My power steering pump has always whined a bit. This morning it is very hard to turn the steering wheel while the truck is at idle if I get the revs up it seems to become easier. Do you think the pump has finally packed it in?
Do you

First inspect the belt to make sure it doesn't have slack in it or any damages, then make sure the power steering fluid is at the proper Fill mark. If these are OK then yes, suspect a faulty power steering pump.
