2004 Mecury GM power steerring "binds" when cold but is normal after engine warms up

Asked by Dec 12, 2013 at 03:02 PM about the 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We bought this Grand marquis used. We noticed that during cold weather the steering is stiff when starting a turn. The colder it gets the more resistance to starting a turn. Once the engine warms up the stiffness/resistance disappears. The power steering fluid reservoir is full.

Sounds like the rack and pinion unit is worn out. A common Ford problem. Is it noisy (whines) when cold too? If so that's where I'd go first. HTH. -Jim

I was thinking along that line too. It does whine.
