its actually in monroe, yes you could call it a road... but its the most challenging offroading i've ever done... its a pretty good time... i don't know if it would be worth it to come out from over there, but it would pretty cool if ya did
from what i noticecd it happened over like 3 or 4 months. i'm not sure on this but i don't think your pump has to be empty/low to go bad. i think sometimes they just go after a while... but then again it might not even be your pump, just my .02
mine got like that, and gradually got worse... i ended up changin the rack and the ps pump at the same time. the rack leaked causing my pump to run dry and burn up. i'm pretty sure it felt like that becasue the pump wasn't completely working to answer your question tho
