Question about 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 $$.
