This means that your serpentine belt has failed, more than likely it has fallen off completely, since the serp belt runs all the accesories, ie power steering alt, and water pump.Don't forget to check your belt tensioner and all your pulleys also so this doesn't happen again.I hope Icould help!!!

Check your drive belts, volt mean alternator not charging, and by what your saying it's not a bad alternator but a broken or missing belts.

97 chevy lumina.. I had issues with the car turning by itself when it hit a bump and a loose steering wheel. I took it to a mechanic who told me the front inner & outer tie rods need to be replaced.got it...


I would maybe have someone take a look at the stabilizer bar and ball joints. Unless you request them to look at the whole steering assembly, meaning torsion bars, etc. they might not find the issue. on another note maybe your power steering pump could be taking a dump on you, was it hard to turn?

Your alternator is not charging your battery. I could be the belt, regulator or alternator. You need to fix this as it will strand you when the battery is drained of power.

Power steering pump


check the cap and make sure all the hoses are put on nice and tight. start the car and watch the pump, and look at the hoses as well. You might have to have some one turn the wheel back and forth to get the pump pushing the fluid thrue the system.
