Hmmm 156 JTD (00 W) Power Steering ...


I have recently moved from a M-plate 164 TSpark to a W-plate 156 JTD and am, overall, enjoying the experience.

One question about the power steering. When I start up, all is fine with the steering well weighted, etc. However, after driving the 10 miles to/from work and attempting parking manouevres, the steering becomes very, very heavy - almost like no assistance is being given. I presume that this is not normal.

Looking under the bonnet, and knowing very little about the anatomy of the 2.4 diesel engine, I think I can see the power steering pump at the front (left) of the car - looking from the front - where there is a portion which seems to rotate intermittantly or, rather, spasmodically at tickover. Is this some kind of variable assistance which might be faulty?

Any help greatly appreciated.
