    Default Power steering ?

    Re the '99 Burb (4x4, 454) I use. Lately in the cold mornings I have been noticing a pulsing through the steering wheel before everything warms up. The tires are in good shape and aired up as should be. P/s fluid is full. There isn't and problem with the engine that I know of. Has anyone experienced this, what is it? P/s pump?

    Thank you,

    No noises, and no problem steering. Just happens when driving straight. No idea when or if flushed.

    I might suspect the steering wheel position/speed sensor. Mine does the weird jiggle at full lock and the sensor is going bad aqccording to what I have read on this forum.
