Check the power steering reservoir, Your van has the hydro-boost power booster, it runs off the power steering, not vacuum! Check fluid and belts.

What is a good way to check if it is the power steering pump?

Disconnect a high pressure hose and plce end in a bucket, have a helper start the car, fluid should come out of the hose with a lot af force! Be prepared to turn on and off quickly!
