Question about 2000 Volvo V70
I have researched this issue and it seems the problem may be the power steering pump, it seems it causes these kinds of loose of power assist and the resulting stiff/hard steering effort, the 1st thing to do is have the fluid checked in the pump, is it full? does it look discolored? if it is low you have a leak, if it is discolored or smells burnt then you may have steering rack issues as well, on occasion a flush of the fluid will help, many shops will flush the power steering for you at a reasonable cost compared to parts like the steering rack and pinion and the steering pump.
