Icon5 Whoops

so i got off work and it was raining and behind my work we have this huge puddle when ever it rains so of course i go through it. Then im like hmm that was fun time to do it again so i go to pull a U Turn and i had very limited steering like hardly any at all im like oh ****! so i pop the hood see if i can hear/see anything which i couldn't so i go and pull the steering wheel to see if it fixed its self and it did.


so my question is what would cause this and has anyone else had a similar problem also anything i should check for?

Sounds like the belt got wet and was slipping for a minute. All is well.

^^ yeah, the belt got wet and it was slipping on the power steering pump most likely.
