power steering loss when turning

Has anyone else had this issue? power steering cuts out almost every time the car takes a turn, usually beyond 40 degrees or so ( off and on ramps etc ) ive read possible problems for this being obviously a bad pump and also dirty fluid but the pump is brand new and has new atm fluid in it and was bled. maybe just another flush and refill? sediments possibly caught in there? power steering pump was replaced because there was a leak and it ran the reservoir dry and power steering would not work when leak was fixed and new fluid was added. now its fine with the exception of it cutting out around turns.

anyone have similar issues? appreciate it.

Nope, maybe just try to drain it and refill in hopes there's a clog of some sort.
Kinda odd it's at sharp cornering tho

Maybe your working out your bug. It may go away, it's up to you though weather you wanna just be on the safe side with your investment. (I would)

I bet it's a bubble/air in the line somewhere. If it's subsiding, I'd give it a little time.

A possibility but I probably would go no more than another week to see if it subsides.

Yea, im not leaning towards air as the culprit anymore. I bled it like 4 times for about 5 minutes each and its been a week or two and the system would have self bled by now anyway. Belt is tight. Im gonna just flush it out again. GOOD. If the problem continues I may have to try another pump or maybe the rack took a crap. No signs of metal that i can see in the fluid but wutever, ill figure it out.
Just annoying when your ride isnt 100% healthy.
