Power Steering/Overdrive

Post by Zeddex » Tue May 27, 2014 11:20 am

Hi guys,
As a few know from the cruise on sunday I'm having problems with my power steering.
It seems to tighten up and loosen when it chooses, quite scary down leader road.
Any ideas what could be causing this? Had a wee search throughout other forums but can't seem to find any related issues.
Only thing I came across was the speed sensor, is this worth checking?
Also noticed my overdrive on the auto tranny is randomly kicking in and out, can this be caused by bad o2 sensors?
Thanks,
George

Jared mentioned your steering problem on the way home. That would make life interesting!

Hopefully both issues have easily identified solutions that are not too tough on the wallet.
