Question about 1998 Isuzu Rodeo
Power steering a little stiff and does not easily return to centre. Had the power steering pump replaced last year with no improvement in steering.
With steering wheel at 45deg I can feel slight stiffness.
New event: Went on vacation for 2 weeks. Came back, drove the vehicle and experienced a power steering failure or something. Very difficult to turn the wheel. It would come and go for the remainder of the drive.
I raised the front off the ground, disconnected the tie rods to isolate the steering. Its not the suspension ball joints. Its the steering system.
Not sure what else to check. Get a system flush is my next move.
Check the hoses are not closed up and causing a restriction also check the relief valve.

Try pushing in the key while turning the wheel either way. And jiggling it. This happens because the steering locks for the car's protection. If we park it with the wheels turned, it locks in that position. If that does not work, you may have to call a good mechanic to help you.
