I think I might have a problem with my Variable Pressure power steering valve.

How would I determine whether the valve is bad or if the electronics controlling it are bad?


Thanks for any thoughts or advice.

What symptoms are you experiencing? A few years back, I thought I was having a problem with my power steering. The car would suddenly drift to the right when driving around a long sweeping left hand turn (or vice-versa). It was a little scary to be cruising along and have the car move a couple of feet to the side without any warning. It felt like the variable steering was going out. Anyway, turned out the the tires were the cause. The sidewalls were shot. Looked fine, but for some reason they just gave up. New set of tires cleared up the problem. Never happened again since.........
