    There is a valve that controls pressure. Yes it could be sticking and causeing your problem. It would be sticking due to wear on the rack and the metal get's ground into that piston bore which stops it from moving freely in it's bore.
    You can get a reman. rack and pinion pretty cheap anymore around $200 which would also make for a good time to get a performance alignment which will make a world of difference if done right.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Yeah but the return hose can leak also due to loose clamps. That one is a easy replace with some real hose clamps.
