Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am
Hi I was backing up and I ran over a rather large piece of hard snow/ice and I wasn't able to remove it so I continued to drive until it let loose. About two hours later and 15 miles I saw smoke and fluid on the ground. I didn't have any power steering. I am guessing that I broke a hose. The car is a 97 Pontiac Grand Am,6 cly,GT and it has the variable assistance power steering system along with the alternator cooling duct. Are these hoses easy to get too or will I need to take it to a garage to get repaired? I hope I didn't damage the pump I hear that that is expensive. Thank you Sherry
The hoses for your power steering should be on the right of the engine, as to the ease of access, the lines are right there, however they're a little tough to reach without the proper tools and a lift.
