SOURCE: 1987 Chevy G20 van replace power steering pump

Does your van have the serpentine belt? If so maybe I can help, I replaced the Power steering pump on my 90 G20 a couple of weeks ago. The trick is that you need to pull the pump pulley which is pressed on to access the mounting bolts which attach the pump to the engine. Harbor Freight tools sells a great tool designed for this job for $20.00. Once you have the correct tools, remove the serpentine drive belt. You may also need to remove the fan shroud. the pump shaft looks like it has an allen socket in the center, but this is for use in the manufacturing process, and will not come out. Place the puller tool on the pulley following tthe instruction that come with the tool, and remove the pulley. loosen, but do not remove the nut on the high pressure hose connection. use a pair of **** pliers to cut and remove the crimp clamp on the low pressure hose. If your pump has the remote reservour loosen the clamp on the reservour hose also. Remove the three mounting bolts, place a large pan under the pump to catch drips, and remove the prevously loosened hoses. there will be fluid leaking all over and the pump should come free, There are two types of replacement pump sold. With and without reservour. This reservour is a metal cover that fits over the back of the pump, and should not be confused with the reomte revervour found on some newer models which is next to the battery. This reservour is held in place be two throught the pump bolts which are removed at the back of the pump. If your new pump has a reservour you will probably still need to remove these bolts and put them in the replacement pump as most are shiped without these bolts. If you replacement pump comes without a reservour pull the bolts, the reservour should pull off of the old pump and slide onto the new one. check the o rings and replace the through the pump bolts. Installation is the reverse of removal execpt that 1/2" hose clamps replace the crimp clamps on the low pressure hose, and the puller tool is set up differently to replace the pulley. Finally if you don't flush contaminants out of the system your repair will last maybe a week. www.cardone.com has a great article about power steering flushing, read it before you start Good luck.

SOURCE: install fuel pump on 1996 chevy 1500

Is the fuel pump really bad?

Our son's erstwhile Ford something had a shock sensitive switch that when tripped by a big pothole, shut the (electric) fuel pump off and had to be reset before it would function again.

You're going to have to bleed the system alot on those trucks. Just remove the return line and have an assistant turn the steering wheel back and forth just enough to engage the pump and filling the resevour while doing this. Keep bleeding until you have a good flow of P/S fluid out with no air bubbles. This can take a while.

SOURCE: removing power steering pump

To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:

  1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
  2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
  3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
  4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
  5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
  6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
  7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
  8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.

How do i access the freeze plug behind the power steering pump i only have the bolt just under the cap of the power steering pump but the tank part is in the way how do i get to it?


Unfortunately there is no easy way. You need to get a power steering pump pulley puller and remove the pulley, this will allow you to remove the power steering pump and then you can access the freeze plug.

How do i change a freeze plug on a 1993 chevy suburban 1500


They're all replaced the same way. bash in one side of the plug to turn it sideways in the hole. The freeze plug might be impossible to retrieve if it falls into the coolant passage — be careful.
Use a gripping device (pliers, ViseGrip, water-pump pliers, etc.) to get a hold on it, and wrench it out of the hole. Clean the hole thoroughly

coat the sealing surface of the new plug with Permatex No. 2 sealant, and drive the pug in squarely. Fins a pipe or socket that fits into the recess of the plug, and drive it in with that.

You need to do whatever is necessary to get square access to the plug. Sometimes that means removing cross members, sometimes that means removing steering parts, sometimes that means removing the engine.

An alternative is to get an expanding rubber replacement plug. To install those, all that is required is to be able to turn the nut in their center so as to get them to expand into the hole.

On my 20001 chevy silverado 1500 Z71 engauged 4x4 and then steering wheel got hard so hard to steer desangauged still the problem persist


Sounds like a steering pump or steering gear problem. Remove Power sterring pump cap while engine is running and see if fluid is moving. GM's are bad about PS pump shafts breaking. If no fluid movement, Replace pS pump
