My power steering is going out. Not sure if it is the line or the rack.

(1994 Buick LeSabre)
in Loysburg, PA on October 01, 2012
My steering wheel is off and when I make sharp right turns the steering wheel is making a groaning noise. This only happens on right turns. I am not sure if it is the rack or the gears. It is getting harder to make sharp right turns. Like turning into a driveway or bridge. It doesn't do it on left turns. If rack goes out would steering lock up? I am just not sure what its causing it. The first time it happened it grinded in the steering wheel and was hard to turn.

if the p/s pump was bad it would be hard both ways. most likely the rack valving is going out. if it goes out completely you will have no p/steering but you will be able to slowly pull over.
