Have you tried flushing the system with fresh p/s fluid? Possibly blocked up somewhere.

I forgot to ask, is there a pattern of when the power steering cuts in and out? If so, disconnect the outer tie rod ends and run the car and turn lock to lock. If problem goes away, look at the ball joints. Possibly siezed? Just need to rule out components one step at a time.
