Are the tires balanced? Did they use stick on weights, if so? If this holds true, see if there is a mark on the wheel, where a weight has flown off.
How about the front end alignment, and condition of the tires. Sometimes a belt slips in the tire. This is hard to see, but can be found by sliding your hand around the tire, and you will feel a bulge to one side. (Use caution, as there's no telling what may be stuck in your tire/s, and you can damage your hand or fingers. I realize how that sounds. One has to use finesse, when checking one's tires, with this method)

Can't provide pictures, but it's not hard to describe. You will need a normal set of metric sockets... a 13mm and a 17mm if I remember correctly. You will also need an adjustable wrench and screwdrivers. Don't forget lots of towels. The power steering pump is the lowest moving part on the engine. It's on the passenger side in front and to the left of the oil pan. It has two lines and a belt running two it.
Remove the rubber hose and drain the fluid ( about 1 qt ). Use your adjustable wrench and take the other line off. This is a banjo fitting with two copper gaskets (don't loose them). There are two bolts on the right of the pump. Loosen those, do not remove the bolts yet. There is another bolt on the left with a second, bigger nut... loosen the smaller nut and use your adjustable wrench to back the PS pump back to get the belt off. Now remove all three bolts and the pump should come off. Reassembly opposite of removal. Before starting the engine, fill the PS fluid tank with 1/2 qt to avoid air bubbles in the system. If the power steering doesn't work, you may need to let it sit several hours to let the bubbles in the fluid pop. Good luck.

Have you checked your sparkplug cables that run from the coils to the sparkplugs. Had a simular problem and it was the cables. Park in a garage, pop the bonnette and check if there is any loss of spark at the spark plugs.
Hope this helps.
