It's your steering! Fix it or park it!! What happens if it goes out all at once in that spot where you really need power assist? -

A mechanic gave me the same diagnosis($1500). I got a 2nd opinion, 2nd mechanic said it was my power steering hose that was leaking (dealer item= $290). I went with 2nd opinion, steering has been perfectly fine for last 3 months. -
