Just purge your power steering lines, make sure idling about 700RPM or so *automatic or manual*

Power steering issues


I'm going to agree with the rack conclusion. Keep in mind I can't see it for myself.
If you take the load off the front wheels, you should be able to turn the steering wheel without effort.
If the effort changes while turning the wheel, the only things affected would be the rack and the column.
If you notice it turns ok with the engine off but not with the engine running, it could be something with the pump or one of the lines, or still something with the rack.

I have to keep pumping the gas pedal to keep the engine running, it acts like it is starveing for fuel.then after it warms up a bit it will run at an idol. then when i step on the gas pedal it boggs down...


2 things to try-
first- change fuel filter(maybe this- is cheap)

second-more likely given what you said- partial melted catalytic converter-
when it warms up- passage expands enough to let it run a little

1986 accord when shifting, giving gas or less gas power shifts?


Jack car up. Hold the front wheel with both hands in the 3 and 9 poistion. Try and rock it towards you and away. If it is easy to move the wheel bearings need replaced.

Take it to an alignment garage and get the tracking/alignment sorted. Are the inner edges of the tires worn?

Push down on the wing hard to compress the suspension and release, if one side returns slowly, new shock or spring is needed. See if you can spot any cracked springs too.

SCREACHING WHEN PUSH ON THE GAS PEDAL


Slipping serpentine belt.
Have the belt tightened/replaced by a mechanic.

When you steer either direction, the power steering pump is harder to turn by the engine as its now pumping fluid hard to help you steer easy, but causing the belt to slip and you hear screaaaatch....
