I think that i have the same problem with my '97 chevy, but i was told by a person that owned a '98 that he replaced the componet that makes the steering stiffer at higher speeds and looser around town. I think that it is located on the steering colum just below the dash but i haven't had time to look into it to be sure. It was like it when i bought it and it has just been getting worse and happens more often.

04 durango Steering problem. Turns easy going right. turn hard going left. turning left feels like no power steering. anyone have an idea on what the problem is. Already flushed & put new fluid in...

at this point I would suggest that there is a problem with the directional valves in the box or hose condition as the pressure for the right is the same as for the left
it is not getting that pressure through the valve to assist with the turn
have an accredited steering specialist shop check it out

Ford focus fault finding

I don't know what a "early" sound is, but there are several problems that can cause a screech: the commonest is a slipping power-steering belt combined with a stiffness in the steering rack. The cheapest is probably a stone caught between the brake pads and disc. So first check your tyre pressures, then check your brakes finally, take it to a garage to have the power-steering looked at.

The steering just became much harder to turn while

1. Check if the belt on the power-steering pump is not slipping. Replace belt if so.

2. Check for oil leaks (if yes, there is air in system).

My 87 VW Jetta Diesel recently started what feels sliding

Could be a worn rack and pinion, but first I would check the Ball joints and Tie rod ends. Hopefully it is one of those since they are much cheaper to replace.

Weird steering problem.

This sounds to me like it may actually be your steering gearbox, Chevrolet is known for having gearbox issues. Sounds like there may be a dead spot in the gearbox, but it is only noticeable at higher speeds and not slower speeds. Would recommend having it looked at. Usually a suspension issue wouldn't cause that type of feeling. Hope this helps.

Jerky steering in 1999 GMC Suburban

A common problem with this model. Its the sterring speed sensor.A small disc shaped switch at the bottom of the steering shaft next to the floor. IT actually slips over the steering shaft, so, you'll have to disconnect shaft,pull column back towads you to replace. The reason for this switch is to stiffen steering at higher speed.Once it goes bad it starts sending mixed signals to the steering box. A simple fix? Unplug it at the switch like I did mine after I replaced it the second time.
