Sounds like you have a serious Power Steering pump problem and most likely a bad leak. You need to have it looked at and probably relace the power steering pump, belt and possibly the hoses.. if you have driven it much since it started sounding "LIKE A LAWNMOWER". If you are lucky...find the leak and stop it. Replace the fluid...maybe..just maybe it will work for awhile. Good Luck. John In Montana

As long as the engine is running you will have power assisted steering. With the engine not running you will not have power assist and it will be hard to turn but turn-able.
