RACK AND PINION PROBLEMS

1997 Acura Integra • 204,000 miles

My 1997 acura integra rs sudenly the rack and punion got hard to turn the steering wheel. Sudendy start doing that after the mecanic change the timing bell and the water pump. But I dont think that will affect the rack and pinion. Well after that a tought it migh be the power sterring pump so I went to the auto parts and get me a new power sterring pump.I flush the old oil on the rack and pinion and intall the new power sterrinh pump but the car sterring wheell continue hard to turn the rack dosnt have any leaks some one told me to change the sensor that goes on the hose from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion. The pump is pumping the fluid but the rack and pinion doest not receive the fluid it goes back to the power sterring bottle. What the problem could be? Do I need to change the sensor or it might be the rack and pinion I need help I dont want to be spending money all crazy. Thanks

It cold be your speed sensor or it could be the rack as well. You can try to replace the sensor an dsee if it makes any difference the speed sensor is the one on the hose.
