It's time to check with a trusted auto mechanic if your steering is stiff.
When you were returning from the Krewe of Boo parade last night you noticed that your steering seemed a bit stiff. But you're not sure it's anything to be concerned about. You're right to wonder because stiff steering is often the first sign that your power steering system has problems. It might be something as simple as needing more power steering fluid, or having your power steering system flushed. But if you don't do it, you're risking a complete power steering failure.
Why would your power steering fluid need to be flushed? Well, among other things, it could be dirty. As steering-racks.co.uk explains, residue can be deposited as hoses wear out: "A leading cause of malfunctioning units is hose residue in the system. Hoses don't just 'up and break.' They deteriorate - they rot - they break away - they slough off bits and pieces of rubber residue, passing them into the system to plug up or gum up the valves and orifices in the rack and pinion unit."
