Default Power steering problem??

Lately my car sometimes looses power steering when I turn the wheel to the left but than regains it back after a few seconds. I started noticing it when it started getting colder out, but I was thinking maybe its the kink in the power steering line off the little canister under the hood. When I installed the jlt cai they told me to relocate it, but the hose is so long that there is a kink in it. But its been like this for over a month now? Any Suggestions???

Yep. thats the problem.
First, get the kink out.
A stainless steel spring the
same size as the hoses ID
will help keep it from kinking.
The fluid circulates constantly
from the pump thru the rack
and to cooler back to the pump.
I would suspect the fluid has
gotten to hot and needs to be
replaced. Open the steering fluid
reservoir cap and smell the fluid.
Burnt smelling and nasty brown in color?
