help a rookie driver please
hello everyone, maybe you guys can help me,
i bought a 1997 jeep wrangler sports softtop..
it has about 50k miles in it..
its Manual transmission.. and this was my first manual car.. so eventually i learned it and went oout on a roadtrip..
going up the hill.. going about 40 miles an hour on 5th gear and i can tell the car isnt going fast uphill, but i didnt know i was supose to down shift so i keep pressing the gas pedal really hard.. anyway next day.... when i accelerate... it makes really really loud noices that it didnt make before.. and sometimes if i dont hit the gas more, it starts to make that noice that the car is about to turn off but it doesnt...
what did i screw up here?
and please 2nd question is:
the steering on this car is rough, if i stay in parked and ttry to rotate the steerling wheel, its very very hard, and it makes a lot of noice, so i put steering fluid in but it wouldnt help.. what could that be?
