Default Strange Sound

I hear the sound Dddddddd!!!!
when the A/C and head lamp are turned on and when I stop at the traffic signal.

The sound is disappeared
when the A/C and head lamp is turned off. When I shift the transmission to 'N' even if when I stop at the traffic signal and when I am driving.. definitely no sound at all.

I don't know... at all...
Do I have to go to Speedy or Midas? I hate their disgusting smile whenever I get into the garage....
Help...

some cars just shudder when they have a lot of accesossories pulling on them. On our 88 nova if you have full AC on, and come to a light and idle, the car shakes up and down a little. If you up the RPMs just a little it'* fine...

Default Power Steering Pump

I found the sounds comes from the power steering pump...
It'* vibrating sound of power steering.
Do I have to change it or simply tighten the bolt?...

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Man thats a lot of miles, but you wouldn't get much for it. If you are really dumping a lot into it, it might be more cost effective to get a new car. You could get $1500-$2000 on yours if it'* got tha much miles and is in a fair-decent condition i believe. I got a 93 SE with 106,276 miles (at purchase on 6-23) for $3900. Although new insurance (adding a car to the family not replacing) and tax and license drove it up to almost $5k.

Default No way..

Well... I wake up everyday morning thinking "DAmn.. I should sell out today", but I can't.
It'* been ok for the last 8months without any problem. I think engine and the tranny are still good. It is gonna run more than 300K mils, I am sure...

Anyway..I don't want to spend any more money on the used car... I have to fix.
Thanks.

Default Problem Solved

I found the sounds is comming from the broken power steering pump mounting bolt. I got the new bolt at the junk yard, and eveything is fine. Better than when I bought.

Thanks.
