    Default Power steering issue in civic reborn

    Salam to all.

    Brothers, I have 2009 Civic 1.8 Manual.
    Today while I was driving, the steering wheel suddenly became so hard that it was difficult to steer.
    There is no leakage in the pipes and pumps. Oil level is maximum but steering is hard.
    Please guys help me. share your views and suggestions.

    Thanks

    Check the air pressure in tires
    Check the power pump
    Check if the belt of power pump is loose

    You can first check the pump yourself. Just tell somebody to turn the steering wheel for you and you should open the bonnet and listen for odd noises, if they do come then there must b a fault with the pump and if not you should let a professional check it

    If there is no problem in the pump, check ball joints and tie rods as well, improperly lubricated and wear and tear on ball joints and tie rods can also cause hard steering!
    Hope it helps

    Thanks bro really appreciate your advice =D. I checked the pump. there wasn't any noise. what i noticed is that once the car
    is started the steering wheel is hard, when i pump the accelerator the steering gets smooth and soft. I think you are right, there is
    an engine belt problem. I will again check it and post my observations.
