Check fluid level. If full try removing line off of power steering unit and bleeding all old fluid out of unit. Than replace with new fluid. If this does not cure the problem , Replace power steering pump

SOURCE: steering problems

the windstar is very common for leaking powersteering racks, one way to check is to squeeze the boot that goes over the inner tierod and onto the steering rack, if it is squishy you will require a new steering rack

SOURCE: steering easy turning left but very hard steering

Hi, this problem is only caused by one thing, that is a failed Rack And Pinion Steering unit, you will need to have it replaced and the power steering pump flushed out.

It sounds like you need to replace it or you can get your power steering pump flushed out and give that a try. As for the rubbing noise I need more info. What are you doing to make it do that noise? Do you know where in the front?

Key wont turn in ignition

Often this is caused by steering wheel interlock. Try turning wheel a little back and forth while trying to turn key to see if key now turns. Some cars require stepping ******* brake pedal and if the switch at the pedal has failed or become dislodged this can happen.

While driving steering wheel locked up

Sounds like your power steering fluid is low. Steering suddenly becomes very hard, then frees up. Did you perhaps hear a whining noise at the time?. Under the hood, find the power steering pump and / or top up bottle, and check the level. Usually a small dip stick is built into the screw top and marked. Use only correct fluid type.

Try turning the key while moving the steering wheel left and right.

Sometimes they just stick because of the steering column lock.
