Help Now Please No Ps Fluid Left!!!
First snow and real cold when I left for work my power steering was extremely stiff and I could barely turn. Had to go but this am drive was only ten minutes, never got power steering to work.
Ran to the corner on break bought PS fluid dumped her in and it pissed out from the front center area of rack where there is something that prodrudes out(steering gear area??)
Now I have to leave in a few minutes on a 45min drive without any fluid. If the rack is screwed I don't care it's done and I can get home, but will no fluid in the pump cause a bearing to seize or are the pump bearings not lubed with PS fluid.
If I'm definitely going to blow something let me know. If it's 50/50 fine. Hopefully you'll tell me it can be done without any more damage than is already done. For the record I have driven about 10 mins with no fluid in the entire system.
Help please I need to make a decision in the next 15 mins.
Thanks in advance.
