SOURCE: removing power steering pump

To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:

  1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
  2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
  3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
  4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
  5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
  6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
  7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
  8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.

Do i have to remove the power steering pump, to replace the pressure line. on a 2007 chevy impala, 3.5 liter


This is the procedure in the AUTO ZONE repair help...note that it has you remove the hoses AFTER removal of the pump. If they could be removed in place it would have had you do that prior to pump removal.

3.5L & 3.9L Engines

Please note that the power steering pump pulley must be removed to access the pump retaining bolts. Special tools are required to draw the pulley off the pump shaft and to later press the pulley onto the pump shaft. A shop press cannot be used to install the pulley or the pump will be damaged.
  1. Place a drain pan under the vehicle.
  2. Remove the coolant surge tank (coolant reservoir).
  3. Remove the cosmetic/acoustic engine cover.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  5. Remove the accessory wiring junction block and set aside.
  6. Remove the power steering pump pulley from the pump noting the following:
    1. Use a power steering pump pulley remover. These pullers typically have a ridge that surrounds the collar on the pulley center.
    2. Turn the puller screw making sure the center screw is centered in the end of the pump shaft.
    3. Draw the pulley from the pump shaft.
  7. Disconnect the pressure line and return hose from the power steering pump.
  8. Unfasten the pump retaining bolts and remove the pump from the engine.

Fig. Power steering pump mounting and the pulley removal and installation tool.

To install:
  1. Install the pump to the engine. Install the bolts and tighten to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
  2. Connect the power steering return line.
  3. Connect the power steering pressure line. Using a -crows foot- adapter and a torque wrench, torque the pressure line fitting to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  4. Install the power steering pump pulley noting the following.
    1. Use a power steering pump pulley installer such as J 36015, or equivalent. This type of installer threads into the end of the pump shaft. A nut is then turned to press the pulley onto the pump shaft.
    2. The face of the pulley hub must be flush with the end of the pump shaft.

      WARNING
      Do not attempt to use a shop press to install a pump pulley.

How to change cam sensor on pontiac GR AM 3,4L 1999


Place a jack underneath the engine with a block of wood on it as to not damage the engine and pump up the jack just enough to keep the engine from sagging down. Then remove the engine mount near the power steering unit. Removing the motor mount doesn't have to be done, but it makes it easier to remove the power steering pump (your choice). Remove power steering pump and set it aside keeping all the hoses attached. Camshaft position sensor is located beneath power steering pump. It should be held on by 1 bolt if I remember right. Disconnect the 2 wire harness and remove sensor.

Easiest way to add power stearing fluid to a 2001 chevy impala v6 ??


Locate the cap to the power steering fluid reservoir
bc25493.jpg Remove cap and fill reservoir with GM Power Steering Fluid (P/N 89021184) or any fluid a knowledgeable parts department says is compatible. It may not look like much but there are a few dozen steering fluids available out there and lots of systems aren't compatible with many of them (wrong fluid will disintegrate seals, pumps, etc...)
