2003 SR5 2wd Sequoia steering binds and is stiff

Hello all! Sorry if this is an old topic but I couldn't find a thread for it. As the title says our 2003 2WD Sequoia's steering binds and gets stiff periodically. The fluid is at operating level and there are no leaks. the belt is present and does not squeal. The binding and stiffness is not constant and happens occasionally. Anybody out there with similar experience?

Your pump could be failing or air could be getting in somehow. Possible trash blocking line. Might want to start by flushing the system with new fluid and go from there.

Flushed the power steering system. It improved the issue a little bit. I am thinking the pump will need to be replaced soon. Not bad for a sixteen year old power steering system!
