I just bought a 2000 DeVille with 85000 miles on it. After putting about 300 miles on it over ther last week or so, while driving locally, the steering wheel suddenly stiffened while making a turn. After fighting the wheel & completing the turn, I noticed that the steering became easier - almost normal while accelerating but the steering became more & more difficult as less gas is given.
Is this a symptom of the PS pump on it's way out? Or is the rack & pinion having a problem??
School this rookie, please! :duh

After checking fluid level, belt tension, etc., it turned out to be the pump itself. A local guy replaced it for $240. Did he hose me or is that a reasonable price? :hmm:
