1997 Acura RL Q&A

1997 Acura RL Question: VERY stiff steering

I have a used 97 RL. The steering is very difficult. It's hard to explain. It doesn't seem to recoil after you turn...it just stays turned. It is very difficult to drive. Any ideas what might be causing? Steering Rack? Rack & Pinion? Thoughts? -
Answer 1
Problem steering pump. Known to go out. -
