    My power steering goes out at low RPMs.  This seemed to start after I ran over a curb. ?

    Cadillac Coupe de Ville.  Power steering pump replaced 1,000 mi ago.  Likely causes for failure ?  Could running over a curb created the problem ?

    have you checked your power steering fluid level?  You may have a leak if the steering goes at low rpms.  The leak may be at the steering box.  After a blow like hitting a curb, it puts a lot of stress on the seals in the steering box.
