Absolutely! If the belt has any play, it'll squeal. when you gas it. After you change the water pump, be sure to properly tension your belt. If the power steering pump has play, your bearing in the pump could be failing. When you say it has play, is it how it's mounted, or is the shaft in the pump wiggling?

Ugh! That sucks man. It that the same reason you're changing the water pump? If so, the belt may have been too tight.

For me, installed my 3G alternator upgrade finally and chased some wiring under the dash. Guy before me had a viper alarm system on the car that left a birds nest under the dash and had taps into all kinds of factory wiring. Next week I'm going to try and delete the A/C which no longer holds coolant and the smog pump.

My GT has an aftermarket alarm that sometimes misbehaves. I'd love to yank it out, but then would have the same problem as you with wiring. I feel your pain!

Yeah, this one would automatically lock the doors after you start it, almost locked myself out several times. I think it was also a source of constant draw on the battery.... With the 3G alternator upgrade it should be good anyway, but it was a back job at best. They even spliced the ignition wire with an extension, put a little jumper box on it and inserted a jump wire to comets the circuit. Just crazy. Maybe that was there way of preventing theft, lol! Pull the jumper wire and take it with you.... Hahaha! Things people do make no sense! The only thing I have to chase it the electric locks stopped working. So I have to see where they spliced the wire and reconnect.

Exactly! I'm still chasing wires that just go to nothing or taking out wires from some hack job radio/sub install.

I totally get that. Mine just randomly goes off for no reason. Lights and horn, middle of the night, in my garage. Gotta love that modern technology!

Hey, I'm all for whatever makes my girl happy! Unfortunately, it'd mean my wife would get to drive a new Roush or Shelby. In this family, we upgrade. Fair is fair.
