This removal is rather involved: use a turkey baster to suction out PS fluid,disconnect neg battery cable, remove serpentine belt, raise vehicle, support on jack stands, disconnect Oxygen sensor wiring harness from vehicle wiring harness, (access to this connection is thru the wiring harness grommet in the floor of the vehicle) remove catalytic converter from the exhaust manifold, remove exhaust system hangers/isolators from the bracket on the exhaust system, move the exhaust system as far as possible to the rear and left side of the vehicle, remove accessory drive splash shield, detach the ps supply hose coming from the fluid reservoir, from the fitting on the ps pump, plug the hose to prevent fluid leaking all over, remove ps pressure line from pump, plug this line also, remove ps return hose, plug line, remove nut attaching pump (@ rear of pump) to mounting bracket, loosen 3 bolts at front ps bracket, remove pump and bracket as an assembly, now remove 3 bolts and separate, reverse to install. Yes, it's a b-itch. good luck, countrycurt0

My van is having a hard time turning, would this be the power steering pump going out and if so how can I fix my 1998 Mercury villager


It could be or the steering rack . The power steering system uses a CII type power steering pump (3A674) and a power rack and pinion steering gear.

If you never replaced either of these parts before suggest you take to a ASE certified repair shop .
Pump Flow and Pressure Tests Before performing pump flow and pressure test, complete the following checks for conditions which could cause loss of power assist. Take corrective action if necessary.
  1. Check power steering oil reservoir (3A697) for proper fluid level.
  1. Check tires for correct air pressure.
  1. Check drive belt (8620) for proper tension.
  1. Check power steering pump (3A674) for correct model and vehicle application.
  1. Check for correct size power steering pump pulleys (3A733) on power steering pump and engine.
  1. Check entire system for damage. Replace parts, if necessary.
If the above items are correct, or have been corrected, and the loss of assist still exists, test power steering pump flow and pressure to determine whether the trouble is in the power steering pump , power rack and pinion steering gear or hoses.

How to remove my power steering pump


hope this one help http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/how-to/maintenance/3322636
This instructable is designed into four main parts. Here's the outline:

1) Gather the materials
-- Instructable step 1 - This includes tools, a new pump, fluids, etc.
2) Remove the leaking pump
-- Instructable step 2 - Drain the Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 3 - Remove accessories from Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 4 - Remove the pulley and bolts
-- Instructable step 5 - Remove power steering pump
3) Install the new pump
-- Instructable step 6 - Place the new power steering pump
-- Instructable step 7 - Press on the power steering pump pulley
-- Instructable step 8 - Align the pulley and attach the belts
-- Instructable step 9 - Flush and fill the power steering system
4) Cleanup
-- Instructable step 10 - Cleanup

You'll need some tools to complete this task. Before you start, gather the necessary equipment -- you will not be able to use the car once you start the replacement! It is always a good idea to have a friend on call, or a second car available.

Equipment list:

  • Power Steering pump (to replace defective pump)
  • Two (2) quarts power steering fluid or appropriate ATF (to flush and fill). More than 2 quarts if flushing the rack is desired.
  • Power Steering Pulley Puller set (to remove and attach the pulley). Some auto parts stores will loan the tool sets.
  • Socket set.
  • Open end wrench set (for use with puller set).
  • Leverage pipe or extension bar (in case the pulley is hardened on the spindle).
  • Drain pan (to drain & flush power steering system).
  • Wheel bearing grease for sliding pulley on the pump hub.
  • 2' wood 1x2 for assistance with aligning the pulleys. Any straight tool will work fine -- a level, metal rod, wood, whatever.

Don't see where to put power steering fluid at!


Usually located at the pump. With most cars there is a resavoure behind the pulley. Vans are famous for tucking things away so as a last resort follow the hose from your rack back to the pump and if there is another hose coming from the pump follow it to the resavoure

If you are talking about the power steering pump's pulley that is turned by the serpentine belt, you can't fix it. The only thing you can do is get a new power steering unit and install it.
