I have a 97 grand prix and the power steering is messed up it makes a grinding sound and today my daughter was driving it and there was smoke coming oiut from under the manifold and it smelled like rubber...


Hello,
Sounds to me like the bearings are worn out on the power steering pump and thats what you are hearing. Due to the fact all the other pulley are trying to spin at their normal rate and the bearings on the power steering pump are grinding, the Serpentine Belt is probably smoking too. Change the power steering pump (now) and inspect the Serpentine Belt real real good before you put it back on as it may very well need replaced now too.
Regards, Tony

What drives the oil pump on a '97 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.1L V6?


I don't think you can damage the oil pump gear when torquing the harmonic balancer. Oil Pump Removal & Installation 3.1L & 3.4L Engine To Remove:
  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the oil pump.
  3. Remove the drive shaft extension.

To Install:
  1. Install the oil pump.
  2. Install the drive shaft extension.
  3. Engage the drive shaft extension into the drive gear.
  4. Install the pump to the rear bearing cap. Tighten the bolt to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  5. Install the oil pan.
3.8L Engine NOTE: The oil pump on the 3.8L engine is serviced as part of the engine front cover.
  1. Remove the following:
    • Engine front cover.
    • Oil pump cover screws.
    • Oil pump cover.
    • Oil pump gear set.

1997 grand prix gtp. Tire pressure/abs light


Hello! This indicates a fault with the wheel speed sensor/ABS sensor. Any major auto parts retailer can pull the details of this code (which sensor) for free, which will help you identify if the wiring is loose or damaged or if the sensor will need to be replaced. If you need to replace the sensor - you will need to replace the entire wheel bearing assembly, as the sensor is internal.

Low oil pressure


You need to get a gauge hooked up to see what the actual pressure is. (a garage can do this if you can't get ahold of one.) This will tell you exactly what the oil pump is, or isn't doing. The gauge threads in where the sending unit goes.
