The most common reason for power steer failure is fluid leaks. On power steering pump, you should check behind p/s pulley for leak at the shaft. On the rack and pinion(steering gear) check rubber boots at both ends and check for leaks where steering shaft is connected to rack and pinion input shaft. Check pressure hose at crimp fittings for leaks.
