#1 of 6 power steering problem???
Feb 06, 2007 (5:49 pm)
Long story short. 2001 pathfinder SE
I got stuck in the mud and tried really hard to drive out. After getting out, the power steering seemed gone. I drove another 5 minutes, checked power steering fluid level and it was low. Checked by a mechanic, he didn't find any leaking but some "metal fragaments". He reflushed the fluid. It feels normal while driving, but still really stiff at 0-5 mph. Put tranismission at neutral, acclerating (increasing rpm) seems help.
Was this due to "damaged power steering pump", or "bent tie rod or ball joint", or "loose belts". Doe anyone have a clue?
Help really appreciated. You can leave a message here or email goer0001yahoo.com. Thanks again.

Most likely a loose belt, but could also be the pump itself.

It may only need to get tightened with the weather changes the rubber expands/contracts.
