I'll guess the problem is in The Rack. That said, I also found this 2004 article. It really doesn't apply to your vehicle but it'* close.
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS.MW) -- A steering problem tied to injuries and accidents is forcing General Motors to recall 824,000 Buick, Oldsmobile, Chevrolet and Pontiac cars built in the late 1990s.
The models built between January 1996 and October 1997 with possible problems in the power-steering gear assembly are: the 1996-98 Buick Regal, 1996-97 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, 1997-98 Oldsmobile Cutlass, 1997-1998 Chevrolet Lumina, 1997-98 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, 1997-98 Chevrolet Malibu, 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue and 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix.
"Most reports indicate the driver experienced an intermittent loss of power steering assist when making left turns, usually at low speeds," GM said in a statement.
The Detroit-based company will notify owners in early February; dealers will fix or replace the affected parts at no charge, GM said.
