I own a 2005buick lacrosse I was driving in snow and I was doing donuts (don't ask) now my steering wheel is extremely hard to turn, what could it be and is it easily fixable"


putting all the variables together( splashed up snow, high rpms, quick actions of the steering wheel requiring constant pump pressure and the sudden loss of power assist) I would suspect that the power steering belt is loose or missing or needs replacing

2 possibilities.
1.most likely your rack and pinion is out due to faulty power steering pump.
2.less likely your power steering is out.

Whine usually occurs on tight turns maximising pump output and/or pump may be worn and needs replacement. Leakage can be from pump reservor,connection, or power rack and pinion steering assy. Spray off any area with a sign of fluid with a brake clean or carb. cleaner and look for signs of leakage.

My 2005 Buick LaCrosse makes a whiny noise. It is worse when going around corners. I notice when I take my foot off the gas the noise lessons significantly.


I am guessing the steering rack is starting to go bad. That is quite expensive to fix. The whining noise is the rack sucking air due to the steering fluid has leaked out. You can check your power steering fluid level and add some with stop leak to see if that helps. The filler cap is at the rear of the engine on the passenger side and is quite hard to get to. Be sure to not reach down to remove the cap unless the engine is cool. There is a high risk of burning yourself on the exhaust manifold.
