whats the deal with EA's and maybe EBs etc doin this?

it happens during low speed/stationary tight turning, ie parking or pulling into tight driveway..

is it a problem with the pump or rack or somethin else?

reckon its a worn pump or rack?
possible air in system?
something wrong with the hose(sounds long shot to me)

car is something of a mystery (friend bought it with this problem)

the car got a bit of a hard bang to the front wheel so dont know if the steering is damaged or its just normal wear..

also car had no fluid in the reservoir (but steering was still light) so topped it up and it hasnt leaked since, but didnt fix shudder.......why was it empty?

also how do I blead it, if need be...

Shouldnt really need bleeding, i ran mine dry about 56 times. Had a leaky power steering switch and a leaky rack also. Just filled the reservoir when it ran out. Must have done wonders for the pump.... Is the power steering switch still connected?

Power steering switch tells the ECU to increase idle speed when steering is at full lock.
