darla you have a pump that has a sticky valve in it,somtimes this can be cured by doing a p/s flush on system if unsucceeful then pump replacement would be the next step,hope this helps

I'm going on vacation - about a 2 hour drive each way - ya think I need a mechanic before then? Not noticed any problems in steering ...
