Hi, i have a 1994 jimmy gmc. having problems with the steering. it's hard to turn the wheel and as i turn the steering wheel it clicks. is it the power steering that is out?

2001 Chrysler Town & Country Van: When exiting the freeway at 70+ mph (daylight - dry concrete pavement, I realized I was going too fast to(comfortably) make the turn to the crossing road. I began braking hard (but not hard enough to kick in ABS cycling). I began to turn, still braking hard, and heard the tires squealing. Suddenly, it felt as though the power steering failed and it took all my strength to hold the steering wheel in the turn. A split second later, it felt like the power ste
It was the ABS system kicking in to try to keep the wheels from locking up. The squealing you heard was indeed the tires "sliding" across the surface in protest/resistance to your turning input thru the steering wheel. If you are not comfortable wit ... 1996 Chrysler Town & Country

I have a 1997 chevy silverado. When it sits for a day or two it starts real hard. It begins to turn over normal and then turns over real low and slow and then goes back to normal and finally starts. My opinion is that the starter is shot and is draining the battery because I notice on my volt guage that the alternator is working hard to get the battery back to normal operating range on the guage after starting.
Sounds like you may have faulty field coils within the starter. You can take it off and go to a starter/alternaor shop and have it check, they can ascertain if it is pulling excess amperage, and either make repairs or replacment unit. ... Chevrolet Silverado
