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 cant locate where to put power steering fluid in my 1998 park ave ultra


The power steering pump cap is on the passanger side of the engine and between the engine and back fire wall. It is a very tight fit to get the cap off and back on.

2005 cobalt stalling out


If the power steering is tight and does not loosen up,i would say the power steering pump is locked up.With the engine not running ,remove the drive belt from the engine.Try and turn the power steering pulley with your hand.It should be easy to turn,turn it 4 or 5 times all the way around.If you can not move the pulley,or it stops,or gets tight turning it all the way around,then it is a bad power steering pump.This is something you will want a mechanic to do.If I can help,let me know.
