How to change power steering pump on a 3.0 engine


Quite likey you just have a bad o-ring. before condemning the pump, look inside the PS fluid tank while idling. If there are bubbles/foam in the fluid, you probably just need an o-ring on the suction hose adpater on top of the pump.

Sounds like the belt let go and maybe got jammed on the way out. The belt power the alternator, power steering pump and water pump etc. Check for a seized pulley as well. Sometimes the little bearings go.

That is a valid question, but you should ask the shop that worked on it. Also do you know that the power steering pump will cure the problem? This remains to be seen....You can check one thing though...Look at the belt/pulley arrangement from the side. any pulley that is not exactly in line with all others, and any wobbling pulley is suspect. Serpentine belts are far less forgiving of these items than were "v" belts.
Good luck
