    Default 2001 Chevy Tahoe power steering lost

    Hi all

    My 2001 Chevy Tahoe has lost its power steering.
    I checked the fluid and it is at the correct level.
    All belts seem to be intact and in good working order.

    This happened suddenly last night - I think when I was taking a hard
    left turn.

    Any ideas what else I can check to determine what is at fault? I don't
    have a service manual.
    Is there any relay or electrical component to the power steering?

    Thanks

    Release the belt tension and see if you can move the PS pump pulley
    in/out. Could be a broken pump drive shaft. Seen that more than once.

    The shaft had broken in the pump - new pump - problem fixed.
