Hi i have an astra estate 1998 1.6 8v petrol.
i have been told its got electric power streering which seems to work when it wants to at the moment.
The power steering never fails on me when driving but if you turn the car off then it will just stop working, you could then leave the car for a few hours or a day and it will work again.
I am just wondering if anyone can shed some light on what it might be will i need a new pump or a friend of mine was saying about a relay if there is one for the power steering.
I did read some where about putting a wire straight from the battery to the pump, does this actually work and is it hard to do.
