Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
While sitting still or while in park is when this issue is noticed most. There is a small amount of play in my steering wheel about 1.5" left and right before I feel the steering grab. It feels as if something has come loose or should be tightened. There are no noises in the pump, no leeks and I am using the Acura Steering Fluid

Check your inner/outer tie rod ends for movement. Raise the front of the car, tires off the ground, hold the tire at 9 & 3 o'clock positions, and see if there is movement in the wheel, without the steering wheel moving. Then if so check to see where the slack is.
