Default Steering problem HELP

I got stuck in the snow sunday, and had a hell of a time getting out. Since then My power steering is sh*t, I put checked and put power steering fluid in, took it out for a drive and still have problems. To get specific, Its only bad when going 10-0 MPH. When moving its really only hard to turn the wheel half way around, When stopped its hard to turn for the entire way. Any ideas? thanks

Do you have Magnasteer power steering? If so, it sounds like it may be in a degraded status. There is an electrical harness connected to the steering actuator that may have been broken or came loose.

You don't have Magnasteer.

Can you check the condition of your belt and the tension marks on your tensioner assembly?
