    power steering problems

    I finished up doing a ton of bolt ons and tuning my car. Everything is perfect except my power steering is not quite right. It's like it's only half working. I unbolted it to do the cam and heads swap. I also took apart the steering shaft to get the headers in. Does anybody have any ideas what could be causing this off the top of their head, before i replace the pump. It was working fine before I tore it apart. The pulley spins freely, its full of fluid. The belts is on correctly. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

    I never opened the system. But I tried the method to self bleed, with no luck on the results.

    I'm subd to this one... I have had a weird steering issue also. Right after I start the car, if I come to a right hand corner it feels like there is something almost "dragging" or something. But it only does it on the first right hand turn. After that its good until I start it up again. There is no whine or anything from then power steering pump or anything. I'm probably going to top it off anyways since the reservoir seems about 1/2 full. I dunno just seems odd it won't do it on lefts also.

    OP-Is that anything like you are getting?

    Mine is constant. You know how the power steering help decreases as speed increases. Well my steering feels like I'm going 110mph all of the time. I am seriously stumped. The steering shaft does rub just a tab on the header but this feels harder that just a little rub.
