2002 Mercury Marquis V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 75000 miles
Just off center, the steering wheel is hard to turn, and then gets easy as you turn it. This is the same whether you turn left or right, and is the same even when the front tires are off the ground (tested it on jackstands placed under the lower spring cavity). I have replaced the pittman arm and idler arm, and have bled the system. The steering fluid is proper color and there are no apparent bubbles in it. I am beginning to think the pump may be bad, but it only hangs up in the spots indicated. I am at a loss on this one. I have been working on cars and trucks for over 35 years and have never run into a problem like this before. Help
have the same problem?
