Power steering pump--2001 hyundai elantra

I found it thanks the power steering pump--2001 hyundai elantra
My fluid is notleaking but we did siphon out some and added Lucas Power SteeringStop Leak it hasn't seemed to help any. The fluid before hand did notsmell burnt or seem discolored well maybe a bit dark but the car doeshave 102,000 miles on it. Otherwise the car is great. There seems tobe a little slack in both the power steering belt and the alternatorbelt is there a figure as to how much it too much slack? Oh and if Icould afford a different car I dont think I would be posting any questions.

If it's not a serpetine belt, max deflection of 3/4" on longest segment should be safe,  don't make alternator belt tight as a drum or you will burn out alternator bearings quickly.  If it has serpentine belt, the spring tensioner should keep the belt properly tensioned unless it's worn out.
It only needs to be tight enough to not slip, too loose will squeal and you will have to tighten,  to tight will kill alternator and you will spend $$.

2001 Elantra, are either of the 2 hoses coming from the power steering fluid reservoir a high pressure hose?


They are not high pressure hoses. They are fluid supply and return hoses. The fluid becomes pressurized once passed thru the pump. From there you'll notice the makeup of the hoses are significantly different; which is where the high pressure occurs.

Screech sound from the power steering when turning to right or left


It sounds like you're probably low on power steering fluid. I think the power steering fluid reservoir on the 2001 Elantra is on the passenger side of the engine compartment near the front. It has a removable cap. On the side of the reservoir there should be two lines. These are the minimum and maximum fill lines. Add fluid to bring the level up to somewhere in between these lines. Make sure you use an approved fluid for the Elantra. Your owners manual will probably list a power steering fluid type or you could go to an auto parts store and they could look up the correct fluid for you. I hope this helps you out.

Replace power steering pump


The procedure is as follows:--- 1) Locate the power steering pump on the driver's side of the motor, which is mounted in front of the engine, near the top.2) You will see a fill spout coming out of the pump with a cap on it that says "power steering fluid."
3) Remove the negative battery cable from the battery
4) Remove the cap from the power steering pump,allow the fluid to drain into the pan.
5) Loosen the bolts that hold the power steering pump to the engine block with a socket wrench. Once the pump is loose, remove the belt from the pulley on the power steering pump. Remove the pump from the engine compartment.
6) Insert new power steering pump in reverse.
7) Reattach the power steering hoses and verify they are secure. Fill the new power steering pump with fluid to the full line shown on the dipstick on the back of the cap for your power steering pump. Place the cap back on the power steering pump.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

MY 2001 Elantra was making a horrible screeching noise whenever i turned the car on and whenever i turned the steering wheel. i thought it was the power steering pump so i replaced the pump but i didnt...


Hi, it sounds more like you have a improperly tensioned drive belt. If you didn't get all the trapped air out of the power steering system this maybe the cause of your stiffer steering problem now. Try loosening the P/S belt all the way and starting the car if you still hear the noise you know its in one of the other drive belts. good luck

Which atf fluid for bmw 2001 330Ci power steering? I know it's crucial to use the exact one when adding to a transmission but does the standard Valvolene Mercon V or such work for topping up the power...


Dexron III ATF is what BMW called for in the power steering pump in these models. However, GM no longer makes a type-III ATF!

Nice thing about GM Dexron specifications is that any higher numbered fluid meets the requirements of previous, lower numbered fluids. What does this mean? Siphon out as much as the old junk as you can. Refill with Dexron III and if you cannot find that? A common on the shelf *upgraded* synthetic fluid can be found in Dexron VI that more than adequately surpasses previous Dex-III specifications. So use with confidence! Pour and forget...

Power steering pump seems to be dieing on my 2001 hyundai elantra


If it happens mainly when your car is cold, it is a common symptom known as "morning sickness" or "black rack disease". Check your power steering fluid to see if it has become discoloured. If so, try flushing the system and replace the fluid with an approved power steering fluid. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the rack and pinion steering unit.
