Purpose
The power steering system enables you to turn the steering wheel easily. When the car is not running, it is extremely hard to turn the steering wheel. When the car is running, it is the power steering system that helps you turn the steering wheel so easily.
Major Role
The power steering system includes: power steering pump, fluid, belt, hoses and steering gear (rack and pinion). The steering gear connects the steering wheel to the suspension stub axles. When the steering wheel is turned, the power steering sends fluid to the steering gear that applies the pressure needed to turn the wheels.

Part Description
A Power Steering Pump is usually mounted on the engine and turned by the crankshaft pulley that provides pressure for the power steering system. This is what makes turning the steering wheel much easier at slower speeds, and this option is standard on all cars manufactured today. Please make sure to know about the resevior on the top of the pump for holding the steering fluid. Most pumps are sold just as the pump unless you specify that the resivour is also required. Also, verify if you need the pulley that attachs to the crankshaft or not.
