    Default Does power steering on a C2 increase engine temperature

    Just wondering if that could be a problem for an over heated engine. Does PS pull much HP.

    Iím no expert, but, if your PS is pulling that hard, thereís a problem with the power steering pump. I doubt seriously if the problem is the PS. My old 64 had a problem with the radiator that caused it to run warm. Replaced it and the problem went away. Just a thought.

    It would not cause a coolant overheating issue if it works properly.


    Yes, it is a parasitic drag on the engine, but not much.
