STEERING DIFFICULTIES AFTER CAR SITS

I have a 1995 Maxima SE with over 232,000 miles on it. Recently, when it is cool outside or if the car sits about a day in moderate temperature, the car is very difficult to steer for a couple of minutes. Do you have any idea what this could be?

Do you
have the same problem?

Classic rack and piniion failure. Check the color of you power steering fluid, I bet it is a gun powder gray. Don't drive it too long as it may lock up and then you will be in deep do-do!

Good luck
