91 rs camaro i put a march perf. pully & bracket kit on my pre 1986, 350 and had to use my power steering pump off my 83 camaro but now that everything is hooked up the steering is still hard too turn. i tried turning the wheels all the way to l & r side and i think all the air is out of the system had to add alot of more fluid there is no leaks how can i figure out whats wrong pump worked fine in other car i did drive the car for a little bit with no power steering pump hooked up could this have damaged my steering box i am lost.
P.S its vary hard for me to drift around corners without power steering, every corner i hit im getting sideways HAHA THANKS

usually, the socket wrench would fit in the holes of the steering pulley. that is what they are for.
the steering pulley has three holes and you can adjust it so that the sockets could go through it and loosen one of the bolt that is holding the power steering pulley.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: steering is stiff

the problem could be contamination in ps fluid.i would flush the system and replace fluid first .if that does not solve the pronlem you most likely need power steering pump. the steerjng box is very unlikely.

i would check the power steering fluid level. if thats ok. then i would bet its your power steering pump. other possibilities although rare are :
if its power assisted rack and pinion, rack may need to be replaced if its damaged or corroded on the inside. or could be a pinched hose in the power steering hose routing. Wrong fluid in the power steering pump (causing the valves to swell shut) this happens when quick lube places put the wrong fluids in the wrong places. ( i went to one and they put the wrong fluid in my brakes and had to have my master cylinder replaced and brake system flushed... yes they denied it still cost me 350.00) also could be damaged suspension parts causing the resistance to your steering. hope this gives you some leads to find out whats up.

SOURCE: Steering wheel hard to turn when sitting still

it could be the steering gear on the column, the filter in the pump may also need to be cleaned.

sounds like the drive belt is loose or the pump is not developing enough pressure at low speed.

Check the tension of the belt that drives the PS pump, since it is working at higher revs, which points to this type of problem. The belt should be quite stiff and possible to push it maybe a half inch in the middle of the longest run. Any more means it is too slack.

Tensioning may involve loosening the pump mount bolts and swinging the pump away from the engine till the belt is firm, and tightening the bolts.

Overtightened belts can wear bearings out prematurely though, don't go nuts with the tension!

If the belt is ok, and you aren't losing fluid, the pump is on its way out, or the rack seals are bypassing fluid back to the pump too quickly.

I have a 91 camaro rs i put a starter in it it wont start. the guy i got it from made a new key at a chevy dealer i think why wont it do anything. ty john


If the key turns, that's all it needs to do. Check, with a test light, to see if you have power to the starter. It could be a dirty loose battery cable, or a faulty cable, or a fuseable link in the positie cable that is gone. It could be the ignition switch itself. Not the key and tumbler, the switch on the steering column. You'll have to do some checking.

this happened to me about 2 months ago there are 3 or 4 bolts behind the power steering pump and under the coil packs. there are 11 bolts in all that hold your water pump on some are hard to get to so you are most like likly gunna have to jack it up.
