It takes a considerable effort to turn the wheel at parking lot speeds and when I am parrallel parking, as if there is no power steering assist. During cold starts, I would hear a high pitch whining coming potentially from the p/s pump area.
The P/S fiuld has been flushed and the P/S belt tension appears to be good. The tire pressure and alignment is fine. I took it to the dealer, but they couldn't find the problem.
