I own a Jeep Wrangler 1995. I feel that the car steering is heavy when i turn to the right or left while the car is stationary. However, when i increase the engine speed by pressing the accelerator, it is ok. Ihave check that the belt is tight, the steering pressure switch is a new one and working (this helps the idling speed to increase a little when i turn the steering). How to resolve this problem? Thank you for your reply.

Try this, with the engine off, have someone turn the steering wheel left and right 1/4 turn while you lay on the ground in front carefully watching the movement of all the linkages and stabilizer rod. By your description, it sounds like the bar that is attached to the front differential (pass. side) to the frame mount (driver side) is shot. Observe and confirm.
if you feel the pulsation in brake pedal when stopping. its a warped brake rotor thats causing it. for bad cv joint symtoms--- Unusual noises when making turns. As you are driving on the road and you make a turn at the corner, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from under the car then this is one of the symptoms of a bad CV joint. These noises will sound like something is clicking beneath the car every time you turn the steering wheel. Evidence of a damaged boot. Steering wheel feels heavier. The steering wheel will start to feel tighter and heavier and you can hardly make simple turns to the left or right. In severe cases you might even feel heavy vibrations like you are driving down a rocky road.
Have you checked the power steering container, to make sure you have power steering fluid in it?
The steering will be feeling heavy, and hard to steer the car, if the power steering fluid is too low, or empty.
It's best to have a friend help you through this process. Along the inside perimeter of the base of the top there are about 8 or 10 mounting bolts. Make sure you have all the mounting hardware before starting. The top is not that heavy but it IS awkward, hence the friend helping out. Just align the bolts/nuts and tighten them down. That's it.
