(Feel free to move post)
So I decided to be young and dumb and tried to do a low speed J-turn, With little throttle and some steering it worked fine, even produced a little tire smoke
Cool , feeling as if I got away with something I exited the parking lot, for a moment it felt like the power steering quit but It was back momentarily...within a week I felt like being dumb again but instead of a J turn I did a donut...

I did about two of em and took off...NO power steering...so, I stopped and looked around, belt was on and plenty of fluid...but it felt like there was slop in the pulley...got er home and removed the belt and pulled on said pulley...and it came clean off! The shaft and all came right out and it looked like the shaft had sheared off?! Sad Confused...So went down to Napa and got myself a $150 power steering pump and now everything is back to normal...Anybody else heard of this?

When I first got my Impala, I drifted in the Junior High parking lot. As I was driving on the highway the car made alot of noise and heard and felt a THUMP THUMP THUMP. Flat spotted the tires. Had to go to wally world and get new ones. Haven't done it since.
