Steering problem, need advice
The steering on my rig is acting funny. It is kind of like the pump is fluctuating the power assist pressure when turning. While moving or standing still in the matter of a few degrees of steering wheel turn, It becomes easy to turn then hard then back several times in a turn. This change in assist does not seem to happen in the same place on the wheel (that is when I turn the wheel it does not get hard to turn at lets say the 5 deg. point of steering wheel rotation every time) Most distressing of all the wheels will not return to center after a turn without assistance.
The power steering unit fluid is full. The belt is new (6 months)and tight. there is no visible binding, bent, or loose linkage. And this is a stock suspension
Could this be as easy as the power steering pump failure?
