    I had a friend do a 700r/208 change to a 400/203. Suddenly my powersteering makes noise and is hard to steer, and I got a flat tire (just kidding about the tire).
    The motor is a 1993 model 454....
    I thought power steering pumps just slowly started leeking on the driveway, but never all of a sudden hard to stter, noise and no leaks?

    Thanks in advance all you CK5rs -

    There is a shaft inside. It can all of a sudden break. We just had it happen with one of our company trucks.

    rezalb,
    Just wanted to make sure that you have already checked the fluid level and looked for leaks.

    bandit,
    How are we supposed to read any of that?
