With the car running, turn the steering wheel hard to the left and then hard to the right until it squeals. This will release any air pockets that may be in the line. This would only happen if the fluid was ever low. Secondly, check at start up to see that the serpentine belt on the pump pulley is not slipping at start up. If it is, change the belt. Typically it’s loss of power steering fluid pressure that causes the steering wheel to be hard to turn. Hope this helps!
thanks i will try it, i bought the car used with 54000 on it from the dealer. dont have any info on previous maintenance records
