Sounds like it is. but also make sure the pump has correct preasure in the am. it does sound like the rack, they wont turn until car is warm sometime they turn one way but hard to turn the other way until hot. good luck.

2004 Kia sedona replaced power steering pump and belt even changed the rack but still hard to turn.gets hard then normal and back and forth . as you are turning . help.


Lower ball joints and strut bearings. But these can cause a stiff turn. Nothing like when you loose your power steering. You could have bought a bad rack. Been there. I started rebuilding all mine.

the steering lines fittings are different sizes it could be the sensor however make sure all the air is bleed out of the system first. to do this with the engine running turn the steering wheel full left and full right until you hear no noise then check the steering fluid level and repeat as needed.

HARD AND STIFF STEERING


It won't hurt to drive it. Steering will just be stiffer without the power steering. Once you are moving, it will be easier to steer.
Don't know the problem, a shop will have to check it out. But it is okay to drive it.

You have to repair it, or if it is loose at the connections, then tighten it. Otherwise if you do not repair it, then your powersterring will not work, sterring wheels will become stiff when driving.

Power steering is stiff some times on my kia sedona


It might be a failing power steering rack as well...classic symptoms are very stiff when first starting vehicle or at a stoplight, then loosens up as rpms increase.
