Unfortunately the GM database clame up blank on this model for any TSB on this problem!

well last night I put some Valvoline power steering fluid with stop leak and conditioner in it(very hard to get to the power steering resevoir in a 96 bonne!) and the noise went away instantly. I'm pretty sure I've got a leak because the fluid was low enough to not even register on the dipstick when cold. So I'm going to do some further investigating to determine where the leak is. For those of you have similar problems I suggest checking your fluid level and using the Valvoline fluid.
Thanks for everyone'* suggestions and research(Deathrat).

I just duck taped a big bar on my steering wheel so I could use it for leverage.
The windshield had to be taken out so I could get it all the way around but now I donít have to change steering fluid ever again. LOL

Man now I need to find a better toothpaste to get the bug stains off.

If you believe in free speech, fellow oldtimer, you gotta say "fling ****", not "fling stuff". Don't hold back! Drifter will get banned long before you!

it pretty much made the noise every time I turned the wheel but I think it did get louder the harder and further I turned it. The power steering fluid was low and since I've filled it the noise is completely gone. I would check your fluid first and hopefully that'* the only problem.
