Common power steering problems include low power steering fluid, leaks of the power steering fluid, mechanical failure, belt slips and failing power. Most power steering issues are easy to fix.

The most common problem associated with power steering is lack of power steering fluid. It does not need to be filled as often as coolant or oil, but it is still important to have power steering that runs effectively. When the fluid is low, the steering wheel becomes more difficult to use. Turning requires more physical exertion because the power steering is no longer active. The steering wheel is easy to use after refilling the fluid.
