I have a 2001 Oldsmobile aroura and the steering wheel jerks when I make a left turn

Sounds like low fluid, possibly a bad power steering pump. If you replace the pump do yourself a favor and replace the Rack and Pinion as well and flush out the power steering lines.

Alternator charges at 14.4volts, replaced regulator, same result. boils battery.

The max charge voltage is usually around 14.5 volts, so 14.4 is not high.
Its possible the battery has a dead cell and that is causing the acid problem.
You might want to check with the dealer on what the max voltage is for your car.

Loss of power steering,battery light is on and check engine light is also on

Check for bad alternator or wiring to alternator. Also replace battery if its old, as it puts extra strain on alternator. Check also that the belt didnt come off, if this is the case, check all pulleys on motor to see if one seized up and needs replaced with belt.

I have a Audi a6 2001- tiptronic gear box. When I'm stopped to a traffic light and i try to leave a little bit faster(accelerate a little bit harder) suddenly all the power is gone, and is coming back...

Have the alternator tested. Sounds like the alternator is surging. Replace it, and possibly the battery (check date on battery) If more than a year old, I recommend replacing it. If alternator tests bad, it will need replaced.

Have the alternator checked,it should read at the battery 13.65 volts to 14.25 volts,with the ac on high blower,and the headlights on.If it does not read this range,replace it,have the battery checked,make sure it is good,have it load checked.Also tighten the alternator belt,or replace the tensioner if needed,and the belt.

Unfortunate all that is available for transmissions for the 1995 and 1996 aurora are the 1995 and 1996 year! The transmissions fron any other year are not compatible or interchangable on the 95-96 years!

2001 F350 Charging problems

actually the only thing i can recomend is to have the alternator replace again for warranty and before starting the truck charge the batteries very well with a baterie charger make sure to charge them individually because with a low batterie the alternator has to put a lot of load and might burnt again
specially with dual batterie.
