2000 Oldsmobile Alero 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
When I first start my Alero the steering seems fine, it turns at slow speeds and all though the speed range. When the car warms up it steers VERY hard at low speeds. Downshifting and reving the engine slightly fixes the impossible steering event. No noise from the pump. I bought a belt but since it's a big deal to replace it I was wondering about the tensioner (it seems to have not a great tention on it, I cheched it against the tention on the long run of my wifes 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis and even on the long run it seems to hold a higher amount of tention [her belt looks worse than mine and I have to DEFINATELY replace it]).
