Very weird shieeet. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

after i got my car back from a month of fixing, i went to sun peaks(ski resort) with the jeep.
after the whole trip when i was entering my garage, my steering wheel felt very stiff and the wheels made very weird sounds when i turned. i thot it was the garage floor so i tried it outside and it still made the same noise. it seems to only happen when its running at very low speed. does anybody know why this is happening?
video of the problem:


volume seeems a bit low, gotta turn it up to the highest..
thnx in advance if u can help..

Re: Very weird shieeet. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You check the Power Steering Pump. It's a black PUMP towards the front of the engine. Untwist it and see if there is any Fluid. If there isn't you might have a leak....
