Shakes and noise from steering
Shot in the dark here but I thought I'd give it a shot.
The E30 has been sitting for a while. Other than trips from my spare parking spot to my garage, it has essentially been in the same spot since November.
This week though, it started acting up.
When I turn the wheel at low speeds (dry steering for example), the steering wheels shakes and shudders and there's a noise. I don't know if that's the pump or the rack but it's a noise nonetheless.
If I remove the input on the steering (let go of the wheel), the noise and vibration goes away.
The reservoir has fluid in it (although it is low). Could something have seized? Are these normal symptoms?
The car is going to the shop today for other issues but I figured I'd ask here before I spend more $$ chasing a red herring.
