Hopefully someone on the forum can help me. I have a 2004 fx that suddenly began having steering problems during the extreme cold weather last week. I had applied the brakes and was making a right turn to park when the steering wheel became hard to turn. When accelerating the car steers fine. The fluid level is okay and I have no leaks. I inspected the tie rods and they look okay. Any ideas as to what could be causing the hard steering? I do not think the problem could be the rack and pinion because the car steers fine when accelerating. Could the problem be the high pressure hose? Has anyone experienced this problem?
