The first time you started doing that when I spun out in the dirt and ended up doing throwing two donuts and it's been like that since

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

I believe it does. Let me double check for you

Hang on

Expert:  Jay replied 11 months ago.

Yes there is a power steering assist solenoid that is part of the power steering rack assembly.

Expert:  Jay replied 11 months ago.

So the power steering rack would need to be replaced in order to replace that solenoid.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask.

I can just change the solenoid instead of the whole rack and pinion
Expert:  Jay replied 11 months ago.

No, as Instated this solenoid comes on the power steering rack. The power steering rack would need to be replaced
