If the fuel pressure was low enough to give lean codes then u would have a loss of power that you would easily notice, you say you checked for vacuum leaks, did you use a can of carb spray or a bottle of propane? it only takes a very small leak to trigger the codes, spray carb spray around the intake area, see if the engine sound changes, this will indicate a leak,

SOURCE: power steering fluid leek on 89 honda accord

Should not be too hard. I have not done one on an 1986 model but I have on a 1983. The principle will be the same.

  • You need to drain the fluid.
  • Disconnect all the pump hoses.
  • Release the pump pivot and adjustment bolts and remove the pump from the vehicle.
Replacement is the reversal of the removal operation.
  • Tighten all the bolts.
  • Adjust the drive belt tension.
  • Fill and bleed the system.
Following the above procedure should get the job done. Take your time doing the job and double check your work at the end of the job. Check for any fluid leeks from the system.

SOURCE: attempting to replace power steering pump.

Why are you trying to remove the flywheel? Do you mean the pump pulley? If you loosen the mounting bolt and the adjuster bolt of the pump, it will move so that you can remove the belt. The procedure for removing the pump is as follows:
Clamp the power steering feed hose shut so fluid loss will be minimized when the hose is disconnected.
Disconnect the feed hose and pressure line at the pump. Note the difference between the pressure and the feed hoses; the feed hose is held to the pump with a spring type clamp, and the pressure line has two bolts holding it to the pump body. Cap of plug the line and hose to prevent leakage or contamination.
Note the drive belt tension (you will have to return the belt to your estimate of that tension when you replace the pump).
Remove the pump mounting bolt and adjuster bolt. Remove the pump.
Installation is reverse of removal. Install a new o-ring on the end of the pressure line. Make sure to adjust the drivebelt tension (lever it back to where you estimate it way). Check the power steering fluid level and add some, if necessary, then bleed the power steering system (while the car is running turn the wheels all the way to the right and to the left four or five times).
Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: illustrations of removal of power steering pump on

Here is a good link. Check out the video. Changing the pump is a pretty simple task, especially if you bought the pump with a new pulley. If you only have the pump you will need a pulley removal/installation tool. Check your belts to see if they need replacing because now would be a good time to do it since they have to come off to take off the power steering pump.

1999 mercury cougar power steering leak

it depends if it is your high pressure or low pressure line if it is the high pressure line you can purchase at an auto parts store for about $60-$70. If it is your low pressure line good luck finding a replacement. But what I did that cost me about $5 was buy a gas line that fit and a couple clamps and I cut out the section with the leak and installed the gas lin in its place. But remember you can only do that simple fix with the low pressure line.

Power steering tank wont hold fluid and leaks out beside driver tire

Sounds like a blown power steering line. To confirm, wipe down all surfaces around the power steering unit including the lines. Replace the power steering fluid and start the engine. While 1 person is inside the truck, have them turn the wheel from side to side while another watches the area around the power steering unit paying very close attention around the lines. The high pressure line is the most common cause for leaking fluid. If there's no crack or kink in the line, the issue may be the fitting itself where it connects to the power steering pump. Both parts are pricey but replacing the high pressure line (about $150 at the dealer) is certainly less expensive than replacing the whole power steering unit itself.

Power steering fluid pours out when i crank the car

When you crank the engine, it rotates the pulley on the power steering pump. As the pump spins the fluid passes through the pump, rack and pinion and the high and low pressure lines. The high pressure lines are usually the culprit. The high pressure line can be identified as a metal line going into a rubber hose off of the power steering pump. Have someone crank the engine as you trace the leak. Be sure to wear safety equipment, like safety glasses and gloves to protect yourself from any squirting fluid.

Power steering fluid leaking pretty good on 2005 chevy impala. not from pressure line ithink. any clues

The power steering pump is belt driven. It is on the engine where you put fluid in. There are two lines that run from the power steering pump to the power steering rack on the firewall. The fluid can leak from the pump, either of the lines or the rack itself. If you are handy you may be able to repair the problem by replacing the bad part. Wear safety glasses when looking for the leak and do not touch the fluid leak when the engine is running. The pressure is high enough to hurt you. If you ignore the problem you will eventually loose the power assist and may be unable to steer the car. Fix it now!

One line is high pressure and the other is a return line. Check them with the engine off and when you think you've found the leak staret the car and look for the leak. If it sprays like a water hose DO NOT TOUCH THE LEAK. The pressure is high enough to cause serious injury.

Power steering pump leak

Usually it is the high pressure line. They have compressed fittings, and over time they begin to leak, due to the high pressure.

How do you change power steering pump on a 2004 Dodge Dakota

If the pressure hose has a hole in it you will never stop the leak because the fluid can reach 2500 psi. You will have to replace the hose. If the leak is at a fitting you can most likely replace the "o"-ring or washer . Hope this helps.
