This is common for these. The power steering pump does not move a lot of fluid or have high pressure when at idle.

I need help can't keeps 98 gmc safari started all I did was run out of gas put more gas in and changed fuel filter still won't stay on ran great before what could it be


Could be the fuel pump as they use the fuel as a lubricant. When run dry this can cause wear to the impeller of the pump.
I would check the fuel pressure in the fuel rail.

My 98 gmc safari starts but won't stay started unless u keep putting gas into the throtal thing behind the airvent I already changed the fuel filter still doing the same thing help


It might be your fuel pump not getting fuel to throttle body. Disconnect fuel line to throttle housing get someone to turn car over and see if fuel is getting pumped up. If not the pump could be faulty or fuel filter blocked. Also check to see if you car has a fuel cut of reset button it could just need a reset.

If the power steering goes out will the brakes go out also? In other words is the brake line connected to the power steering? My vehicle was working then the second the steering went out the brakes went...


Some GM products did use a brake system that ran off the power steering pump. May want to phone a GM dealer to find if your Safari falls into that category. Ask for the service department. Sorry I could not be exact.
