I had the problem with the sound, and when i added the ATF fluid it went away... about the steering being heavy, i read in the service manual yesterday (by chance) that you you check and maybe tighten the V-Belt.

If he is low enough on fluid steering could become heavy but if adding the ATF fluid doesn't fix things then check the v-belt...

Always use ATF check see if you're leaking from the pump.

ATF is for girls. REDLINE is the way to go.
