Default Concerns....

My Olds Ninety Eight Regency Elite has 197,500. Sometimes when turning the wheel, it makes a sound like a grinding in the front end Often times when the wheel is turned all the way it stalls. Also, it has a miss in it when accelerating, but I think a tune up will take care of that. I just replaced the AC compressor. I am concerned that with as many miles as my car has, the trans might start to give me some trouble. Overall the car is in great shape.

That'* a tough one to diagnose without being there. Possibly your power steering rack is going bad. What condition is your power steering fluid in?
