When idling and I turn the steering wheel , the revs dip by about 50 -100 .

Does the same when I put the blower on any suggestions?

Should I hear the power steering when i turn the wheel as i can hear a sort of low whining noise.
Not loud but never had power steering before.

Is it possible to have too much power steering fluid in the reservoir?

Cheers :blink:

this is perfectly normal providing the revs pick up again, its just becuase your putting a load on the engine.
