Question Jeep needs to warm up before steering is easy

I know for a fact it's power steering but what could be causing this?

Wrong fluid?

Fluid requires changing?

Or a pump on the way out.

(All assuming the belt isn't slipping).

Check and see if the fluid is low too.

Re: Jeep needs to warm up before steering is easy

As previously said, make sure the fluid is full, make sure its not burnt or dirty. Also make sure the belt isnt slipping, but if it was I think it would be constant and not go away once it warms up. I would check/change the fluid and if it doesn't go away they pump is no good.
