What is "y speed???" I can't understand that part...
You problem may have a bit to do with the posi unit (differential) Try doing a "burnout" then take a good look at the tracks (footprint) you made. If one is substantially longer than the other, posi plates on one side may have either failed or are sticking. Also, try adding some positive caster (2-3degrees) to both front wheels...this helps keep the car going in a straight line. If you drive it really hard, you also may want to look into changing from rubber stock suspension bushings to something a bit a harsher ride but keeps stuff from "wrapping up" under load.

My car is making an awful groaning grinding noise noise when it starts. The noise stops after it starts. Put my foot on the brake it starts again. put thr car in reverse no problem put it in,drive it...

It's your exhaust mounts or broken exhaust bolts. It does it in drive st idle n under load because the motor is sitting in rubber mounts made to dampen vibration. Therefore the motor tilts to the left in reverse pulling the exhaust away from your under carraige, and to the right in drive causing the loose exhaust to vibrate against something. Check your heat shields also. They fall apart n do the same noise. Piece of cake.

Our 2005 Jeep Liberty pulls right when accelerating and pulls left when we let up on the accelerator - hit the gas again and pulls right again. When maintaining speed It drives straight and true

I have the exact same problem with my 05 CRD, thought it was the motor or tranny mounts but both are in excellent condition. The problem started just after turning 100,000 mi. I don't have the answer, just wanted to let you know that you are not alone on this issue, hopefully someone will post a solution soon!

When i push gas pedal my stearing wheel sudenly pulling left and then when i release gas it is go back. and this car has 5 speed manual transmition.

Front wheel drive ? it would seem that the right wheel is not pulling it's weight for what ever reason. In order for this to be corrected you will have to have the right front wheel hub and transmission inspected. That is what is causing it. The left wheel is being forced to do all of the work.

79 vette i changed the power assisted steering hoses

Sounds like you blew out the rack.Double check that you installed the correct hoses and fluid on/in the vehicle. Bleed the unit by turning the steering wheel from stop to stop while the vehicle is running until there is no foaming or bubbles in the resovoir. If this
doesn't cure it then take it to a shop and have them pressure test the pump and rack . The tester can be pricey and the procedure is a little dangerous. If you have the tester by all means use the service manual and it will tell you the correct procedure for hooking up the tester and how to use it. But be careful and wear safety lenses and gloves.Power steering fluid is very hot and the pressures are high. If you determine that it is the rack replacing this is an adventure and your gonna need a wheel alignment after its done. I suggest you take it to a shop where the Tech's are ASE Certified. Good luck and keep me posted
