issues with the steering since purchasing the car 16 months ago.
After I got my car back and they topped off the PS fluid, changed the breaks and rotated the tires I now have a steering issue when I turn the wheel to the left and only the left. At highway or city street driving, no issue, but if I am stoped or say trying to turn into a parking space the wheel is sluggish to the left and I hear a sound. Again I can turn right under same issues and it’s a smooth turn. I finally was able to get the PS cap off when I got home and there is fluid, however it did make a suction sound when I finally got it off and never remember hearing that sound on any other car I have when removing the PS cap. I need to make a long drive tomorrow of about 300 miles but am now concern of what is causing this all of a sudden and should I not drive.
While driving on both interestate and city roads there is no sound no vibration or anything unless going like less then 5-10 mph.
I really hope some folk can offer some advice…
