Power Steering Issues!

Hi guys,

My power steering in my '93 YJ is making louder noises than it usually does. It is the usual power steering pump sound (I think) but is much louder. I ended up almost running the power steering fluid dry on a trail. Under hard steering conditions, (rocks and hard cuts) puffs of blue smoke would come from the driver's side where the pump is located. Anyone have any problems like this? If so let me know!

Thanks much!

First determine where the fluid went and that will need to be replaced or repaired. You prablay smoked the pump. Try getting another pump. It would be a good time to change the all the hoses at the same time.
