When should you rebuild or replace your electric hydraulic power steering (EHPS)?

An electric hydraulic power steering consists of a hydraulic steering rack with an electrically powered steering pump. The electromechanic steering pump is outfitted with an electric motor and is driven by the CAN-bus network in a car. The most common problem with electric hydraulic power steering is that the electric steering pump does not start-up. Possible causes and symptoms are:

  • Seals dry out which will cause hydraulic oil and moisture to get to the computer part of the electromechanic steering pump.
  • Contamination of hydraulic oil can cause the hydraulic steering rack to become damaged and start leaking.
  • Sound development can occur in the electromechanic steering pump because of wear to the the bearings. When the sound development is ignored the electromechanic steering pump can be damaged permanently.
  • Error codes related to the electric hydraulic power steering that can not be deleted.
