Re: Steering wheel is hard to turn, The Power steering pump was just replaced.
i am having the same problem. i just got my pump replaced too but now sometimes the wheel is real hard to turn at really slow speeds. My check engine light came on so i pulled the code and got p0551 - Power Steering Pressure Sensor Circuit Range/Performance - what the hell does that mean though? My fluid is Ok, the tension on the belts is OK because it was just tensioned. Anyways, i just deleted the code and will wait to see after how many drive cycles it comes back on. It doesnt fix the problem though..
