Help! Powersteering assist only at speeds greater than 35mph
We have a 96 Fleetwood with about 180k miles, and noticed that upon starting the car and at slow speeds there is no power steering assist. However, the faster the car is going the more PS assist there is. above 30-40 MPh its fine, slower than that and steering assist decreases proportionally with speed with it being hardest when the car is stationary.
We have swapped out the PS Gear box, PS Pump, replaced the lines, fluid and bled the system.
Im not sure what else there is to do that could be causing this issue? Someone mentioned something about a limiter / pressure sensor.
Has anyone ever run into this issue before? Any troubleshooting questions or tips to help try and find the root cause?
ANY help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!! We are at wits end here!
I created this in another thread and it was suggested I take this discussion here so I am doing just that!
It was also suggested that the solenoid may be the issue. I asked the guy who is helping us out with this and he said that the power steering pressure valve has seized.
Does anyone have a part number for this ? know where we can find another replacement part OR know of a workaround?
