ZX 16v tickover problem

Post by jux »

I have a citroen zx 2.0 16v and I seem to have a problem with the power steering at tickover. If I am parking and I let the revs drop off whilst simultaniously turning the wheel the car dies. Its driving me mad. anyone know a fix for this. Cheers.

If your idle is eratic then the idle stabiliser may be faulty. If stable then suggest idle speed too low or possibly your power steering pump or something else driven off the engine is putting a higher than normal load on at low revs causing it to cut out.
