Re: power steering lock up on acceleration
Hi David, yes it does it all the time, about 1/8 of a turn to the left at acceleration about 3000 rpm and it does it, no problem returning strait or turning to the right. It is really scary it really lock up like something hit something, even tried to jack up the car at different heights to see if moving freely. It is all moving freely when not accelerating.....almost feel like trying without the belt to see if it does the same thing, but afraid to damage the box, would that do some damage?. Did the same thing with my old pump, first tried it stock then did the mod that is on your site for the pressure valve and drill out the orifice to .157.....was better but still locks, this is why I went with new pump to see if it would be different but same results. Also changed the return hose 3/8.
So I guest the big question is does trapped air do this? Have a hard time to believe the box is defect.....or the pump.
Appreciate your help.....because I am at the end of imagination here.....
