When I am driving the steering kicks back at me once in awhile. I was towing my boat the other day and took a left and then went back to turn to the right and the wheel was completely locked up. I have replaced steering stabilizer and checked everything I could see. What could this be?

    You may want to have the steering pressure checked or even try flushing out the steering system by jacking up the front (steering wheels) and disconnecting the return line to the power steering reservoir put this end in a clean container, get a friend to turn the steering wheel from side to side slowly side to side (wheels off the ground) while you add fresh fluid, keep adding fluid until fluid discharged on the return line is clean.
