Check the liquid level in servo tank. If it's low than fill it up to max. Than after couple days if the liquid is lower than before, that means that it leaks somewhere, maybe on the pump or on stearing rods...

Power Steering Gets Hard When Swtiching From Reverse To D4

I am not sure what type of car this is or year,make and model or engine size, i will try to help to the best of my abilty.
The first thing is to make sure the power steering fluid is full. this would be the first thing to check.
The next thing is to make sure the power steering belt is tight. A loose belt would cause the steering to get tight aand then loosen up.

While checking the fluid level look at the fluid, see if its dark and dirty as bad fluid could cause a problem also. not to common but will cause problems.

The other problems would be things you would not be able to check unless you are a tech and have the tools. the power steering pump or steering rack may be the problem also and this may be the begininng of the problem, the way it happens sometimes is that in the morning the steering may be hard to turn and as the engine warms up the steering gets better.
This is due to a bad steering pump or the steering rack, the pressure would need to be tested in the pump, this is to make sure the pump is working within specs.

In your case i would check the steering fluid and the belt and if the steerin is good now i would not worry about it until you start having more often hard steering problems. the reason i say this is so that the problem can be found. if the cars acts up once in a while then its hard to test, but when it gets worse thats when you test,
good day.

Steering not straightening out at slow speed

Worn steering components which allow the steering wheels to travel too far either way,hop underneath and get a friend to move the steering while you have a look for movement between the components, or a power steering component like relief valve. Its a bit hard to know without seeing the vehicle, i suggest a steering and suspension specialist like pedders or similar.These guys can do a safety inspection only, if you want to do the work yourself. Cheers Timo.

Steering wheel gets hard with out much floring

Sounds to me like the belt to the power steering pump is slipping. If it's not that, then the pump itself may be on it's way out.
