Hi all, New to the forums so not sure if this is covered else where.

I have recently purchaced a 2008 2.0 tdci edge mondeo and have noticed that when the car engine is cold and you first go to start using the steering, the steering feels like it has a notchy feeling when the wheels are straight and you turn left or right from straight...once the engine warms up (eg power steering fluid is hot, 5 or so mins) the notchy feeling is away or appears to be away.

I have noticed that the power steering fluid is engine oil colour and not red like ATF.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance
