SOURCE: no power steering

could be steering rack itself. bring fluid level down a bit and with someone steering back and forth, see if there is any swirling fluid movement. if so, pump should be ok. just steering wheel back and forth a few minutes should purge any air. belt is tight i assume.

Hard steering

The pump may not be working as and is now under stress caused sometimes by the power steering pipes braking down on the inside of the pipe. You will have to replace the pump and check the pipes from the power steering pump.

Power steering does not work

It sounds like either your power steering pump is dead, or, more likely, the belt that turns your power steering pump is loose or needs to be replaced

I replaced my power steering pump in my 1994 toyota pick up and the power steering still won't work? What else could be wrong?

If you are saying the steering is difficult to turn you could have a blocked hose or a problem in the gearbox.
Or something in the front suspension such as a faulty ball joint.

One possibility is that the steering rack needs to be replaced. If it is binding up, it takes more work for the power steering pump and puts an extra burden on the pump. Since you have replaced it twice, this seems very likely.
