The rack and pinion and new power steering pump has been replaced about a year ago. The weather got colder and the power steering was totally stiff, even after the car warmed up.

Still working on it
Power steering fluid was leaking. I could not keep fluid in it. I took it to a mechanic and they said it was the Power Steering Return Hose. I looked online and the part was way cheaper than they estimated the cost would be. They wanted to charge 340 to replace a $23 part. I do believe with the hose leaking caused my power steering pump to burn out.
Power steering pump has been replsced about 100000 miles ago. Pressure side hose was leaking. It was finger tight so I tightened it up. it slowed the leak but still whines. Gonna change pressure hose and check other connections.
