hydraulic power steering Sign In

Hello everyone. I'm new here.
I have a 2008 Saturn vue v6 .l have changed its hydraulic power steering and rack and pinion. When the engine runs over 3000 RPM it works with no problem. However, when it's going below that power steering doesn't function.
Any idea?

? Found lots of variables for this so need to know exactly what you have - engine, drivetrain type.
What was wrong before and what exactly did you replace?

Shows a control valve for how much assist not necessarily part of a rack and pinion replacement? It's called a "power steering control valve" if applicable at all.

Need to know more about what happened and what you did,

Why did you change the power steering rack? Did it have this problem before you changed the rack? Which V6?
