Yup: Doing donuts ruins several systems on your car.

a) Steering
b) Differential
c) Tires
d) Possible clutch

Makes me wonder why people do'em:huh?:

well check me for 2 of the 4
steering and tires
well i called Bad_mans mechanic and they said new pump and labour would cost me around 250 thats not bad cause buds quoted me 750 or 950 depending on model of my pump

i checked it and its past the 3rd dash
so im assuming its not low

although the humm noise is exactly what im getting
like steering is a bit tougher then ussual
but it still has power but with the humm noise u stated

Yo man! Listen up.......I didn't like their service.........they get the right shit and all.......But what they quote u with is soooooooooooooo off from what ur gonna pay.......my advice is to call em right away and say thats ur QUOTE.....now ask the guys who give u the parts.......then total it up.....

the man is sorta a dumbass ...so be careful.........

ok cool thanx for the advice

my belts are a bit worn and cracked but its not slipping from what i saw
it jus doesnt sound like the power steering fluid is being evenly dispersed throughout the system
cause i can here the pump working really hard thats what i think that humming sound it

maybe keep an eye on your p/s resivoir over a couple days you might have a small pin hole in one of the lines or something you could be losing pressure when you turn the wheel hence the toughness of the steering that would aslo mean the pump wouldn't get sufficient oil and thats why its strugling
