Belt health is good. I replaced belts, plugs and wires at 100K (about 20K miles ago), and I visually and manually inspected the belt per a recommendation I read here yesterday.

The sound (groaning when I turn the wheel lock to lock) and heaviness of the steering makes me suspect that she (Ava von Gartner) is cranky from having sat too long.

I'll keep driving her around the island (Alameda Island, SF) this weekend, and then to work(60 miles R/T) next week and see if it clears up.

If not, I'll report back here for recommendations and next steps.

As always, I fully appreciate the support and insight from all your 107 drivers and techs!

Many thanks!
Anton
