make sure your power steering fluid is ok this is a litle harder to inspect as the resivour is located at the power steering pump could also be a bad pully or belt on your drive belt for your alt power steering and water pump as well as the a/c circuits any of these could make a whinny noise its the process of elimation

Why is the steering hard?


You need to give more specifics. Some systems have varible rate steering which will make the steering tighter at high speeds and lighter at slower speeds.
Or just check your power steering fluid level. If the pump is making a noise or the belt came off that could also be it.

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...


excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

I at about 89K on my '04 Jetta TDI and had the same issue. I was due for my 90K service to I took it to the VW dealer. They replaced the power steering pump and belt tensioner. This is the second tensioner that I have replaced this year. Thought the first one went out just because. Now it seems that the power steering pump was the cause. With both fixed, I have no scream and rattle from the engine. You might want to have both checked/replaced on yours. I'll let you know if the noise comes back. Good luck.

I hear a noise coming from the serpentine belt area. Sounds like a bearing. I just put on a new belt and the noise is still there. The tensioner seems to be working fine. What could this be?


Each pulley is has a bearing. The best way to check it is to remove the belt and spin each pulley, (except the crank pulley wont spin) and listen to each one normally a tensioner pulley or idler pulley is the problem. Note: not all pulley will turn with the exact freeness in feeling, for instance it will be harder to turn the power steering pulley than it will to turn the ideler pulley but just listen to the noise. If you got a bad one it will sound like grinding rocks. Good luck.

Whining noise in engine


Checking the level of the power steering is a good start. The pump is mechanical, driven by the serpentine belt, and cannot be turned off. Your steering may seem normal but if you let it go, low fluid can destroy the pump.
