    Sticky steering

    Alright, just got my 96 P71. When turning the steering sticks like it looses power steering. It's not making any noises & I haven't put it up in the air to check tightness of the front end. Any quick ideas?

    Low fluid level, binding in the steering parts from lack of lubrication, bad power steering pump, someone has played with the meshload adjustment on the steering box, hard to say without more information really.
