    I agree the pump probably blew out. Even though it looks fine from the outside it's probably all messed up on the inside. A way to check it is take the pressure line that comes out of the power steering and put it into something filled with power steering fluid. Start the car and turn the wheel. Have a buddy look in the fluid there should be pressure and the fluid level should rise. If not replace it and get a new pump! Hope this helps...
