2 possibilities.
1.most likely your rack and pinion is out due to faulty power steering pump.
2.less likely your power steering is out.

Your power steering belt or pump are having an issue. Inspect the belt and fluid level to start with and let me know.

When I drive my steering goes a bit stiff what could be the problem


You are possibly low on power steering fluid. Check the reservoir and top it up as needed. You will need to do this again after a short while, as air works its way out of the pipes.
Then you should think about why it got low to start with. It is possible the power steering gear has sprung a leak somewhere. A common place for that is the steering rack end seals.

My steering wheel is really sticky when im making turns i throught it needed power steering fluid but that wasn't the case. Can anybody tell me what could it be?


Its the steering arm, under the hood drivers side, it connects the steering column shaft to the steering gear box. The small universals get really rusty. causes it to bind. don't try to lube them it doesn't work. About $50.00 from ford.

My steering is really stiff fluid is full no leaks


Had same trouble with my 2005 F-150. There are 2 universal joints on the steering column shaft, 1 in the center of the shaft and the second down by the steering box. Sprayed rust check on these joints over 5 days and they eventually freed up and then covered them with grease. She steers perfect now and I did that last fall.Saved 700 dollars at the dealer.

Steering does not seem true seems to drift to the left .a little harder to turn right than left. dealer says seems ok to him. i still feel a slight tightness when turning right


This could be a number of things. To check you would have to disconnect the steering from both wheels with the car up on jack stands. then try turning the steering wheel and each wheel to see which if any feel stiff. Then you would know where to start looking. Also make sure the whole front end and steering system is lubed properly.

HAD TOP MOUNTS AND TRACKING DONE. STEERING FEELS A BIT STIFF.


its apossibility that when you got new top strut mountings fitted it might be fact that it will be like new & you are not used to it also not having power steering you might be feeling the effects what i would suggest you do is continue to drive itnormal & see if it eases of if this doesn't sound like problem & stiff through column or steering rack let me know because not been able to feel it its hard to tell thank you.

Steering is stiff


the problem could be contamination in ps fluid.i would flush the system and replace fluid first .if that does not solve the pronlem you most likely need power steering pump. the steerjng box is very unlikely.
