Get it to a shop you may have a power steering censor leak. If your handy read on.. Check the fluid level if it's low don't add more change the censor first then refill. The issue is the fluid travels through the censor into your wiring harness to your computer and other censors shorting everything out. If your fluid is low pull the censor wire off it's next to the fill tank on the pipe connected to it, if you see fluid in that wire bring this truck to Dodge. Or as I said before if your handy and you suspect this is the case, wright back and I'll give you a call and walk you through this. This is a common serious problem the can destroy your computer and possibly you engine. It can be fixed for under a hundred dollors.

I just had this same issue on my 2001 Durango. I thought the power steering pump was gone.
Mechanic found that the main steering shaft was extremely dry and rusty. The elbow in the shaft was very stiff making the wheel harder and harder to turn. He replaced that part and its like I have new steering.
Part: $185.00
Labor: $39.00

Stiff power steering problem


you probably need to check your powersteering fluid. if it is low, try adding some, if it is full you need to replace the pump. Mine has went out in similar circumstances.

Ranger power steering stiff


Check power steering fluid, should be clean and clear, if it's cloudy or milky, then water has contaminated it, which will make it harder to steer., especially in cold weather. Check filler cap for small leak which will allow water to enter. Check front tires for low inflation, which will also make it hard to steer..

Power steering stiff - is it the pump ? or the steering rack?


If the wheel binds up or you encounter harder steering in one direction but not the other, it's your rack. Check for leaks, is it from the connecting hose or the rack itself. Can't find it? It's usually on the bottom rear of your engine,a tie rod on either side will attach to your steering knuckle. If your steering is stiff while wheel is centered or at maximum lock it's your pump.

Never worked on a mini in particular. Doing a quick google search and pumps (minus labour) seem to be 350-450$ depending where you go, unless there's some crazy book time i'm unaware of, 1300$ seems pretty steep.

Is there a noise when you turn? If there is, jack up the front end and remove the cap off your power steering resevoir. Slowly turn the wheel from lock to lock, while the engine is running, to bleed any air out of the system
If you replace one or the other, don't forget to do the above step.
