I was driving normally. No issues AT ALL. All of a sudden I hear a kind of "snap", and I lose my power steering. ALL other systems are fine. The only light I got on the dashboard was the "battery" light.
Power steering fluid was topped off a couple of days ago.
Help please, it doesn't sound or feel like a big problem....it feels like an easy fix.....but I was reading online that the pump might have gone out, and need to replace it. A 500 dollar job - I can't afford that right now!
Besides, this was sudden, without warning.
I read that most pumps that go out give out some kind of warning, like groaning.
Car was fine up until it happened.
I'll appreciate your help.
