    Ok, i have a 99 grand am gt, the power steering on it has been fucking up, this is what happends. If i am driving under 10 mph or so, it is hard as hell to turn, like the power steering is out, or it also seems as if when i hit the breaks and try to turn it does the same thing, the only way i can get the power steering to come back into play is when i accelerate, or hit the gas in anyway. I have already checked the power steering fluid, its fine. Also, i had the power steering pump replaced about 4 months ago. Any ideas?

    Yank out all the peripherals and loop your rack. Power steering is for women.

    Bah, nonsense. You aren't a man if you rely on power steering. Oh yeah, you also have to wrestle bears and chop down trees and stuff, too.

    nah, the GA doesnt have a vacuum assist power steering.

    if the belt was loose, the system would make all sorts of groaning sounds. seems more like the pump is going.

    <~~ mom had a 98 GA GT. fucking shitty car if you tell me.
