Does it not allow you to turn at all, or the wheel turns but the tires don't turn?

Any noises or feeling when you try it?

it kinda feels like the powersteerings gone, but everything is fine with it.... its more like if i try to turn the steering wheel it wont move to the right or left easly, and then if it decides to actually turn the whole car jerks in the direction of the wheel like as if something is holding it up..... axles are all good, and so are turnin rods...

sounds like the power steering has frozen up during the snow , can you jack the car up ? there might be something stuck in the steering / that attaches to the rack n pinion

well thats pretty much where it leaves me at those two options? either its my steering rack but no way to know until i go to the deal an check, or it could be my power steering pump but i dont have a way to test it. i mean i could spend the money and get one and do it, and take the chance to fix it, or i can be out the money and then have to go to the dealer?

well pop the cap off the your resevior and see if the fluid is bubbling or circulation inside.

get another person to try to turn the steering wheel left and right while you look at the resevior, if the fluid is moving then the pump is still going, which now leads you to the steering rack.

if you had a bad power steering pump , and you didnt know it and has driven the car for awhile, there is a chances that you did damage to the rack as well.

also as I said try jacking up the front with jack stands and try to turn the wheels with your hand ( not the steering wheel but the acutally rims/wheels/tires )

you may be able to loosen it after the car is jacked up and keep an eye of the power steering fluid , make sure its not leaking as well.

no bubbles.. all lines are good

ok yeah i did that and for the moment it turned with ease, my father said he drove it all day to day and it was fine, but when i got out of work at 4 and i took it for a drive it became really tight and couldnt turn the wheel at all, kinda felt like the car turned and couldnt move the wheel... but i literally just checked it and its fine again so im road test it again... im guessing if it does it again it must be the rack?
