Sounds like a power steering pump. The pump provides pressure to move the steering in both direction, with no hydraulic assist it will be stiff.

2014 Chev captiva with stiff steering. 13K Mi.Fluids OK .Does this model have separate power steering belt?


Hi There! TAke a look at this site:
I found this: Steering / Electrical Power System: "this technical bulletin provides a procedure to inspect the steering gear for a normal condition of grease or sealant on exterior case of gear due to the manufacturing process."
On this site there was one person who had stiff steering but the wheel wells got full of snow. https://www.vehiclehistory.com/vehicle-problems/searching1.php?reloaded=1

I hope this helps you!

My power steering is stiff on my 1988 ford f150


Does it make a whining sound while trying to steer? Your power steering pump may be going out. Or low on fluid.

Power steering


Sounds like your pressure needs to be checked for your power steering pump or maybe if that is ok the spool valve seals inside your rack are worn and letting fluid past under pressure.

Power steering


your pump could possibly be going bad. if it sounds like the fluid is low even though it is full you need to replace the pump. also check the steering linkage and shaft to the steering gear box to make sure there are no obstructions. hope this helps...

Steering


I have researched this issue and it seems the problem may be the power steering pump, it seems it causes these kinds of loose of power assist and the resulting stiff/hard steering effort, the 1st thing to do is have the fluid checked in the pump, is it full? does it look discolored? if it is low you have a leak, if it is discolored or smells burnt then you may have steering rack issues as well, on occasion a flush of the fluid will help, many shops will flush the power steering for you at a reasonable cost compared to parts like the steering rack and pinion and the steering pump.
