The SUV is overheating, and the belts are squeaking. It's hard to turn the steering wheel when I'm at a dead stop and try to go.
The power steering pump belt is not turning and can be the cause for the loss of steering. The water pump may be seized causing the overheating problem. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, check the system to diagnose both the overheating issue and the squeaking noise. They will be able to perform the needed repairs to resolve these problems.
