Very hard to turn steering wheel

Um... the video didn't demonstrate anything, only showed the steering wheel and the key.

If the engine is running, the tires aren't jammed against solid objects, there's no noise from the pump, the belt is tight, the power steering reservoir is full of fluid, and the steering wheel is still very hard to turn... then I suspect that the power steering pump has simply worn out badly and needs to be replaced.

I was driving making a turn It felt like I lost control of car the steering wheel was hard to turn like locked up. had to put it in N and park it Audi a6 1996 I do need to change water pump but it was...

Check the power steering fluid level and add fluid if it is low. Check to see if the steering rack is leaking. You can check it by removing the tie rod boots to see if fluid comes out. Make sure the belt is tight. If the pump works and no leaks, you may need steering rack replacement. If you do need to replace your Steering Rack, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews

Power steering

Check power steering reservoir for fluid. Also check for any leaking oil brom your steering rack. If pump is belt driven check your belt for tightness and any cracking. Any cracking and it is time for a new belt. I am going to bet on low fluid though.

94 Camry steering hard to turn like it has no power steering. It has the rack replaced and steering knuckle replaced

Does the power steering have fluid in it. Is the belt on the pump. With it running take the cap off of the pump and see if fluid is moving around. If u feel the steering knucle is to tight u can also take the tie rod off and see if it turns free. Also go back to who fixed it and say its not right, Make it right. Most garages give 12 month or 12.000 mile warranty.

Power Steering Gets Hard When Swtiching From Reverse To D4

I am not sure what type of car this is or year,make and model or engine size, i will try to help to the best of my abilty.
The first thing is to make sure the power steering fluid is full. this would be the first thing to check.
The next thing is to make sure the power steering belt is tight. A loose belt would cause the steering to get tight aand then loosen up.

While checking the fluid level look at the fluid, see if its dark and dirty as bad fluid could cause a problem also. not to common but will cause problems.

The other problems would be things you would not be able to check unless you are a tech and have the tools. the power steering pump or steering rack may be the problem also and this may be the begininng of the problem, the way it happens sometimes is that in the morning the steering may be hard to turn and as the engine warms up the steering gets better.
This is due to a bad steering pump or the steering rack, the pressure would need to be tested in the pump, this is to make sure the pump is working within specs.

In your case i would check the steering fluid and the belt and if the steerin is good now i would not worry about it until you start having more often hard steering problems. the reason i say this is so that the problem can be found. if the cars acts up once in a while then its hard to test, but when it gets worse thats when you test,
good day.

My chrysler voyager 2lt got problems with power steering fluid full but making whining noises and very heavy

Belts tight? If so check your steering rack unit for leaks (wetness) around ends of seals.Also where rack is mounted for loose bushings that rack mount in. Look sort of like stablizer bushings. Possible causes would be bad Steering Rack or pump itself.

My steering wheel in a nissan altima is gering hard

If your steering is getting hard to turn, there are a few easy things to check before you assume the worst.. Open the hood and check to see if your power steering pump reservoir is full of fluid and the belt is on and tight. If these all look good, you most likely have some friction or binding in your steering rack and pinion assembly,and that is replaced as an entire unit.
