Question about 1999 Honda Accord
Tires checked for broken belt. New rotors surfaced (that took out wobble of SW when braking), alignment checked, tires balanced (with Big-O ground force machine.) HOnda dealer replaced - Steering rack, and PS pump. Now, steering wheel shutters/sluggish only when returning after a turn. Happens at slow speed turns, (like when NASCAR drivers are warming up tires weaving back and forth.) SW notches/wobbles back to center turing both right or left.

It could be a couple of things the tires could be out of balance and need rebalanced on the machine or it could of lost a weight from either the inside of rim or outside wherever your weights are located.

Here's the answer you were looking for. I hope it's not too late. There's a recall on the reservoir because it starves the pump and they slowly breakdown (whine). Take it in, cash in on the recall, get the new reservoir, demand a new pump. You paid good money for the Cadillac of minivans...you deserve it. Worked for me!

I recommend taking your vehicle to a shop (any shop) that use a Hunter tire balancer. These machines can detect all variables that affect ride quality by not only spinning the rim, but it uses a roller to inspect the tire itself for its "road force". They can also measure the rim while on the machine for run-out to detect for a bent rim. There can be times when a tire can be mounted to the wheel in a postion that promotes more vibration, but the hunter machines can check and show the correct location to minimize the feel to the driver. Here is a picture of the kind of balancer you want your vehicle serviced at. Please let me know how things work out.

sadly it sounds like the rack and pinion is going bad..rebuilt units are available ...you'll need a 4 wheel alignment after replacement. Get this fixed as it very dangerous and will only get worse

I would guess your two issues are separate. The squealing belt could be an adjustment problem or a wet or damaged belt. Belts can vary, how long they last. I have replaced them the next year on some cars and others could 3 or 4 years. The tire vibration could be related to the tire tread or some type of tire defect(a bubble in the side wall), may be an alignment problem. Check the steering components, tie-rods, ball joints, and wheel bearings.
