Power steering

Postby Humphrey20 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 10:17 pm

I've got a 98 caravelle 188 bowrider with a Volvo penta 4.3 the steering is very stiff almost like power steering isn't working at all. The power steering fluid looks like chocolate milk and when I pull cap off I can't see fluid circulating. Does anyone know if a new power steering pump would fix it?

Fluid in the pump should be pink and see through,change the fluid first,and see what happens.
