Make sure that your tires are not under inflated in the front. If there is adequate power steering fluid and the belt driving the pump pulley is properly tensioned, the output pressure of the pump should be measured. If the pressure is inadequate that can cause steering difficulty. If the pump checks out then it is possible that the rack assembly and/or linkages are binding. To resolve this, the recommended service is a power steering effort diagnostic. If you request that service, the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
