Try adding some Lucas Power Steering Fluid to your power steering pump. Friend of mine had the same problem with his power steering when he would first start the vehicle the steering would catch and loosen up for about five minutes then he added the Lucas to his power steering pump no problem from the first time he put it in. No guarantee its going to work but its worth a try.
