Steering is hard to turn ?


You most likely have one of two things going on here, the steering gear is defective or the power steering pump is defective (I assume the fluid is full). If the steering gear is the problem it may only be hard to turn in one direction, if the PS pump is the problem then it is always hard to turn no matter which way the car is turned. In the future please include the make, model, year and engine type of the vehicle so I can give you an answer that is directly related to your vehicle..

Take the power steering fluid cap off and see if fluid is circulating if it is the pump is fine. Most probable cause is steering rack is defective

You likely have a bad power steering pump or a hose that is leaking. Do not put any fluid other than power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir. if you do you will wreck the hoses and pump. Better not drive it till you get it repaired or you may ruin something else or have an accident.

Get a patch test at your local auto parts store to test for alkalinity. If it is off, drain and flush. If the fluid is normal, consider replacing your master cylinder.

Steering hard /loosing pwer at 40-55mph


Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.

2005 chrysler 300 steering problem


U have a failed steering rack internal seal, the leakage causes the hard spot, most likely the seal surface is scored allowing fluid to leak by at a certain position of the wheel. Try getting a bottle of LUCAS oil brand power steering sealer and conditioner, it really works. also check and see if the PS fluid is disclored, if it is get a cheap turkey baster and **** out as much fluid as possiable and add clean fluid.

Power steering probloms


Check for low power steering fluid. If the Fluid is at the proper level. "DO NOT OVERFILL". Then Check that the Power Steering Pump is working. Is the Serpentine Belt On the Pump Pulley? When you start the engine does the pulley spin? DO NOT TOUCH IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING!!!
Do you get any Weird Noises when you turn the steering wheel?

I am focusing on the Power Steering Pump because if the pump is working properly there really isn't much else that could cause hard steering.

Good Luck.
