    Re: Stiff steering wheel

    Could be anything from a low/flat tyre to a power steering pump failure.

    How old is the car?
    Is it making any unusual noises?
    Does the steering also feel notchy?

    Shaun.

    Re: Stiff steering wheel

    I would start by checking if there is any fluid in the PAS reservoir and go from there. If it has lost all its fluid, there could be a leak in the system somewhere which would cause the system to lose its pressure and create the heavy steer feeling.....almost like trying to drive a train around corners.
