Leakage of power steering fluid from the area of the steering pump. Groaning noises and vibration of the steering column when the wheel is turned.
Power steering problem - fluid needs replaced weekly. Makes a humming sound when turning steering wheel. Steering is more difficult especially when not moving.
I am having the power steering pump problem on my 1995 as well. I see a reconditioned part online for 95 bucks. The window motor issue can be replaced by cleaning the contact and getting a new master switch. I found a new one on Alibaba express for $23. The dealer wanted ten times as much.
Power steering pump leak. You can get the repair kit to do it yourself and repair the leaky pump seals on Ebay for under $25 and also a new hose for about $60.
