Power steering belt or the power steering pump.

This is two of the things I know that could be wrong. The power steering pump is either bad or there is no power steering fluid in the pump causing it to have steering problems. Be sure to check the fluid level in the power steering pump.

The power steering on a vehicle can be jammed due to a rack and pinion issue in the steering column. Another possible cause could be that the power steering fluid may be low and the power steering pump may be going out.

power steering pump failure ----------------------- If it is a Dodge truck then i see alot of Power steering pump shafts that are broken. To test, then pull on the power steering pump pulley - if it pulls out then you have a broken pump shaft.

It is not possible to alter a car from a manual steering into a power steering car. The engines for the two types of cars are very different.
