Usually due to either low steering fluid as MR asked, but probably more
common is the drive-belt for the power-steering pump is too loose, and is
slipping on load (turning front wheels).

Examine the drive-belt carefully for any cracks or perishing. Replace if so
effected. If OK, tension belt so you can only deflect belt (by pushing on
it ) about 1cm or 1/2inch half way between crank-pulley and steering pump
pulley. If the belt is too loose, you will be able to deflect it by greater
than 1/2inch.
