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!

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.

Where do i put power steering fluid on a 2007 pontiac grand prix


Follow the serpentine belt on the front of the engine. One of the accessories powered by the belt will be the power steering pump, It will have a twist off cap with a dipstick or a sight window to show the power steering fluid level. Don't overfill the reservoir.

I have a 97 grand prix and the power steering is messed up it makes a grinding sound and today my daughter was driving it and there was smoke coming oiut from under the manifold and it smelled like rubber...


Hello,
Sounds to me like the bearings are worn out on the power steering pump and thats what you are hearing. Due to the fact all the other pulley are trying to spin at their normal rate and the bearings on the power steering pump are grinding, the Serpentine Belt is probably smoking too. Change the power steering pump (now) and inspect the Serpentine Belt real real good before you put it back on as it may very well need replaced now too.
Regards, Tony

I need to repair the power steering hose on a 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix.


Very rarely can you repair a power steering hose, in most cases other than tightening, replacement is necessary . They are high pressure and are specially made for your particular car (custom fit)

These vehicles are known to have power steering issues. They use up fluid and at about a 100k or so the pulley itself can "sheer" right off. I would check your power steering fluid level and go from there.
Thank you,

Power steering not working tried adding power steering fluid didn't work.


The Pontiac power steering pump run off a shaft driven and not belt driven. This means that when the steering system is stressed instead of the belt slipping it puts a lot of stress on that shaft and could cause that to break. If nothing seems to effect the power steering I would have to guess that this is what happened and the power steering pump will have to be replaced.
