Power Steering went out

423 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Sepp
Hey, my pump has been out for a week and get the P/S light in the dash. Is this common for it to go out?

I checked the fluid level and it is over the max line, I read that over max is not good so I will remove some out.

Is it okay to drive car with the light on and no power steering for long time? Has anyone found a fix? is the pump clogged?

the spyder uses an electric power steering pump, and thus special proprietary power steering fluid

using any other fluid will cause the pump to malfunction and ultimately die. its a common tale around here
