My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Check for any power steering fluid leaks.If any leaks are found they will need repaired to correct this fault here.If these are all checked and found to be o.k. this can be a fault with the power steering pump itself.I have seen the power steering pump fail/act up like this here before in the past needing replaced for this issue here.This would have to be checked/tested further to be sure this is the cause here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
