This is generally cause from a air locked system. You will have to arm strong turn the wheel to the side that isn't working and back several times to get the air out of the system to get it working again.
I recommend jacking up the car to make this task easier.
You will also have to add more power steering fluid to the system.

99 Olds alero will only turn to the right. On quick inspection found that the rack and pinion moves with turning the wheels. Is it supposed to?


The whole rack & pinion does NOT move! Only the rod out of either end of it. If the main body, where the hoses connect, is moving the mounting bolts are missing, or broken.

Normally any vehicle with rack & pinion steering, that will not turn left equals a bad rack & pinion.
The "wont turn left" is the classic industry wide indicator that the rack & pinion is worn out.
