Default 97 Grand Am 3.1 power steering jerking, difficult.

The steering wheel is sometimes jerky and can become very hard to turn. Mostly happens when the engine is first started and cold. Fluid is full.

Maybe I can just change the fluid? I'm hoping I don't need a new pump.

Default

sometimes fluid flushes help but it may have something wrong with the rack and pinion called morning sickness what i have done to correct this problem or at least make it somewhat better is dump some lucas power steering additive in it and see if it helps but i would try to flush it out and see if that helps it might be all it needs is the power steering real noisy or low on fluid?
