What does a power steering pump do?

The power steering pump is either an electric motor pump or a mechanically driven pump that pressurises the hydraulic fluid for the power assisted steering rack.

How does a power steering pump work and what are the components

Both types of units use an impeller to draw the hydraulic fluid in from the low pressure return pipe and force it down the high pressure pipe. There are no serviceable items within the pump itself and it is replaced as a unit.

How do you know there is something wrong with the power steering pump?

  • When power steering fluid is leaking from the pump unit.
  • The steering wheel is heavier to turn than normal.
  • When there is a squeaking or grinding noise from the unit when turning the wheel.

When should you consider a power steering pump replacement?

As the unit is fundamental to having control of a vehicle, especially at low speeds, its operation is critical and therefore as soon as it has been confirmed that the pump needs to be replaced it needs to be done.

How common is a power steering pump replacement?

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

How can I extend the life of my power steering pump?

As the driver has no control over the actual rotation of the pump, the only thing an owner can do is to ensure that the power steering fluid is kept topped up and that it is replaced when recommended by the manufacturer.

What happens during a power steering pump replacement?

Whilst there are variations between manufacturers, the basics are pretty similar.

The mechanic will;

  • Check the operation of the power steering pump if it needs to be replaced
  • Undo the power steering pipe unions attached to the pump
  • Drain the power steering fluid from the pump
  • Remove the power steering pump and replace it with the new unit
  • Put everything back together
  • Refill the PAS fluid and bleed the system
  • Start the car and test the steering
