My steering wheel is hard to turn left or right.
Hi there. If it is hard to turn in either direction, then it may have a bad power steering pump. I typically start by checking the engine belt and the fluid in the reservoir. If these items are fine then the pump is more than likely bad. I would typically replace the pump and flush all of the fluid from the system. If I could not tell for sure, I would test the pressure coming from the pump.
