Q: difficult steering left after starting, but only in cold weather. on 2001 Dodge Caravan

It feels like I have no power steering, but only after the first few left turns after starting my car. It feels like a knot or blockage, and there is a noise and steering returns to normal. It can be dangerous since I can overcompersate when regular steering returns. A few times I have experiences same problem turning right.

many thanks for your answer. however, I am a senior and don't have a clue what a steering rack consists of. is is one part or a whole series of parts? can you give a rough estimate of repair. thankx for any additional info.
