Is it hard to steer, or impossible to steer? Don't drive the car until you've checked the serpentine belts and pulleys for damage.

i had a '96 riv that pulled into my shop that just suddenly lost control of their steering. their belt got shredded. i would definitely look at the serp belt. if that is fine then i would look at the power steering fluid and pump itself. if your tie rod snapped then you still be able to turn the wheel freely, but only one wheel would turn. let me know what they say.
