Hello vdc442: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The steering rack is most likely your problem. The rack has seals inside of it. They start to leak internally and this causes the hard steer to one side. To repair the rack and pinion takes special equipment.The easiest way to repair is to replace the rack. This also takes special equipment in that the car will need realignment when done. Also this is a messy job.The changing of the rack can be difficult. But if you are mechanically inclined you should be able to do this. Make sure to chalk the tires and be sure to use Jack stands to support the car while working under the car.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of the answer you received. THis way we know your answer helped. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Find out what is causing noise from full steering lock on right and left , from stationery positon

Depends on what the noise sounds like. Some noise can be normal if you are holding the steering wheel at full lock . That is the pressure from the pump pushing hydraulic fluid through the steering box. If it is usually loud at the slightest turn..could be bad steering pump , leaking hose, leaking seal at steering box, even a bad belt.

Key wont turn

try turning the steering wheel hard over left or right (both) while trying to turn the key with the normal amount of force. (never force the key)
most likely, it is just the steering wheel lock stopping the key from rolling forward.

85 Jeep CJ7 no right turns and hard left turns

I have seen the frame crack from metal fatigue behind the steering box invisible to normal inspection. Watch for movement of the unit while someone turns your steering wheel. Possibly bent suspension components due to severe off-roading?

Power steering

It is normally on the left front part of the engine bay. On right hand drive anyway. It should not be hard to find. It's normally a brown coloured flask shapped bottle with a black cap.
You will need ATF fluid to top it up. Don't delay anymore. You may alread have done damage to the steering rack. The rack is obviously leaking so keep an eye on the fluid & if you're topping up more than once every couple of weeks then it's time to have it looked at by a pro as the rack will need replacing.

Best of luck :)

Steering problem

check your power steering belt. it may have broke or slipped off the pulley. if it seems ok check your fluid level. if it is still at normal operating level for hot or cold then your power steering pump may have just seized up and you may have to replace it.
