Loose steering belt


The belts on most modern vehicles are tensioned automatically. So if you have nose you must get the tensioner pulley checked and the belt checked for wear. Since you gave no make or model or year that is about all i can offer here in advice.

I put an after market power steering pump on truck. I know there is a break in period, but it squeals when i press on the gas.


The belt is a little too loose. Make sure all the belts are properly tensioned. If the vehicle has a separate alternator belt it may be loose as well.

You'll need to replace the belt tensioner as it is probably weak and not keeping the correct tension on the belt.

your power steering belt might be loose or may have stretched due to weather related issues, or may have the adjustment worked loose. suggest you adjust the tension on the belt[power steering belt] youneed to have it tightened. you may even need a replacement pump. is it leaking fluid onto the ground? if so, it may be a loose hose or a busted hose. if you are mechanically inclined, please repost with specifics on if it's leaking fluid or belt is squealing? otherwise,i suggest you have it looked at from a professional. hope this helps and if you need further assistance with replacement of power steering pump, or directions of the belt tension,just ask. we will be happy to assist!

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.

Power steering


Do you know enough about your engine to be able to tell me if it looks like the power steering belt is separate from other belts or is it part of the main serpentine belt? If it's not the belt, check the power steering fluid. Look for red colored fluid, or sometimes clear colored fluid leaks under the car. It could be a blown hose, loose fitting leak, bad PS pump, or a missing belt. Please let me know what you find. Thanks.
