How often should I replace the power steering pump?

The power steering pump will most likely not require replacing during the lifetime of a vehicle. Whilst it is a unit that is in constant use, they are relatively robust parts.

Can you drive with broken power steering?

If you experience any untoward characteristics in your steering, or if you suspect there is any issue with the power steering or there are concerns about its condition, book a diagnostic inspection immediately and do not drive the vehicle. Steering is obviously critical to a vehicle's use so any issues that arise with it are not only dangerous, they could be life threatening.
