You may want to check this with your dealer, but not too recently the cav and sunfire had a recall on the Power Steering. Something about a bad gear and power failure when making left hand turns. They would either replace the faulty gear or the whole rack and pinion assembly. Either way have it checked out. A steering problem is not a nice problem. It may cause accidents or death.

What is the purpose of the steering damper?

It's primary purpose is to control excessive feedback into the steering wheel. For example, when you hit a large pothole, some vehicles would feed back that energy into the steering shaft causing the steering wheel to jump left or right suddenly which could cause the driver to loose control of the vehicle. Not all vehicles need one of these.

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.

It sounds a bit like a water pump that went out all of a sudden. Losing the belt would kill the power steering, so maybe the pump bearing failed and the belt burned or jumped off.
