The Rack should loosen up as you drive it a while - took a long trip in my Geo for the stiction to go away - the xB is starting to get better now also. Maybe changing the PS oil is going to help me more also.
The tranny fluid was changed 10k ago. Plus I have a tranny cooler so I shouldn't worry about tranny stuff. I don't want to touch the car anymore. It's not very reliable, screwing with anything will just make it worse. I already spent $1000+ on repairs in 1.5 years that I owned it.

The lower mpg is due to stuff breaking and me driving more agressivly. I can make a 29mpg tank If I wanted.
