SOURCE: Honda Accord steering vibration
this sounds like an issue with the power steering rack and pinion unit, poss one of the internal O ring seals leaks when cold, try using LUCAS oils power steering conditioner, it is the only one I know of that really works, also I would recommend you flush the power steering fluid before you add this product.

there is a seal in there between the 2, and I think that drives are back to back. its hard to get at in the truck, so if your'e gonna service it , remove it from the engine first, and clean it all up

Harry,there are two failure modes for your problem. If you get a C.E.L. when the problem happens, you will be able to retrieve the codes and will probably find TPS circuit failure codes.The TPS (or APPS) has a flat spot and at the magic position, will drop the engine to an idle.A couple of full throttle applications on the pedal will usually cure the porblem for the moment.Replace the sensor assembly (very expensive).The other mode is a similar drop to idle but without a C.E.L. This is usually corrected by shutting the truck off and re-starting it.This indicates a brain failure on the VP44 injection pump.The solder joints become crystallised on the circuit board from excessive heat cycles. This will create poor connections on the board and cause a loss of power and drop to idle.You can either replace the pump (also very expensive) or if you are mechanically inclined, you can source a brain and solenoid assembly and replace it on the pump. Hope this helps. Ken
