Hissing Steering Wheel

Recommended Posts

I kid you not, that's what the Rangie is doing all of a sudden. There is a "hissing" sound, like a slight compressed air leak, only when the power steering is being used, and the sound is obvious when in the driver's seat, but not with my head under the bonnet with someone else moving the steering back and forth. (I would have thought the box or pump would have been noisier, if that's what I could hear from inside the car.) I have just replaced the shaft with a UJ on either end between the steering column and the steering box. Though I don't see how that would change anything.

Mine (One_Ten) does that if I take it to full lock and hold it there. As soon as I release the steering wheel it stops hissing. Maybe, there is something tight in your steering box?
