Hi All
Just purchased a 92 MX6. Love it already. Have a couple of questions.
a) Is it normal for the steering to feel heavy compared to other power steering in cars? If so is it related to the 4ws?
b) The other problem?is that as the speed increases the steering wheel goes further off centre. ie 100km/h is at almost a quarter of a turn, but at 60 km/h it is only off about an eigth of a turn.
HELP!

I would say your 4WS is moist definitely of .. jack the back of the car up (both wheels of the ground) maybe 2 jacks if you don’t have a trolley .. .. and start there motor (in neutral) with the front wheels straight.. Then watch the rear wheels when you switch off .. if they are in alignment they shouldn’t move when the motor is switched off..
If it is out let me know and ill tell you how to sort it. .

But having said that the heavy steering could be fat rubber or soft rubber or a failing power steering pump (most likely the latter)

Thanks. It does have brand new rubber, so that could explain the heavy steering. Will check the 4ws when I get a chance.
