2002 Oldsmobile Alero No Power Steering

The car hasn't made any noise, and no indicator lights have come on at all. The problem is that the power steering isn't working. It has the right amount of fluid in it . As far as I can see there are no leaks. I was just wondering where I should start? If its the pump? Or if its the rack and pinion? Or if its something simple like vacuum problems or an dialectical issue?

2002 Oldsmobile Alero

Repairs for this problem = checked the fuse.
Question = the fog lights on the car won't come on. The fuse is good. there is no power to the switch as it doesn't light up when turned on. And the head light switch is in the proper position for them to work. I doubt the switch is bad we don't get to much fog, and the switch feels correct when pushed on.

Olds Alero Heater Fan and Defrost Vent Position Problem

I recently bought an 01 Oldsmobile Alero. The heater vent fan works, but only on the two highest settings, which is not a big problem. However, I just noticed that the knob that you turn to go from vent to vent/floor to defroster does not work. I can twist that knob, but the air only comes out of the vents, nothing comes out on the floor or the defrost settings.

What To Check Before Purchasing Oldsmobile Alero

Buying a Used Car ?

I have an opportunity to purchase an Olds Alero and it will be close to to $2250. Looks real good but with 100,000 miles is it a good idea. At 64yrs old and not a mechanic I''ll be driving not more than about 100 miles at a time. What questions should I ask the young high school grad who''s selling it to go into the marines.
