It sounds like you need to replace your power steering pump asap before you have none at all.

I agree that you will have to have it looked at.

If the noise is a squeal then belt is slipping, but it could be either a worn belt, or a bad pump. If it is a groaning noise, then again, it could be a bad pump, or a bad steering rack, or it could just be low fluid.

The only way to know for certain is to have someone look at it.

Check for loose belt on the power steering pump. It is trying to slip and engages the pulley on the pump intermittently!

It seems like it could be but if you dont really know what you're doing, it's best to take it to somebody that does.

Nobody can diagnose the car without seeing it in person. First check the power steering fluid with the car off, make sure it's at the proper level. If it is, take notice if the noise is coming from around the pump, if so replace the pump with a delco power steering pump and dont forget to have the shop flush and bleed the system as well.

Car is in the park and you have to manage the steering wheel, it will be the condition that has to be confirmed well before buying a new car.
