Question about 1999 Suzuki Vitara
Fine o ne minute went to have dinner came out,then steering wheel, very hard to turn ,whats the least expensive solution on tight budget
Please go out and open the hood and see if there is a belt on the power steering pump. It is one of the pulleys that is using that really long serpentine belt. Next, check the belt tension to be sure it is tight. Then, check the power steering fluid, there should be a short dipstick on the bottom of the cap. If all of those are OK, find a way to jack up the whole front end of the car.
You will need to VERY surely secure the car from moving or rolling. With the front wheels not touching the ground, and the transmission in Park, start the motor and try to turn the front wheels. If the turning is still hard, suspect the "rack & pinion" or one of the tie-rod ends, or even one of the ball joints. Some part is likely "frozen up". You should not plan to drive the car without this fixed.
