1996 Volvo 850 engine vibration - bad power steering pump?

Post by T64me » Tue Aug 28, 2018 9:19 pm

I have a 1996 Volvo 850. It has an engine vibration and the power steering seems to cut out every so often. Is it possible the power steering pump is bad and causing the vibration?

Thanks in advance for constructive input!

Check your power steering fluid level first.

Engine vibration is probably attention required in tuneup....coil wires cap rotor plugs require periodic replacement , roughly 2-3 year intervals
