    v6, sorry for not clarifying.

  • Paul Sep 14, 2008

    Is there a diagram showing how to remove the a/c compressor, how many bolts and their location? Thanks!

  • Paul Sep 14, 2008

    It was what I thought..but so many bolts made it confusing which ones but after removing water pump and hoses it opened up space and was much more easier to see what had to be taken off. Such tight spaces to work in.

  • Paul Sep 14, 2008

    Got compressor out....installed by pass pulley...but belt was loose...put extra bushings had in kit behind pulley but belt still loose...by pass pulley seems smaller then pulley on compressor but not by much...maybe belt, which was recently put on when old belt snapped because of compressor, got stretched when installed as compressor, after freon charge, still was not working. so will see if new belt, or if a smaller one available, will do the trick. Otherwise, not sure what next step would be. Thanks!

    the compressor is located at the bottom part of the engine,

    trace the hoses of your air conditioning unit . where it ends is the compressor. i dont know if you can release the gas in your back yard. federal law prohibits the release of refrigerant in the atmosphere.

    remove the belt and loosen 4 bolts that hold the compressor.

    the dummy pulley is just being hold by two bolts. just use the front bolts that came out with the compressor.

    tnx again,

    drcool



  • francis rivero Sep 14, 2008

    thank you for the rating.

    glad to be of service to you.

  • francis rivero Sep 15, 2008

    what about the hood of the car, see if there is a belt diagram . it may change the loops if you use bypass pulley.

    tnx again,

Tried to replace my ac pully with a bypass pully removed all the bolts and I still can't get it budge to remove it.. I say for an hour trying but no luck help?


If you are installing a bypass pulley it will eliminate the A/C compressor thus eliminating your A/C. With that being said, you need to evacuate the system. (If there is anything in it), Remove the whole A/C compressor from the car and then install the bypass pulley where the compressor would mount to the engine. If you are trying to remove the pulley on the A/C compressor to replace it then you will need a special tool (A/C Clutch Pulley Puller) that is usually available at most auto parts store on the "Loan a Tool" programs.

How do you remove the power steering pump from a 2001 Chev Blazer with the 4.3 engine?


4.3L Engine
  1. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  2. Disconnect the feed and return hoses from the power steering pump, then drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.

    NOTE

    On models equipped with a remote fluid reservoir, disconnect and plug the hose(s) in order to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.

  3. Remove the drive belt from the pulley.
  4. Install a puller tool such as J-25034, or equivalent onto the power steering pump pulley. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut counterclockwise in order to press the drive pulley from the pump.

    NOTE

    When installing the puller tool onto the power steering pump pulley, be sure that the pilot bolt bottoms in the pump shaft by turning the head of the pilot bolt.

Installing the power steering pump pulley


  1. On most models, it may be necessary to unplug the electrical connection from the A/C compressor, unfasten the compressor mounting bolts and set the compressor to one side without disconnecting the lines.
  2. If equipped, unfasten the power steering filler tube bolt and remove the filler tube.
  3. Remove the rear brace retainers and the brace.
  4. Remove the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts and then remove the pump from the vehicle.

To install:

  1. Position the pump to the vehicle and secure using the front retaining bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
  2. If equipped, install the rear brace and tighten the retainers to 31 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
  3. If removed, install the A/C compressor.
  4. If removed, install the filler tube and its retainer. Tighten the retainer to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
Use a pulley installer such as J-25033 or equivalent to press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump. While holding the pilot bolt, turn the tool nut clockwise in order to press the drive pulley onto the pump. Check that the pulley is flush within 0.010 in. (0.25mm) of the shaft end.

NOTE

When positioning the installer tool onto the power steering pump pulley, be sure that the pilot bolt bottoms in the pump shaft by turning the head of the pilot bolt.


Properly install the drive belt and, if applicable, adjust the tension.

  1. NOTE
  1. Be sure to secure any hoses which may get in the way or rub other components.

  1. Remove the caps, then connect the feed and return hoses to the pump.
  2. Properly refill and bleed the power steering system.
  3. Test drive the vehicle.
