power steering problem

Hi all I just got another wrangler 1988 6 cyl man tran My power steering is intermittent. Throughout the revolution of the steering wheel it has power and then loses it . I checked the fluid and belt tension. Are there any tests i can do to see if its the pump or the box??? thanx

Is it consistently the same spots in the wheel? if so - then I'd say it's the box. If it's random, it can be either, but if your pump is whining or hissing a lot - I'd say it's that then.

Sounds like the pump is bad. Either that or something is stuck in the lines or the control valve that is built into the pump. Keep us informed.
