You might want to check the power steering belt to make sure it did not loosen up, if it tight then the fluid may be low. Hope this helped tim

An orange powersteering light came on and I can tell that the wheel is tough to turn. it has 49000 miles


Hi,
I would check to see if the fanbelt that drives your power steering pump is broken or perhaps slipping.
It's also possible that your power steering fluid reservoir is empty or low. Under the hood look for a small pump that is driven by a fanbelt. The lid of the unit should say something like Power Steering fluid or something similar. Undo the cap and check the fluid level when the engine is turned off.
If fluid and belt drive is OK, then its possible your power steering pump is broken.
Cheers,
Steve

Mazdaspeed protoge 03 is making that high pitch squeeling noise and i just replaced powersteering belt.also as soon as i turn a/c on it starts squeeling


That means the fanbelt on the alternator is not tight enough or needs to be changed, if the belt on powersteering goes via A/C than it might be too tight on the powersteering pulley.

Drunken steering


This system has an electronic variable orifice steering system. There is a sensor on the column at the base, it is a 3 wire sensor. This sensor will give you the tight or loose feeling. It is easy to change with basic tools. The orifice this sensor controls is a 2 wire solinoid on the pressure port of the power steering pump. If you have changed the pump look to be sure you still have this 2 wire solinoid. Good Luck.

Not a lot to go on! This truck is a diesel?????? If so check that your fanbelts are in good shape and adjusted propperly. That should fix it!
