I was driving to school and all of a sudden I realized it was very hard to steer. It was perfectly fine the day before, so it's not like it was slowly getting worse. Once I got home that day I looked under the hood to find a place to put the fluid, thinking this would be a simple fix. I couldn't find one so I looked in the owner's manual and found something about the EPS light, which is on, and I read that the power steering is electric. I have searched what I am supposed to do about it but I can't find anything helpful. My car has been this way for a couple of weeks and I really need to know what I am supposed to do to fix it. I don't know much about cars, so I need a detailed answer that will help me get to where I need to go to get this fixed. Also, I would like to know the cheap route to fix it and possibly a price estimate. I am wondering if this is just a small electrical issue, or maybe a pump failure of some sort. I would like to know if this is a common problem, and the level of difficulty to fix it. Thank you very much for your help!
