    Lightbulb Power steering rack

    I just purchased a 86 laser turbo, it has power assisted rack and pinion and the wheel is stiff but when your turning it will at an instance become super easy causing over steer and then will tighten up again. Not familiar with these old systems, any help would be appreciated. Im not sure if it's the rack going bad, the pump going bad, or if the belt could be to lose or???

    1st check the belt. Your rack may have "morning sickness". One 12oz bottle of this is the cure:
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] 86 Daytona Turbo Z C/S with a full 89 Shelby swap, back on the road and soon to be painted (and lose that Oggie Fisher black) 83 Porsche 944, 5 speed, all stock. 2014 Toyota Tacoma 4x4, 5 speed, daily driver. 2017 Trek 1.2 bicycle.

    Check the fluid. I've found that most of the time if the rack is giving me a hard time it just needs some fluid again.
