SOURCE: Car overheated and now leaks coolant

It may be the water pump or the thermostat may be stuck closed. If the thermostat is staying closed it will cause back pressure to the radiator and hose on the top of the engine so water would probably be come out of the overflow tank. To check this open you hood t start the car. when the car is warmed up some take a towel and squeeze the top big black water intake hose going from the top of the radiator into the engine. If it is still very tight/hard the it is probably they thermostat replace it and see. With the leak being in the front it may be the water pump. at the front of the engine start and look for water to start coming out. Also look at All hose end connection for water. GOOD LUCK

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.

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

Power Steering reservoir leaking and dripping on Serpentine Belt, possible cause of loose belt movement (has come off once already). Wobble of A/C Pulley, resulting in A/C not cooling.


Power steering pump shaft seal is leaking, You can add a table spoon of DOT 3 brake fluid to the steering fluid to condition the seal. The A/C pulley wobble is a compressor clutch bearing problem and requires the correct puller to replace. Replace the clutch as a unit, to avoid messing with the bearing. Replace the belt if the steering fluid leak stops. If the brake fluid trick does not work, replace the steering pump. Parts and labor will be better than 200.00

Steering wheel is very stiff. car makes a squeeling noise when started. its a lexus rx300 2002 used mostly on gravel roads


check your power steering: for leaks and also the tightness of the belt. More then likely the belt or the pulley on the power steering is the problem, Tim

Leaking from water pump and timing belt is slasded


If you are losing antifreeze out of the water pump, then that is a sympton telling you it's time to replace the water pump. When you say the timing belt is slashed up, do you mean the serpentine belt that runs the power steering pump, ac pump, alternator, and water pump or have you actually torn the engine apart enough to see the timing belt?

If you in fact mean the serpentine belt, chances are it's torn up because either antifreeze got on the belt making it slick enough to get off track and when they get off track, they can get slashed up pretty quick.

Good Luck

Steering issues


Find the leak and repair it...It is a sealed system, if you are adding large amounts of power steering fluid, it is leaking out somewhere. Hoses, reservoir, steering box, power steering pump are places to check. You should only have to add minimal fluid to the system for the entire year.

The immediate squeal you hear is most probably the unit is out of fluid or has leaked onto the serpentine belt and causing it to slip.
Fix the leak and check your serpentine belt for wear.

A belt snapped, leaked antifreeze and no power steering


If it was the timing belt, the car would have quit right then and there.
It's the belt that drives the fan, water pump and power steering.
Probably what they call the serpintine belt.

Serpentine belt broke and i think the water pump is bad


The battery light and brake light are on because the belt isn't turning the alternator. The house with columns means it is low on antifreeze. You need to put the belt back on an check for antifreeze leaks. I would say you waterpump likely locked up and roasted the belt and that is where the antifreeze is leaking also.

2000 chevy impala ls - oil spray under hood inline with serpentine belt


You may have a lower intake manifold gasket leak (or a head gasket leak-slightly less probable) the lower intake can leak onto the serpentine belt and fling oil (and/or antifreeze). The lower intake manifold gasket is usually the culprit here. There is much information about changing it if you are inclined to do it yourself. If not, expect around 800 to 1200 to fix at dealer/mechanic. This is usually accompanied by (but not always) oil in the antifreeze, or antifreeze in the oil...

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.
