If the fittings aren't different sizes to help you out, it will be the fitting furthest from the frame, closest to the rad. or engine. all gm trucks are like this.

Which power steering line goes where

It shouldn't matter then. The pressure line will go from the pump to the gear box. And the return line will go from the box to the reservoir-that is, if the reservoir is separate from the pump. If reservoir and pump are together and you cannot tell how it fits, well, one is a pressure line and one is a return line, but if both the same, it should not matter. Sorry, I'm talking in circles.

How to remove power steering pump from 1993 chevy k1500

It is a pretty easy task but you will need a special tool for getting the pulley off of the pump. First remove your belt and make note of how it is routed before you remove it so you now how it goes back on. Then you need to remove the power steering pump pulley with a pulley remover tool. Then remove the oil lines and then unbolt it from the mounting bracket.

How can you flush the steering gear box after removing old power steering pump 98chevy C1500 silverado? I dont want any old fluid to get in the new power steering pump.

Leave the return line disconnected from the pump and run into a bucket. fill new pump and start engine have some one keep adding fluid until clean fluid is going into bucket. Caution make sure to secure hose to bucket or you will make a mess. Also turning the steering wheel about a half turn in each direction Will help it to flush out the gear box better.

You'll need to disconnect that line from the pump, (some metric wrenches will be needed) and disconnect the line at the steering gear box. It may help removing the A/C compressor and the power steering pump and bracket from the motor to get to the line where it attaches to the pump.

Is the power steering pump in a chevy 1/2 ton 5.7 l 1998 electronic?

vladkov your an idiot power steering systems run on hydraulic power. The pump is driven by the engine with forces fluid through the gear and assists your steering efforts. I have changed my steering gear twice and my pump. There's nothin electronic about it. Steering assist is electronic and thats a whole diifferent ball game, it only comes on newer vehicles. Changing a p/s pump on a 98 chev is pretty simple, you just need a puller to pull the pulley off so you can get at the mounting bolts. Take those and your 2 lines off (making sure to mark which one goes where) and that's pretty much it.

I have a 1994 chevy k1500 4x4 and need to change pitman arm

Take the bolts out that attach the steering box to the frame and pivot the box so you can fit the puller on.
Leave the steering shaft and power steering hoses attached.
Mark the new pitman arm and old one in the same place and mark the pitman shaft to keep the same position of the new pit man arm on the old shaft as the old pitman arm.

A very Fast leak Is Simple to Diagnose

  4. Have helper turn steering wheel to
  5. RIGHT or LEFT All the way till it stops and hold it there
  6. If you see it Pouring out from the Area suspected.
  7. That WILL be the HIGH PRESSURE Power searing hose.
