Why is my steering wheel so hard to turn when the engine is running on my infinity q 45t ( 1997)

Check your power steering fluid and make sure it is up to the max level on the dipstick with your car engine heated up.

and

check and make sure your tires are properly inflated

and

look for red drips or puddles under your car that will tell you that you have a component failure and leak in your power steering system

and

check to make sure your drive belt is not past the time you are supposed to replace it. it may be slipping and not engaging the ps pump properly

It could be a number of things. More than likely it could be the power steering pump. That's typically what makes a car steer hard. You should also make sure you have power steering fluid.
