I have "dead spots" while turning, especially while backing. There is a "squeal" in the center of the steering wheel, NOT the engine compartment. I've recently replaced both belts because they were old.
I've changed the power steering fluid and filter. That seemed to loosen up the dead spots. Later added Lucas power steering conditioner/stop leak ( there are no leaks) this seemed to help loosen it a little bit more. Anyone else have this issue?
I have no odd noises coming from the engine compartment as if it were a bad idler gear. No grinding noises, just the dead spots (harder to steer when turning).
I was going to drain the power steering fluid again and fill mostly with 50-60% Lucas and remainder with PS fluid but i wanted to hit the forum up for any suggestions.
Thanks in advance,
