First, check steering fluid level, then check fan belts. if thats not it, your power steering pump is probably bad.

Power steering went out on my 2002 pt cruiser

Please check the TYRE pressure if this seems OK then you must hoist the car and check the steering with the wheels up . If this is not found to be free the power steering section must be checked in detail starting from the drive, the hydraulics to the ball joint links. Loss of fluid or fault in pump cannot be ruled out. check the drive belt which if failed will be indicated.

Power steering keeps breaking the hose and makes a whining noise

If you get some odd noise from steering when you are turning tight, the pump doesn't get enough oil.
At first check the steering oil level is a pit more than "high".

If it is not help, there is sometimes dust in oilfilter?
(undocument problem)
The streering oil filter is inside the steering reservoir (oil tank?).
I took the reservoir out and clean the filter and now it is ok.

Check engine light

low power steering fluid wont but low power steering pressure can. there is a switch in the rack that sends messages to the pcm.the switch can be replaced separate from the rack.if the rack is leaking it needs replaced but if the switch is leaking it can be replaced separate.
