Steering is stiff & difficult during turns.have used power steering fluid.2001 suzuki vitara xl7 v6 4dr

Its either the power steering pump, or the rack & pinion, (steering gear). It is only going to get worse, and maybe even dangerous, as the steering will jam and not turn. Have it inspected by someone you trust....soon! If it is the rack & pinion it may cost around $500 to have it replaced. Make sure that price includes the required front-end alignment. It will drive like new afterwards!!

My 2003 ford focus lost it's power steering, mechanic replaced the rack and pinion thing - lost steering again and now the mechanic says it is the power steering pump. The rack and pinion was replaced...

if the rack and pinion was not leaking or causing problems. then he may of made a wrong move! if the rack was fine before, and you just lost power steering. then it is most likely the power steering pump or the lines that go from rack to the pump. good-day ! if a rack goes bad, you will get a bad steering problem or just bad steering.

It is leaking power stering fluid and i cant find from where

Follow the pipes by hand from the power steering pump to the steering rack,you should get an oil deposit on your hand where the leak is. hope this works. check the pump it self for any could also be the seals of the steering rack and into the steering bellows and it won`t show you the leak at least until now.

You can buy a can of stop leak for power steering but I have had limited success using this. It would be the cheapest route to go to see if it will work.
