I have the same car and don't get bent at this answer .... but if you bought it used and don't know the full extent of the car check the computer and change the steering to low or normal effort ... High effort is harder than my z28 used to be ... and going around entrance/exit ramps you really have to put some effort into it ...

You likely have a bad power steering pump or a hose that is leaking. Do not put any fluid other than power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir. if you do you will wreck the hoses and pump. Better not drive it till you get it repaired or you may ruin something else or have an accident.

Hard to turn the steering wheel when making turns and smoke coming from underneath the engine. Making a rubbing sound. Any idea what the problem may be? There is plenty of power steering fluid


check the belt that goes to the Power steering pump, if its tight and not slipping, your pump itself may have gone out, remove the belt and see if there is any play in the pulley as you turn it, and wiggle it side to side and top to bottom

Powersteering is hard to steer fill reservior with fluid but fluid gone in 10 mins


You need your power steering repaired by a professional, it is obviously losing oil and that is why it is hard to steer.

Power steering fluid leak somewhere behind right front tire, but can't locate the source.


Add power steering fluid, have some one start engine, and turn wheel as far as it will go, that will put pressure on power steering pump, now you can look for the leak, while it's under pressure, good luck.Hope this was very helpful.

I changed engines in my 98 continental and now the power steering doesn't work. It isn't leaking and the hose isn't pinched. I checked the belts and I still can't figure it out. It was working just fine...


You may have air in the system. Start the car and move the steering wheel back and forth and keep checking the P/S fluid level while the car is running. Keep adding fluid when it's low. Keep turning the steering wheel back and forth and sooner or later the P/S system will start working again.

Very hard to steer wheel in my 2003 gmc yukon and there is plenty of steering fuid in it


Turn car off - Remove power steering cap, and turn streering wheel hard right or left and fluid should pour out (cover surroundings with rags.) If so, check your power steering pump.
