I have a 1997 pontiac grand prix gtp supercharged coupe my power steering hose popped off and i put it back on do i need a new one or is the pump gone i need help cuz its hard to turn


if you put the hose back on and put new fluid in it and it it is still hard to turn which means you pump prob went bad , make sure you have enough fluid in it first, you could have blown you rack and pinion but not likely

My 1998 Pontiac Grand prix turns right with no problem, however turning left is as if there is no power steering what so ever, the fluid was low and I need to know what has to be done.


Hello, There are some products which as additives will renew the seals if they are dry. You need someone to look under your car to try to determine where the leak is coming from.
There is a part called a "Rack and Pinion" which has the moving pistons that push the front wheels to turn. Sometimes the seals on the ends of this device wear out. Or you could just have a loose clamp on the power steering hose. Keep monitoring your fluid level as the pump will fail without adequate fluid.

This would be a part that a front-end alignment shop would inspect to do a front-end alignment.

My uncle replaced the power steering pump in my 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix but I am still having a whining noise. What is the proper way to bleed the pump of air for a Grand Prix?


the power steering pump, you need to bleed out the rack, this is done by filling the power steering system then turning the wheel from left to right in quick repitions.

My 1997 pontiac Grand prix power sterring is gone and hard to turn i think it might be the pump or sterring whell fluid but cant find it help me please


You might want to check the power steering fluid. The resevoir is on the passenger side toward the passenger seat it is kind of hard to find. But i have a '97 Grand Prix and i noticed that whenever i would turn sharp while going pretty fast it would make a grinding noise and i could feel my steering wheel pulling me. But the thing is the power steering never whinned or anything. So i checked it and there was absolutely none in there. So check the fluids first.

Problem with steering wheel


Stay in the Car! LOL you have a problem with your power steering system. 1st Check your fluid level. 2nd check the belt. If you discover everything is ok, replace the power steering pump. That should fix it, however, if you still experience a problem, it will be in your rack and pinion. If you replace the rack and pinion you would want to change the pump anyway so no harm done. Good luck

This is definitely a power steering problem. I had this same problem about a year ago. I had to get my Power Steering Rack replaced, this fixed the noise and problem. You can add power steering fluid as a temporary fix, but your problem will not permanently go away. You are probably leaking fluid out of your steering rack.

The sound that you are hearing probably happens more often when you are acclerating around a turn, right?? Does it sound like a little foreign car in reverse?? Also, the wheel may be a little stiff when first starting out.
