Default Power Steering Help 03 Wrx

Hey guys, I've started have this problem this past month. When I go to make a turn, my steering wheel get stuck (feels like gooey) and I have to pull it back to straighten it out. When I pull it to straighten it out, it's easy after that for a sec then it's hard again. It's like, it get stuck until i jerk it to the side a little more then it's easy (has power) but then it goes back to being hard to steer. When I'm just sitting at a dead stop and turn the wheel, it's hard then it's easy and hard then easy. I flushed the fluid and everything was fine for 3 days then the problem came back. Today, I changed the power steering pump and it's still doing it. I don't know what else to look at. Could it be that there's air bubbles in the system? The fluid is at the same level all the time. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Could be a bad rack and not the pump.

How's the idle when you are turning the wheel? Is there any slipping of the belt initially?
