It could be anything from a suspension problem to a bad power steering pump, or steering rack. I would have it checked out by a mechanic before the cause fails completely.

Leaking power steering fulid

Most common cause is a bad power steering line. Clean off the power steering pump and refill it with fluid. Then, while the car is running, have someone turn the wheel from side to side while you observe the power steering unit. If you're unable to see fluid leaking from the fittings on the lines, the leak will likely be due to a kink in the line further down.

Steering will shutter when you turn.

Check your outer tierod ends they may be worn.Also check your inner tierod end bushings.You have play coming from your steering rack or outer ends.

Power steering pump wines and stiff like when

If front end steering linkage and ball joints are free, likely the pump has worn out and is not making enough pressure.

What would the approximate cost to repair a 2001 ford taurus power steering. The car is hard to steer.

Cost at a shop to fix it $300 and up. Its really not that hard if you want to do it yourself. The power steering pump is located a the top of the motor its black and has 4 9 or 10 mm bolts holding it.
1. Remove belt
2. unbolt steering pump
3. unclamp hoses from pump keep them raised so fulid don't run out.
4. Replace pump
