96 cadillac seville cuts off while driving mostly after refueling

Car cuts off while driving , steering wheel becomes difficult to turn it happens at radom but more often after putting gas in car it'll cut off while driving consistently until i burn about 1/8 th tank of fuel before settling down/driving w/out cutting off (except on rare occassions) also, car cranks for excessive amt of time before starting in general but i have noticed that it starts up right away after refueling fuel pump has been changed, fuel filter (care burns less fuel in general but still cuts off while driving) sometimes feels like the car accelerates on its own while driving at other times it feels like there is a drag/ fuel is sluggish when i press gas pedal

Probably not without driving it.
A vibration is usually caused by something that turns, such as the tires-wheels or axles.
But it could also be a cylinder miss or something in the engine.

If the vibration is in the steering wheel a tire out of balance or a separating tread could be the problem. Have it checked at a tire shop or move the front tires to the back to see if it goes away.

Just replaced rack and pinion and pump, steering is fine for a short drive and then becomes stiff. Ideas?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
You may have air in the fluid line that's why it goes stiff. As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you turn the steering wheel left and right on max for the fluid to circulate properly. You may need to add up fluid while you perform the procedure. I believe you'll be good after.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

the most likey cause for the leak is a leaking a/c compressor or a leaking evap core located inside the dash board on the passenger side..... the compressor will automatically shut off when the a/c system charge becomes to low since low pressure can damage the system if it is on with a low charge
