Power steering systemPower steering system  - Starting and driving - Mitsubishi Lancer Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Lancer

The power steering system operates while the engine is running. It helps reduce the effort needed to turn the steering wheel.

The power steering system has mechanical steering capability in case the power assist is lost. If the power assist is lost for some reason, you will still be able to steer your vehicle. If the power assist is lost, you will notice it takes much more effort to steer and that there is much more “free play” in the steering wheel. If this happens, we recommend you to have your vehicle inspected.
