So I've noticed when I start my truck and drive it on a cold day, the steering is really forgiving, sorta like an "overboosted" power steering feeling. Its not "bad" nor does it affect how I drive, but I just notice its twice as easy to turn the steering wheel than when I'm driving on a warm and hot day. If anything I would think the opposite is true, unless I have too much fluid in the lines, and the warmth causes an expansion and slows the responsiveness of it. Oh and if I don't drive it for a few days, the steering tends to be lighter after that too, and in cold weather it gets really loose if it has sat for a few days. Just wondering what causes this.
