I had this exact car and I had all the same problems your talking about, The pump although I can't tell you for sure is on the left side of the engine as your looking at it. If it is whining it is because it is low on fluid, also when topping it off fill it to the full mark while it is running. If it is foamy turn the steering wheel all the way left and all the right a few time to help get rid of the air. You may have to let it sit a while to let the bubble escape, check and do this again, it could be a bad pump also. The overheating problem I had with mine was a bad temp sensor for the computer. It has two temp guages and the computer uses on to activate the fan as needed. I also had another problem with mine, on the front of the intake is a small plastic elbow for a heater hose and this goes bad. Had to replace mine. Wasn't hard, and the part was cheap. Hope this helps you!

SOURCE: power steering

the power steering pump is mounted on the front of the motor, the pump has a lid which you unscrew to add fluid. if you cant find the pump follow the serpentine belt until it goes around the pump (large Pulley) with about a four or so inch long neck. Make sure you buy the fluid made for your vehicle.

You have a leak somewhere.. If filling the pump does not stop the noise then the pump is going bad. Be sure the leak is at the pump before you change the pump or else the new pump might go bad as well from being low on fluid.

Its likely that filling the pump back up should stop the noise though unless you have run it a while its empty.

Steering hard to turn to the left like power steering is out but turns ok to the right. Checked power steering fluid. It is OK


bad steering problems,,your steering rack most likely,but,have you recently been stuck in ditch? when wheels are straight, look at front of car when parked. do wheels look funny? one going one way, and the other going the other? may be alignment. is it leaking any fluid on either side of the front of the car? drivers side? passenger side? if it's not out of alignment,,,wheels out of alignment,,the steering rack is the problem. it may be faulty. if not leaking fluid,it may still be bad. first i would make a visual test look under the vehicle while someone turned the steering wheel to right and left while car is in park,emergency brake on!! look at the steering arms while they turn the steering wheel from right to left. no fluid leaks? any resistance in turning the wheel? any leaks,if so,go to leak and repair with steering line replacement.no leaks? suspect a bad steering rack. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com i love to volunteer

Power steering fluid


You buy it at a car parts store. You put it into the reservoir on top of the power steering pump. If it keeps leaking out, causing a whining noise when you turn, then you have a leak which must be remedied. Hoses, the pump, and the steering mechanism can all leak with age and use.

I have put power steering fluid in my car (grand prix) twice in one week and i am still having problems turning the wheel whats wrong with my car?


From what you have described, there is a major leak in the power steering system. The leak will need to be identified and fixed and the operation of the power steering pump checked.

Currently the pump is pumping fluid out of the system under pressure (which is why you have to keep adding fluid) and is not providing the assistance to the steering that it was designed to do.
The power steering pump itself may now also be faulty and require replacement.

Have it checked out asap.

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.

My 1992 Pontiac Grand Am is leaking power steering fluid when I turn. What hose needs replaced?


It is most likely the pressure hose if the leak is below the pump. If you see the leak further back, it could be a hose or the rack and pinion assembly. A closer look should reveal the source. Wash it off and have someone assist you. The red fluid should show up better this way.

Power steering fluid leeking. I notice brown drops when i parked my car last night. this morning i couldnt turn my wheels. i check the power steering fluid nothing in there. So i added more fluid, it wont...


Hi,
Keep fluid in it so you can drive normally, though it leaks... I don't know how fast it's leaking.
You'll need to determine the leak source:
1. Leaking hose connection
2. Punctured/damaged Hose
3. Punctured/damaged power steering pump
etc.
Once identified, you can proceed with a plan for repair.
I hope this helps... Good luck!
