If they went out at the same time then you really need to make sure you didn't loose a belt. That's the only thing I can think of that would affect both those things at the same time. Let us know how it works out.

The powersteering went out momentarily going down the road.

Have the Power steering fluid checked. If it is low, top it up. if it is empty, then the vehicle will need to be taken to a garage for the power steering system to be bled.

Also have the powersteering belt checked and tightened.

Where do i put the power steering fluid

On the top of the engine, look at the oil cap. Now going toward the firewall, look down. You'll see a black cap for the power steering. They are easily hidden because of the location and color. Can be filled with powersteering fluid, or Dexron3 atf.

Car is hard to steer all of a sudden, sometimes ok, sometimes worse, sudden onset, steering fluid good

The problem that you are expierencing may be coming from you'r rack and pinion. This device works like a shock that has oil and hydrolics that use powersteering fluid pressure to help you'r vehicle turn easier. You mentioned that the fluid was ok, but just to be on the safe side you may want to look underneath to see if the rack itself is leaking anywhere on it. Another cause may be associated with the powersteering pulley, which if not working will cause there to be no powersteering at all so you can most likely knock that possibility out of the way. The rack and pinion or possible gear box may be the most likely of the two that can be causing the problem.

Hope this Helps!
