if it is a belt driven unit I would be checking the belt condition and tension. If the belt is old /cracked or hard then the water will allow the belt to slip until it dries out
If it is an electric pump then check wire and harness connections .
find the adjuster, (you didnt say engine option, type. so., cant answer)
loosen the adjuster, and take off belt , then put back, then adjust to spec. (the FSM covers this .) as does alldata.com.

General advice:If not stear at all even by force,must be ignition barrel lock pin locked.If stearing hard,is power stearing pump related:ceck stearing oil level/ceck belt.if the power stearing is electrical ceck fuses,engage power stearing town button.Cheers.
There are lot of things why the car won't pass a certain speed. You may need to replace the automatic transmission fluid for if it's burnt the shifting will be hard. The torque converter may be worn out, if it's worn out the gear won't change and this will surely need replacement. Unfastened seat belt, the car tends to be on limp mode when the seat belt is off so you may want to fasten it.
These are few causes and I strongly suggest that you start with the transmission fluid replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
Your belt may be worn & slipping. Check on the inside of belt for lost belt v grooves. If O.K., you may have a a bearing starting to sieze i.e. on alternator, power stearing, air conditioner condenser, or idler pulley. You will be able to check this by slackening belt & spinning each pulley. Good luck & Merry Christmas!
Check the serpentine/driving belt. It looks like it is loose or broken.
Water pump and stearing pump usually drive by the same belt. So overheating and stearing problems might have the same cause.
Hope that helps
sounds like you lost a belt
is your battery light on? check under the hood and see if you can find the alternator if its not spinning you lost the belt. that might also be the belt the turns your powersteering pump
