    Default Weird power steering issue

    Hi all,

    My power steering works perfectly when I need to go right (turning the wheel clockwise). But when I need to go left, if I turn the wheel with a bit of speed it stiffens up as if the power steering isn't working for a second. This feels the same if the car is at a standstill or moving slowly. Any ideas? Fluid level seems fine. I'm guessing some belt is acting funny?
