Lost the power steering in 2001 GTP

    It does not whine. Belt is fine. haven't gotten to the hose as of yet. It just fights me anytime i turn. There is still fluid in the reservoir but it isn't full. If the hose was bad, wouldn't there be no fluid at all?

Check ball joints, and all tie rod ends in entire steering linkage. Sounds like one of them is bound up.

A whining sound up near passenger side front of car, bad snow storm, car got stuck...started this whining just a couple of days later. worried it could be transmission...any ideas?


a whining under the hood is usually a belt, or pump. most of the time it is the power steering pump. make sure that the power steering reservoir is full and the belts are not damaged or dry rotting.

My power steering quit working after being stuck in a snow drift, what could the problem be?


I would suspect that the power steering belt is off the power steering pump because of the snow packed up in the engine compartment.check all the belts and replace as needed.

I got stuck in the snow now no power steering


The power steering pump may be faulty,If the level is full i would suggest replacing the pump to see if it repairs your problem.You'll have borrow a power steering pulley remover to remove the pulley.

My 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has a power steering leak but seems to work well. my mechanic wants to replace the whole rack and pinion, but that seems extensive for a leak. any suggestions?


Anytime a power steering compononent is leaking it requires replacement. whether or not you choose to replace it is up to you. if you lose all power steering fluid you will lose your power assist however mechanical steering ability is still maintained.

2006 Chevy Trailblazer LS, dashboard lights, need a key of warning lights, one is a wrench with a car next to it and a squiggly line underneath, the other one looks like a car skidding in a triangle.


Change Engine Oil Light = wrench with a car next to it
StabiliTrak® Service Light =
car skidding in a triangle.
This light will come on if a problem is detected in the StabiliTrak® system

Sounds like you may have a problem with the power steering pump. Notorious for these pumps shaft to break, causing "armstrong" power steering. As far as the 4wd low problem, ick.
