I was doing a lot of wheel - to - wheel locks when i was doing some 8's. A guy on nasioc said this wasn't too good for the steering pump and said i probably fried it. But that still doesn't add up to why i *do* get turning assistance at a stand still, simply by revving my engine up to higher rpm's. Any easy way to check for other issues to narrow it down to dying/dead PS pump ?
EDIT :: as an example...
Okay so i went out and did some testing see if this will help describe the problem exactly
when i go to a turn... and shift to neutral and the RPM's drop to 500ish....its ridiculously hard to turn the wheel meaning little to no power steering. HOWEVER... if i rev the engine , whilst still in neutral so i'm going the same speed.... the wheel immediately becomes easy to turn again. This is an example of what i mean that when the RPM's are up... i can easily turn , and when they're low....then i can't turn easy.
