heavy steering and on & off noises

Hello all,

My ver 4 GC8 steering is very heavy and occasionally there will be some noise when you turn the power steering at certain angle (even without moving). Brought it to the workshop and the mechanic suspect that it was the power steering pump which give way. Exchange a new one but the problem is still there.

Besides, when i brake or driving at high speed, around the range of 180 kmh, i heard some vibration coming from the engine front area...

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Re: heavy steering and on & off noises

On the bugeye's. We could use a reseal kit to fix these problems. Not sure if it would apply to your GC model. But check with the dealer if they have a kit for your car.

Very messy job but it is DIY

Usually means you are gettign air into the system
