No it is a simple job, however you do need a special tool to remove the pump pulley to get at the bolts that hold the pump on.

I don't think my 92 isuzu pick up has power steering..so can I install 1..i see the pumps online just want 2 know if it can b done


You will need the pump, hoses, and steering gear, and the easiest way to get the proper equipment is in a junkyard off of another 88-96 Isuzu Pickup (I think that's the last year of the model in the U.S.) because then you can get the brackets that your truck is probably missing and not need to fabricate anything. It is possible, but it will probably be more work than it seems. Check the link for a description of some of the issues with doing the same swap on 1st gen Isuzu Pickups (81-87 P'ups). 82 pup adding power steering IsuzuPup com

How do I replace a power steering gear box in 1971 chevy c10


In general terms, its fairly easy.
You need to disconnect the pitman arm, the steering coupler to the column, the ps hoses, and unbolt it from the frame.
The tricky part is getting the steering wheel and pitman arm aligned so the steering wheel is centered when you put it back together.
Some are notched so you have to put it back one way, some are not.

If you had advance do the pump.how would they or you
as a mechanic, leave the shop with no fix for the problem

How do i change my power steering fluid


Hi B, There are basically two places that can make a noise from the power steering; one is a loose belt which will produce a loud screeching sound which will become more intense when the steering wheel is turned. That one means that the belt has stretched and should be replaced or re-tightened. The second type of noise will be from the pump and will mean a replacement or at the very least a repair job (if the repair kit is available). Replacing the fluid is not a great problem. Locate the reservoir and the low pressure pipe which returns the fluid into it It will came from the steering assembly. (a rubber pipe attached with hose clips. The high pressure feed pipe will connect to the steering pump).Get a large container, which must be at least four times the capacity of the replacement fluid, You will probably need in the region of seven to ten pints, maybe more.. Join an extension hose to the return pipe and run that into the catchment container. Be prepared with the replacement fluid and ask a friend to start the engine. As the engine starts, begin filling and keep filling. The used ATF will run into the catchment container and when it becomes clean cut the engine. Reconnect the hose to the reservoir and check that there are no leakages. Regards John

Need to replace hoses on powre steering pump Can I do it myself?


yes the low pressure is a matter of hose clamps, the high pressure will have to be purchased or made. The just screw on, all you have to do is drain the power steering and remove old line and replace them with the new. Fill back up the power steering and check to make sure nothing is leaking. hope this helps Tim

Vacuum switch on power steering pump?!?!? What does it do??


Your mechanics are either stupid or are playing stupid. Its to raise the idle speed when there is high power steering pressure. Like when you turn the steering wheel, the pressure goes up, and it raises the engine idle speed. Find one in a junkyard, They have U-Pull IT yards around here, you can get one cheap.

2007 S40 WONT START ''POWER STEERING FAILURE'' CAME ON


The power steering is actually ELECTRIC steering on this car Most common and basically only failure is 2 30 amp fuses in under hood fuse block Only other thing is mechanical and would set a trouble code and sat power steering on your dash. FYI. Jump Starting your car from the +- Terminals found near the FUSE box under the hood, will Blow the Fuses for the Power Steering. Always Jump start your car from the Battery Terminals in the Trunk

Locate the power steering pump and hoses on your vehicle. The power steering pump is located at the front of your engine, near the top of the motor. It will have a black fill cap on it that is labeled "power steering fluid."
1)Clean the outside of the pressurized power steering pump hoses and the power steering pump with clean shop rags to remove any oil deposits. Check the exterior of the lines to identify any signs of steering fluid leakage.
2)Start the motor and turn your steering wheel back and forth several times to cause the pressure in the steering pump to build up. Turn the engine off and recheck the hoses for fluid leaks. Examine the power steering pump for any signs of cracks or damage. If your power steering pump is damaged you need to replace it with a new pump by removing the bolts that hold the pump onto the bracket, taking the pump belt off the pulley and disconnecting the hoses. Replace the power steering pump by reattaching the hoses with a screw clamp and attaching the pump to the bracket. Place the belt around the pump pulley and apply pressure by pulling back on the pump and tightening the belt by using a socket wrench to tighten the bolt on the bracket. You can find a power steering pump for your vehicle at your local automotive.
3)Check the fittings and clamps for any signs of wear or leakage and tighten any loose clamps with a screwdriver. Inspect the hose leading from the power steering pump back into the firewall that leads to the steering wheel. If you find that a leak has developed in the power steering hose that leads to the steering column, consult a mechanic or take your vehicle to a local service center and have an inspection done.
4)Remove damaged power steering hoses by taking the cap off of the power steering pump and then unscrewing the clamp on the hose. Recover draining power steering fluid by placing a clean container below the hose or power steering pump when you loosen the hoses and allow the fluid to drain into the container.
5)Repair power steering hoses where the damaged area is close to the end of the hose by trimming off the affected area with a utility or sharp knife and reattaching the hose with a screw clamp by tightening the clamp with a screwdriver. For damage that is in the middle of the hose or near a section that can't be repaired, replace the hose with a power steering hose that can be purchased from any automotive supply store in your area or online at an automotive supply website, such as the ones listed below in the resources section, and connect the new hose to the power steering pump with a screw clamp.
6)Fill the power steering pump to the proper level with power steering fluid and replace the cap. Start the vehicle motor to test the system. Once you have verified that the power steering system is working properly, shut off the engine.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
