Measure the distance that the steering wheel can be turned without moving the front wheels.

Checking Stationary Steering Effort

Position the vehicle on a level surface and place the steering wheel in the straight ahead position.

2.

Start the engine and turn the steering wheel from lock to lock several times to warm up the power steering fluid.

If the measured value exceeds standard value, inspect the steering gear box.
