We have a 2003 Chevy Impala, which we love and has been very good to us. However, we have noticed when we accelarate we hear a whinning noise. We took it to the dealer and they said, we need a new Power Steering Pump. I am questioning this because there is no leak or any kind and the steering seems fine. It does whine when we slow down to turn, but also when we just accelarate. What I am wondering is, do we really need a new Power Steering Pump?

I have a 2008 Chevy impala. I accidentally turned the key off before putting the car in park. Now the key won't turn all the way to the off position. I had to take apart underneath the steering wheel so that I could get at the manual release on the ignition module where you insert the key. I can depress the plunger, turn the ignition off then pull the key out. The problem is that I have to do this every time to get the key out. I know I caused this when I turned the car off without it in park. Is there a reasonable fix for this?

For several months my car has had a fairly rough vibration while turning right, and only while accelerating. (only felt on highway on-ramps, really) Often my ABS/Traction control lights come on, seemingly out of nowhere.
Last night I was driving home on the highway, and I noticed an unusual vibration while going straight. As I was pulling into my parking lot it started making a loud clunking noise. This loud noise persisted both while going straight and turning, but it seemed to fade when I let off the accelerator. I haven't driven it any faster than 10-15 mph since hearing this.
Initially I was suspecting the CV axle, but today I jacked up the car and it feels like the bearing has a lot of play.


My 2002 Impala has 50,000 miles, when should the serpentine bellt be replaced???

When I turn I hear and feel a loud pop/clunk noise coming from the floor panel/steering gear. I have replaced the follwing: power steering pump, rack & pining, one strut bearing, one ball joint, inner tie rods and I'm steel hearing the pop noise. I even started to feel it more after I replace the rack and pinion.

I'm thinking on replacing the other strut bearing, both outter tie rods and last will be to drop the subframe and check it for cracks.

Any help will be appreciated.
