I have a '96 Fleetwood. While driving, it would feel like I hit an ice patch and the wheel would turn real easy for a second.

Then, it started humming from 0-5mph. The brake pedal also vibrates.

It was low on power steering fluid. That stopped the ide patch symptom, but that doesn't seem to have eliminated the noise of vibration.

Any ideas before I replace the power steering pump?

Also the FW has variable assist. Can I use an SS pump?

I have run into a situation similar to this and found out it was my harmonic balancer slipping. I noticed that my volts would drop a little at the same time. Just a thought. Run a chalk mark across the front of the pulley and drive for a couple days and see if it has slipped. I would only have to start and rev mine and it would move A LOT.

Free to check and cheaper than a power steering pump.

Cool, thanks I'll do that today.

Long term, anyone know if a Fbody pump would be a simple bolt on option for my Dbody?
