My wife has a 95 Legacy, 2.2, AWD, Automatic, with about 220,000 miles on it. During a road trip this weekend while going up a mountain and around some switchbacks, there was a lot of noise coming out of the front end when we would make a sharp left turn. It wasn't a rattle or a clicking - it was more of a whirring. This was going uphill, under load. Several miles later, the steering wheel started to shake a whole lot - it almost felt like a blown tire. After 20 or 30 seconds though, it stopped shaking. The rest of the 400 miles of the trip were good though. It did the steering wheel thing a couple of months ago, and my mechanic checked it out, but didn't find anything.

 

Anyone have a theory?

check your power steering reservoir for proper level of power steering fluid, it just may be a bit low. Maybe check the belt driving the power steering unit to see if it is good and tight.
