If someone has adjusted the adjustment at the top of the steering box too tight you will have that type of feel in the steering.

SOURCE: In my 2000 chevy tracker 4x4 the steering gets stiff at times

have some one start your car and turn the wheel back and forth and have them tell you when it gets tight. Then look for anything getting hung up on the steering arm, or anything at all

Sounds like your pressure needs to be checked for your power steering pump or maybe if that is ok the spool valve seals inside your rack are worn and letting fluid past under pressure.

Eps light on and steering become stiff in hyundai accent 2007


Take it to the dealer.
Your car uses an electric motor to provide power assisted steering instead of hydraulic fluid. The light means there is a problem and a code should be set in the computer memory.
The dealer is the best source for service.

The steering is stiff and the fluid is full


Sounds like a power steering pump. The pump provides pressure to move the steering in both direction, with no hydraulic assist it will be stiff.

My power steering is stiff on my 1988 ford f150


Does it make a whining sound while trying to steer? Your power steering pump may be going out. Or low on fluid.

My power steering resevoir was empty. I noticed it because my steering was suddenly stiff this morning. Nothing in my manual said anything about a particular type of PS fluid so I went to Walmart and...


You will have to look where it is leaking from and get it fixed. Running without power steering fluid will eventually burn you power steering pump out and yes if you power steering is that hard to turn when out of fliud, it is dangerous.

Battery and brake fluid warning lights and steering very stiff


You may have had a belt come off. Pop the hood and check the belts. Keep an eye on the engen temp. the belt also runs the water pump.
