Taurus PWR Steering ???

HI;
Got a high mileage 97 Taurus [270K], runs great and the PWR steering is
smooth when I first start it up, but after a while it sometimes
tightens up, harder to turn, It can still be steered but it takes alot
more effort. Fluid level looks OK.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in Advance

A 97 Taurus with 260K on the clock, curious. Go to any other brand NG and
the folks there will tell you all brands, other then the one they drive,
will fall apart as soon as the warranty expires. ;)

You made Mike's day WG. He drives a new car every year and wonders why
the rest of us suckers have to repair ours.
Sounds like your rack may be going bad.

It's two years no one and no more expensive in the long run than keeping
them till they need to be repaired. Best of all I never need to be worried
about being stranded. LOL

Anyone going to answer the request for advice?

And that's in kilo's, BTW, not miles.

:)

I suspect it's your fluid. Bet it leaks little to none and never been
changed, and the PS pump gets noisier as it warms.

Re: Taurus PWR Steering ???

Every 2 yrs a new one?? and no more expensive!! LOL, not by a long
shot.
An average new car depreciates 8K the 1st yr, 5 or 6K the 2nd.
So if my repair bills are less than 6k per year who,s ahead?
My $600 rack is looking better than ever.
