Default Civic Power Steering problem??

The power steering on my 97 Civic has never worked very well since I bought the car. The steering wheel has always taken more effort than it should to turn. I can hear the power steering pump whine while the hood is open, but the resevoir is full. I have tired multiple times to bleed the system by turning the wheel side to side and the resevoir burps fluid out, but never seems to improve the steering.
Someone said that my problem might be in the valve at the base of the colum before it goes into the rack. Is there any way to troublesoot the valve, the rack it self, or the pump to determine what is not working properly. Is there another way to bleed the system to insure there are not any air bubbles or blockages?

Thank you for any input!
