    I had a second look, the P/S liquid is on LOW Cold when its cold. I guess will top up to high COLD and see if it will help.

    I got it topped up by dealer..no improvemnt. Upon turns and while slow moving i used to feel that am losing power in steering..i then took the tensioner bolt off, put it back on and tightened it while it was locked in place. I took it for a drive and i felt like power was back to normal with no loss. Let it sit for a week and now when i drove...i see there is no power on the steering...IS IT POSSIBLE THAT TENSIONER IS BAD..or IS IT THE BELT.? Thnks in advance :confused:
