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

When the engine is stopped, the power steering system will not function and it will require greater manual effort to operate the steering wheel. Keep this in mind in particular when towing the vehicle. Never turn off the engine while driving.

Periodically check the power steering fluid level.

CAUTION

Do not hold the steering wheel in the fully turned position (either left or right), for longer than 10 seconds. This can cause damage to the power steering pump due to reduced lubrication.
