SOURCE: Power steering went out on

Have you checked your tie rods? Possibility one is either bent or broken, I've seen it before on TB's. That pulley shaft is a common problem to break, especially when cold out. PS pumps/pulley shafts and tie rods will snap if doing donuts in the snow with the steering wheel cranked, or off-roading. The PS is completely mechanical, no fuses or relays.

Hi I need to replace the serpentine belt on Hyundai tucson (2004) the problem is the air con pulls seems to have siezed, can I get a smaller belt as I don't really need air con in scotland. Cheers


my autodata belt book shows 18 hyundai belt set ups 1992 to2012 and only one that runs a special belt for the ac
for all the rest the ac pulley is required as the belt runs around it to drive power steering, alternator , water pump
test the ac pulley by removing the belt( after drawing a diagram of how it runs ) and trying to spin the pulley
if it is as you say have a mobile mechanic/ ac mechanic come and remove the pulley and replace the bearing ( about 1 1/2 hour and $20.00 for the bearing
if the pulley spins then disconnect the wire to the compressor so that the clutch is not engaged for the compressor

Do I have to remove the radiator in order to replace the power steering pump on my old Ford truck?


I would avoid that entire dilemma by just taking out the whole ps pump and replacing the pulley then, seems like a lot of work but it's worth it cuz the radiator removal is way more involved and more likely to cause problems with antifreeze leaks, also you probably only have to tilt the PS pump to get the pulley off so I would not disconnect the power steering hoses until I absolutely had to

Unless something has bent this should not be an issue. The only other time I have run into something like this is when the tension is not correct on the belt. If that doesn't have the spring loaded tension pulley you will find an adjustment on the alternator bracket. If it does have a spring loaded system then you need to replace that spring in the tension arm.

Remove the serpentine belt and pull on the power steering pump pulley (pull out towards the radiator). If the pulley pulls out of the pump than the shaft is broken. This is very common on GM vehicles.

The pump is very easy to replace and I can give you some further instructions if needed.

Want to know how to change out the serpentine belt step by step


You will need a 3/8 drive ratchet to put in square hole in belt tensioner. The tensioner is located just below power steering pump and a little to right. Check for belt orientation and diagram on front of engine bay. Push or pull ratchet to loosen tensioner. Remove belt. When installing new belt, flat side of belt rides on flat pulleys and the grooved part of belt rides on grooved pulleys. Install belt around all pulleys except power steering and tensioner pulleys, loose tensioner and install belt on last two pulleys.

Winding noise that appears to be coming from the serpentine drivebelt pulleys. most promenent from the power steering pulley.


With the Engine Running and belt rotating: Spray Belt Dressing (available at most auto parts / general merchandise stores) onto the Belt. Does the "whinning" noise go away? If so replace the Belt.
Turn off the Engine.
If the Belt Dressing does not stop the whinning: Check the Power Fluid Level. Add Power Steering Fluid - if necessary.
With the Engine Off: Remove the Serpentine Belt.
Click on the following free Link for the Belt Diagram and Directions on how to remove the Belt. Go to the left (counterclockwise) to relieve pressure off the Belt and remove the Belt.
http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2000/make/volvo/model/v40/2000_volvo_v40_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

After removing the Belt:
Go to the side and look at the alignment of all the Pulleys. All Pulleys should be aligned with each other. No Pulley should be canted/leaning.
Using your hand: turn the Power Steering Pump Pulley. The turning should be smooth and without effort. If there is any resistance or squeeking at anytime while turning, then the bearings in the Pump are going-out, and the Pump should be replaced.
While the Belt is off: check the remainder of the "free" Pulleys. Do Not turn the Crankshaft Pulley (you shouldn't be able to - by hand).

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

How do I change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick LeSabre, 3.8


My friend;
Try this;
  1. Check the belt pulley may have attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  2. Loose the belt pulley attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  3. Normally there are three bolts & or nuts u need to loose to allow u swivel the pulley side way.
  4. Once loose, swivel the pulley side way.
  5. Mostly, you don't have to remove the bolts & or nuts completely.
  6. You may need to remove other serpentine belt to reach the power steering belt.
  7. Removing those other belts work same as the power steering belts or other belts.

1 have a 1992 pontiac grand prix, 3.4L and i need to change out the power steering pump. since the pump is on top of the engine, it should be simple. How do i take off the serpentine belt?


There is a spring laded tensioner on the left (as you look at the belts) there should be a 9/16" boss that a wrench fits on, push or pull and it will release the tension to remove the belt.
