Why would the oil and battery light come on and the steering become very stiff while driving a Plymouth Grand Voyager in a major storm?
water will splash on the belts [power steering, alternator, etc.], causing them to slip, as if greasy, not turning the pulleys. get new belts.
Sure you can but I would highly recommend against it if you want this engine to last. That is not the correct weight oil for your Plymouth. You should use SAE 5w30 weight. Your Plymouth will get very little lubrication at startup using this heavy oil. This will cause premature engine wear and hard starting in cold temperatures. You are not driving a race car you are driving a van.
What causes the battery light on a 1997 Grand Am to come on out of the blue while driving then after setting and being driven with the light on and restarted both ABS battery lights stayed on?

Sounds like youve broken a belt. Battery light comes on when the battery is no being charged. Power steering stops when the power steering pump is not being driven. I dont know about on a mini cooper s but a lot of cars have 1 belt driving both of these things. Chekc under your bonnet, you will likely have some broken bits of belt hanging around and a few bare wheel/pulley type things. Your car…
Why would the battery light blink intermittently and power steering be lost when the light was on when driving a 1995 Mercury Sable in heavy rain?
Power steering has made a significant impact on daily driving by assisting in swiveling wheels around their steering axes. Given that vehicles are increasingly heavy, use of front wheel drive, along with increase in tire diameter and width, steering would require major physical exertion if not for power steering.
Yes why not, you can recharge your truck PC by driving around. To recharge the PC first the truck battery should be charged. Driving recharges truck battery because every truck has a power generator inside it but you cannot recharge your truck battery if it is not working properly the acid level of the battery should be maintained properly. Better you check your battery before recharging battery.
Could be age or damage. It could be the gasket (a cheap repair if you can do it yourself) or maybe the pan itself is damaged somehow (such as hitting a large hole in the road or driving over something , like a curb). A leaking gasket on an loder vehicle, especially with a lot of miles is very common.
Given is the calculated distance as well as the driving travel time, which does not take into account driving conditions, traffic, changes in speed, etc. The distance between Chicago, Illinois and Plymouth, Massachusetts is about 1,018 miles. The resulting travel time is approximately 16 hours and 30 minutes.
