Problems starting, killed while driving today and wont start now

Several possibilities. If it really cold, then frozen water in the gas tank, fuel line, pump, or injectors are likely. In which case gas line antifreeze is the best to try.

But if you had a carbuertor, I would also be mentioning choke freeze up from a bad stovepipe heater tube.

There is also the possibility of the water vapor from the PCV hose, icing up the air cleaner or air sensor.
Easy to look for iced froth.

It was fine its really cold outside and now its hard to turn the fluids are fine

See if it gets better as it warms up, it sounds like the steering fliud is just thick due to cold. You could have it changed, which may help.

It sounds like a problem with the transmission. The creaking could be a bad power steering pump or simply a dry/leaking rack & pinion.

Steering is stiff

the problem could be contamination in ps fluid.i would flush the system and replace fluid first .if that does not solve the pronlem you most likely need power steering pump. the steerjng box is very unlikely.
