Power Steering

Hi, I have an 89 islander 4cyl 5 speed w/ power steering.

But it doesn't work. How do I determine the component that went bad.. also where is the fuse for it...?

Thanks,
Wes

well i'd start with checking the fluid level first. and there isn't a fuse for it. it's belt driven so you could check to make sure the belt is properly adjusted and isn't slipping and that the pulley is turning freely.

i'd also check the pump for sludge. could just be gummed up. check fluid flow with the engine running. open the cap and look inside for flow.
