Thank god. Escaped from the tractor with your careful driving.
As you might aware, but i am posting few checks to identify the power steering failure symptoms for the benefit of TAI
members. Feeling little hardness while turning the power string while driving:
In general, we are able to steer the steering with a bit of effort. If you found steering hardness increased day by day it is the first symptom of power steering failure. Check for any Oil leaks when the car parked in for long durations:
If you found any oil leakage below the parked car you have to make sure whether it is power steering oil or any other issue(anyhow we need to handle it too).
The power steering fluid color should be in red/pink if it is in normal.
Check the power steering oil color and if it looks blackish it is the time for oil replacement avoid any issues.
We need to follow the below steps in case of unexpected power steering failure.
Need to switch on the hazard lights, apply the horn couple of times to get the other drivers attention to get your path have more clearance.
It is very hard to move the steering once the power steering was failed. Try to move to the side of the road slowly and stop the car aside.
Call for the roadside assistance or your reliable mechanic if any to resolve the issue.
