Your car is out of, or low on power steering fluid. (make sure you buy the proper steering fluid for your car, ex: Honda's only safely take Honda steering fluid)

Check the following Once you have checked the fluid level and the problem persists, rev the engine slightly to see if the steering improves. If it does, it means the flow rate of your pump is low and needs attention/replacement. If it doesn't improve, have your pump tested by a power steering repair shop. There is a slight possibility of there being a problem in your rack if the shaft teflon is damaged or the teflon rings in the spool valve have worn grooves into the housing.

power steering fluid is fluid that makes the power steering pump work and it goes in the power steering pump under the hood.
