is it dangerous to drive if stearing is stiff or tight?
Yes, what if you we're in an emergency situation and you couldn't move your vehicle out of the way? Have it look at by your local mechanic for your safety and everyone else on the roads.
Maybe its just power stearing fluid right?
Could be, what is the level, is the system making noise, any leaks?
just went out to check fluid is full so it has to be mechanical right
most likely the u joint in the steering shaft is bad
