      Quick question since you didn't mention this. But were the new tires properly balanced? Even though they are new they still need weights on the wheel to counter balance them.

      properly not really sure but they are balanced. I noticed this tonight that the shaking is more prevalent when the van is accelerating and smooths out when i let of the gas.

      It could be a bad or loose engine/transmission mount or the harmonic balancer on your engine...

      Opps, wrong vehicle I have it listed under.

      It should be listed for the Pontiac Grand Am 1999, 4 cyl. twin cam.

      Need more information - which power steering hose are you using the clamp on? If the return hose - this is low pressure and a standard hose clamp should work OK.

      I dont believe it is the return hose. It seems to pressure up and blow off after I start car and let it run for a while.

      Use a european style screw clamp. Use those three words exactly. For example >> https://www.google.com/search

    Steering the car is hard
    i drove about 20 miles after getting my car out of the shop and the car got hard to turn i thought the car had shut off on e but when i turned the wheel i heard a squeeling noise i checked the fluids and everything is fine
     
    • Jimm

      If the squeeling noise is the power steering pump drive belt on the pump pulley - then this may indicate the steering pump is faulty / siezed perhaps due to lack of fluid or simply age / wear / mileage.

      Check with the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the power steering pump from around $37.00 (minus the core exchange) for your vehicle.

      Not sure why vehicle was in shop, may just need a new pulley belt tightened properly.

    I would like to change the existing power steering pump as its oil seal is worn out and leaking the fluid. Could you
    please tell me the procedure as I would like to perform the job myself. I am a handy person.

      Check the Auto MD website for the 'How-To-Guide' feature and specific steps to remove and replace the power steering pump. You may also try the website; www.autozone.com for additional repair steps.
      Check the many on-line parts sources;such as www.RockAuto.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, or www.autopartsfair.com. For example, they (RockAuto) list the power steering pump from around $36.00 (with reservoir) minus the core exchange cost.
      Keep in mind - it's also a good idea to replace power steering hoses - both the pressure and return - to maintain the clean and functioning steering system when replacing the steering pump. The hoses list for around; $14.00 (pressure hose) and around $11.00 for the return hose - for your vehicle - same source RockAuto or any of these other sources. You should also go ahead and replace the drive belt - if worn or in poor shape - same reason.

      The only thing that,horn,airbag and cruise control have in common is the spiral cable also called clock spring.It the clock spring goes bad(has a open circuit)may cause all the above issues.Before u attempt any repairs u need to stop by at a shop to have your airbag system scanned for codes.That would be a accurate diagnosis before replacing any parts.

      if there inner and other bearinggs u should check or grease probbally once a year if concealed bearing such as hub they should last approx more than u will think.

    Why is there a weird noise when I make a right hand turn?
    It sounds like something is going to break off.

    Tire wear on outer one inch of tread on front wheels. Is this curable by adjustments or is it a design flaw?
    The outer one inch of tread wears off from the front wheels very fast. I have noted the same wear on many Chrysler mini-vans. I have 14" wheels(205/75r14)

      It's 15 years old and showing it's age . But should be fine . Might be time for a few new parts and an alignment .
