Q: My power steering is going out. Not sure if it is the line or the rack. on 1994 Buick LeSabre

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My steering wheel is off and when I make sharp right turns the steering wheel is making a groaning noise. This only happens on right turns. I am not sure if it is the rack or the gears. It is getting harder to make sharp right turns. Like turning into a driveway or bridge. It doesn't do it on left turns. If rack goes out would steering lock up? I am just not sure what its causing it. The first time it happened it grinded in the steering wheel and was hard to turn.

if the p/s pump was bad it would be hard both ways. most likely the rack valving is going out. if it goes out completely you will have no p/steering but you will be able to slowly pull over.
