We just bought a (used) '99 Grand Prix GTP 4 door. It is an AWESOME car. I have a problem though; if I get on the gas in a lower speed turn (<30 mph) then the remainder of the time the car is on, the power steering system makes a very loud moan when I turn the wheel at a low speed (accelerating or not). After some lame research on some random forums, the best idea I can come up with is that it's the power steering pump? I dont know though, I am not too familiar with that noise...

My '04 had it's steering box replaced at 35K and regreased at 97K. Considering how flawless the rest of the car has been, this small item has been a non-issue in my book!

I am researching issues with the noises my 2004 Grand Prix is making when I turn. It is almost like a slight vibration and makes an awful noise. My tires are not the problem, however I suspect it has something to do with my power steering and now reading the issues on this site, I think I'm right. Any ideas as to what can be done? Has anyone had this problem fixed? What was the outcome?

I am having a similar problem with my 04 Grand Prix. It whines when I turn. It's worse the colder it is outside. Sometimes it makes a horrible clattering noise when I first start it. I think it's related to the power steering, too but I don't know exactly what. I can't seem to locate the power steering pump or the fluid so I can check the level of power steering fluid.

To make it as easy as possible, just take it to the dealer. They are aware and it isn't an expensive fix. I'm now at 110K miles and the car just keeps getting sweeter.

My 1999 GT is whining when I turn too. The first time I noticed it was on a day back in February when the temperatures were in the single digits. It would whine when I took a corner fast and then whine for a while after that.
It was kind of cold yesterday morning, and it did it again, and continued to do it throughout the day.
Has anyone discovered what exactly the problem is? It went to the dealer today, but it didn't whine for them, so they didn't have any answers.

does anybody know the answer to this? Wheels turn great to the right but hard to the left.

I have a 2004 Grand Prix, and was wondering,how do i get the steering wheel cover off, so i can get the stereo control covers off. I didn't notice any screws anywhere, just that it won't come off. If you guys know of how to get them off, please let me know.
