Hello, thanks for writing in. Assuming the power steering system has been properly bled, and there is no more air in the system, I suspect the pressure relief valve in the pump itself is stuck, not allowing pressure to "assist" steering effort.

If you need assistance with this, I would recommend having a steering issue inspection completed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
