Punto electric Power Steering is very effective . I would say its too effective you can steer with one finger. Without PS you will have to put in a lot of effort, especially when parking. With the PS option you should have abutton on the dash somewhere which says 'City' This when pressed makes the steering dangerously light Hope this helps Normally a Punto of that age wont have "City" mode however i cant be certain, your steering will ALWAYS feel heavier when your near enough stopped or moving slowly. It is like this is every car. If a Red steering wheel is displayed on your dashboard then this means the "city" option will not work.

Is it harder to drive a car without power steering?

If it's well designed... slightly, but not so much as to really matter unless you're driving a lot; you might get some fatigue in your arms then. The real problem is cars that are designed with power steering when the power steering goes out. Turning the steering wheel then can be really difficult.

What causes really h eavy steering on a fiat punto?

If the car is being driven with the "city" setting selected and suddenly the steering goes heavy and a steering wheel symbol appears in the instrument cluster then the electric power steering has failed. If you stop and the ignition is switched off and then back on again the steering should recover until the next failure which may be minutes, hours or days apart. The best solution is to deselect "city" driving and drive on normal setting which may never fail but if it does then the answer is to get a new steering column with integrated power steering fitted but it is costly £700 to £800.

Your 1994 dodge started making a noise while driving then power steering fluid was leaked out then the steering became really tightI drove 6 hours like this adding fluid when stopping is my pump bad?

Well......without fluid around the pump I am sure you didn't do it any good driving it that long. May I suggest you add some Lucas Power Steering additive and some power steering fluid to your pump, usually a 20%-80% mix. I would go heavier with a 40%-60% mix and see if your power steering unit still works. I hope you fixed the leak first before following this advice.
