Power Steering Question - Crazy!
I had a question for anyone with a Ford 6.0L reguarding a problem I am having with my steering system. When the truck is cold in the morning, pretty much just on my way to work in the morning (but after it has warmed up a bit); and only occasionally during the day, my truck seemes to have a "Bump" in the exact center of the steering cycle. I cannot drive the truck no matter what the speed without it pointed 5 to 10 degrees to either the right or the left. No matter what I do to try to center it just seems like I have a big "Bump" that keeps me from being able to drive the truck straight. I have gotten under the truck and inspected what I could. Nothing appears visibly broken. The steering system when the truck is sitting still will move from lock to lock with no groaning, grinding, squeeking, or any other apparent problem. This only happens like I said, when the truck is cold, and when its moving. I very recently had the power steering flushed, and at this time I dont appear to be loosing fluid from the reserve tank. I would apprecieate any advice/ideas you could give. Folks on the road probably think I'm drunk, not to mention it scares the **** out of me! Let me know if you need more information...Thanks!
