Several possibilities that come to mind. Leaking internal seals that allow fluid to pass through them until it warms up and provides good steering. Low fluid level. Bad pump. Binding struts, tie rods or ball joints. Very weak arms.

A steering wheel may be hard to turn because the power steering fluid might be low. It also could be that there is problem with the power steering pump.

The steering wheel in your 1996 may be hard to turn because you are low on power steering fluid. You can add some on your own and your steering wheel will not be hard to turn.

Check the power steering pump for fluid as well as make sure that the pump is working and the belt it tight. If the pump is not working then the steering will be hard to turn.

If your steering wheel is hard to turn, and you have checked to see that the belt is tight, and that you have steering fluid, the problem could be your pump. It might also be the compressor.

Hard power steering means there is little to no fluid left in the system. The power steering system should be flushed and checked for leaks.

The power steering fluid is thicker when cold therefore it is harder to turn the wheel.

Power steering fluid helps your steering wheel turn easily. If you have dirty power steering fluid, it may be hard to turn your steering wheel while driving.

You probably need to add power steering fluid.

power steering is easier and you do not have to turn the wheel as hard as manually.

It is very hard to turn the steering wheel and/or a whining or squealing noise when you turn the steering wheel.

It shouldn't be that hard. Maybe you are low on power steering fluid. Or the pump could be bad.

Low power steering fluid, improper drivebelt function, defective power steering pump or steering gear.

Grab your steering wheel at the top and pull hard to the left and turn the key at the same time.
