Long shot but....

Has anyone had a problem with the Power steering sometime working and other times not?
I dont get belt squeel, but sometimes I have excellent power steering - then poof- gone.
Is this a common issue?

No, I haven't but I'm familiar with hydraulics. There could be air in the system, or not enough fluid (probably not). Check those things. Also maybe occasionally the belt slips from the pump?

I was thinking air, but I followed the manual instructions (lock to lock hold) but no good
there should be another way to diagnose if there is air trapped in the lines.
