Aight so me and my friend were doing reverse doughnuts in a parking lot and all of the sudden my wheel is hard as hell to turn. Now i have a feeling that its my power steering pump but im not sure, theres no codes thrown, nor did i hear anything when it happened. And also i heard something that they had a recall on the steering pumps for the 99's?

i did that in my 2000 GA..lol
Top of my power steering pump cracked from stress
spewed lovely goo on my engine...lovely smell and smoke to boot

i went into my dealer and said it happened sitting in traffic....replaced under warranty

i just found out it wasnt my steering pump that was broken, they said it was some bar that cracked, not sure what, but its not that much to replace. so thats good

Well this happened to me doing reverse doughnuts in a snowy parking lot the other day (i have learned my lesson) and i got it fixed today for 275, was that an ok deal? Reguradless, i am very pleased with the way it turned out, getting this replaced tighened up my steering a great deal, i no longer have play in my steering wheel and the problem i had of difficulty driving striaght down a road is was also taken care of.
