Power Assist Check

Power Steering:


1.Start the engine, let it idle, and turn the steering wheel from lock-to-lock several times to warm up.

 

2.Attach a commercially available spring scale to the steering wheel. With the engine idling and the vehicle on a clean, dry floor, pull the scale as shown and read it as soon as the tires begin to turn.

3.If the scale reads no more than 29N (3.0 kgf, 6.6 lbf). If it reads more, check for steering linkage.
