Power Steering Pump?
Ok this is a really weird problem that my cars always had. I've just never got around to fixing it but now im fed up with it.
Basically the car pulls to the left. Its NOT an alignment issue!!!! I know this because I've had my alignment done and at very slow speeds (5km/h or slower) if I just let go of the steering wheel it will turn to the left.
Its as if there is a constant force pulling the steering wheel to the left, and its much easier to turn it left than it is to turn it right.
Now I was thinking that possibly the power steering pump faulty in some way? dirty possibly? I do not think its the steering rack as i've replaced it once and the problems remained the same.
thanks for any help...
