Power Steering

2012 F250 4x4

At idle or slow speeds the steering is super hard. When accelerating or gaining speed it seems to function properly?? Not sure if the pump is out (or going out) or if maybe it is a bad line?? Any help would be appreciated!

Sounds like the pump. Make sure the drive belt is tight and the fluid is full before you buy a new pump

Make sure that your foot is off the brake. Power steering doesn't work when your foot is on the brake.
