not sure, but anyhow, NICE!!
i hope the donuts were worth it!!

is it expensive to fix?

sounds expensive to me.

03-23-2003, 01:19 PM
sad to hear. I don't know how much tho.*sad*

This happens quite often, the powersteering fails when you do really agressive donuts. I have no idea why, but it's really expensive to fix.

that sucks
but anything LIKE THAT ever happened to one of you guys?

Did you check your belts? It might just be your powersteering belt that broke.. easy fix.

03-23-2003, 11:52 PM
if the belt broke would the car even steer at all?

03-23-2003, 11:52 PM
did u see your levels ? i might be the steering pump thats not sending oil or suplying it around the system?

yea but your car is worth it.. cause you got a good deal..
im still ending up paying more

03-24-2003, 02:35 AM
i guess ill just check it tomorrow with a mechanic... :(

just remove the power steering if it's really broken and pricy to be fixed. U'll know how good it feels to drive without power steering

03-24-2003, 03:04 AM
lol you think i know how man? i dont know too much (if at all) about mechanical stuff

03-24-2003, 10:52 AM
yea the car will still steer with out a belt it would be tough though like you described there would be no power

sorry to hear man no video either??

03-24-2003, 08:07 PM
