Re: Steering Problems
Check your power steering fluid next. The resevoir is in the middle(ish) of the engine bay, with a breather pipe coming off it and a little picture of a steering wheel on top.
You should (or always used to) check power steering fluid when it is warmed up, not when cold like engine oil.
The cap as a built in dip stick, which makes it a snap to check.
If it still feels heavy, open the window, turn off the stereo and turn the steering wheel to lock - listen for the whining of the pump. If it's completely quiet you have an issue!
