sometimes it is hard for me to turn the car. it feels like the power steering is going out at times
My car has an automatic transmission.
There are a few different reasons that a power steering system will lose function. The most common causes are that the drive belt is slipping, the pump is going out, there is a leak in the system that is allowing air in, or there is a mechanical linkage that is causing some type of binding. Without a little more information, it would be hard to make a guess at what is going on. If you need some help in diagnosing and/or repairing the problem, contact a certified mechanic, like the mobile mechanics available at YourMechanic.com.
