The steering gear pump is a simple and economical pump that creates pressure through the meshing of the gear teeth, to force pressurized fluid out. Modern steering gear pumps are much quieter than the earlier models due to better precision in the manufacturing process and the finer teeth of the gears. Also, improvements in fluid dynamics and flow have allowed for these pumps to be a lot more reliable and offer a smoother experience overall. That said like all pumps they do fail eventually in which case they need to be repaired because total failure could mean that changing gears can be near impossible.
The best time to begin your online search for a replacement steering gear pump is when your mechanic tells you that the current steering gear pump in your car is noisy. You can also opt to visit a mechanic for a thorough check up of your steering pump if you find that changing gears have become harder. If you drive a manual vehicle, there will be physical resistance each time you try changing gears. The other indication of a bad pump is that you’ll not be able to change gears at all.
