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.

Cannister is your steering box...arm is the pitman arm. check to see if there is a thick alignment spline on either the arm or box. This locates the arm in the correct position. If not center the steering wheel(turn all the way to one side and count turns all the way to other side and divide in half for example, three turns from one side to the other side = 1 1/2 turns to center) and put both front wheels straight ahead, then install arm onto box. It is far easier to put it back than it was to remove.

1986 nissan pick up leaks out of sterring box


check to see if the leak is at the shaft that the pitman shaft attaches to. if it is the pitman shaft seal will need replacing. if its leaking out the input shaft, the part that attaches to the steering column, then this seal will have to be replaced. check the power steering hoses closely for cuts and leaks. you may have to wash the area to remove the oil to find the leak.

Steering fluid leak; oil covering steering gear box


if the leak is coming from the steering box there are usually only 3 places it can come from;most common place is the pitman shaft seal,which can be replaced.this is were the pitman arm of the steering connects to the steering box.another place is the steering box input shaft seal,this is were the steering colume connects to the steering box,which can be replace.the last place is the power steering hoses were they connect to the steering box.there are seals that seal the lines when screwed into the box which can also be replaced.so first you need to see exactly were the leak is coming from.rare occasions the steering box is porous which means the box will need replacing.a car of this age should have shown up long ago.you will have to clean the box off at the car wash then run the car and turn the steering wheel all the way to one side,this will build up pressure in the system to show up the leak quicker.

Leaking steering gearbox f-250 1988 5.0 engine


The steering box will have to be removed and disassembled to replace the seal in the pitman shaft and on the steering shaft. You many be able to get a kit that has both seals and the gasket. Be careful to not turn the adjusting screw in the center of the cap as that adjusts the "freeplay". It may be best to take it to a professional.

My 2006 chevy impala has a massive power steering fluid leak, so my power steering goes out. This problem is solved when there is fluid in the system. Do i need to replace the entire power steering pump?...


you just need to check your steering pipes and hoses for any leaks. just replace them if a leak is found. if your reservoir itself has a leak, then your only best bet is to replace the whole ting ..

The steering works fine but the input shaft seal is leaking. I need instructions on how to replace the seal.


Very carefully drill into the seal, after removing the circlip securing the seal in the box, with a 1/16" - 1/8" drill bit until you are through the seal. Then take a wood or sheet metal screw and thread it through the hole til the seal is forced up out of the gearbox. You can do this in the CJ by removing the steering shaft off the input shaft. Use a long (deep) socket to install the new one.
