I have a P reg VW Golf 16vSE Auto with power steering. Lately I have noticed that occasionally when I turn to the right, everything goes stiff with the steering. Then it is ok for a while. Any ideas I...

first off with it being occasional, not sure what you mean by that. Once a day, once a week, several times a day?
The reason I ask is if you could leave it at shop/station and they could drive it and experience it they would be better able to advise you.
anyway get a second opinion.
I say this cuz The power steering system is quite foolproof: either it gives boost or it doesn't. It is extremely rare that it would randomly start to steer hard to the left or to the right.

I have a leak in the power steering column. What will happen once it all leaks out?? can I still drive it?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If it leaks out, the steering wheel will be hard to turn. Plus, you will then have to replace the entire steering pump if it goes dry. You need to keep an eye on the level and keep adding fluid as needed. You will still need to get the leak fixed. If you are running low on fluid, the steering wheel will be harder to turn and you will hear a winding noise when you turn the wheel.

This may be from the power steering. Check for leaking fluids underneath. You may also inspect the steering boot for oil inside. It may be bad seals, broken parts or incorrect fluid or fluid may be at the incorrect level.

Power steering goes out randomly

you are 100% right. I have a 2004 avalanche that they want to charge me $250 to replace the intermiediate shaft when they recalled up to 2003 avalanches for this. I was told they thought they had it fixedin 04 but didint, no recall will be issued because it is not a safety issue.

I bought a 2000 Ford and a 1998 Lincoln several years ago, No more GM for me if thats the best they can do. It sure is nice to only have to go to the shop for oil changes.
