I've had the power steering pump replaced in my vehicle, and some coils that they said the power steering pump leaked onto. I'm still having trouble with my power steering and its just occasionally not all the time. It will stiffen up when I try turning. What else could cause this problem? I feel like the company I'm taking it to is screwing me over because I'm female. Please help me to get this problem resolved, because I've already dished out $1,000.00 for repairs and its still not fixed!

Check to make sure the system was bled properly.

Jack up vehicle and block rear wheels. Make sure vehicles front tires are off the ground. Then turn wheels left before you get to the stop and then right before you get to the stop. Keep repeating for about 5 mintues.

Then start vehicle and do the same. Do not hit the stops! Add fluid as needed.
