VX SS s2
Hey guys,
the old girl has started doing something ive never experienced before.
Under hard acceleration from standstill, mostly when turning left but ive now noticed it does it going straight too. car feels like it loses power steering but when im turning left it feels like it locks until i come off throttle then i can turn the wheel again. not sure if its a failed rack or pump.
what would you guys suggest?

how old is the fluid in there is it low could try topping it off or flushing it out and replacing it could also check if belt slipping

Good suggestions by ant797. The other possibility could be a faulty pump. Have there been any steering fluid leaks?
