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. has a great article about power steering flushing, read it before you start Good luck.

You're going to have to bleed the system alot on those trucks. Just remove the return line and have an assistant turn the steering wheel back and forth just enough to engage the pump and filling the resevour while doing this. Keep bleeding until you have a good flow of P/S fluid out with no air bubbles. This can take a while.

SOURCE: Power steering pump on a 1978 Chevy half ton

First, remove the ps belt by loosing the adjustment bolts, then remove the hoses from behind it, then unbolt the bracket from the engine that the pump sits in. I believe that there are three bolts that do this. One off of the exhaust manifold, one on top and one underneath. Once you have gotten pump off of the motor you need to remove the pulley from the pump. KD tools make a great tool for this, part # KD 2897, about 60 bucks at napa. Follow the directions with the tool to remove the pulley and to replace it on the new one. New pumps don't come with the pulley and can be bought with the resevior. The pulley has to come off to get the pump out of the mounting bracket.

Replace power steering pulley on 200 chevy malibu

GM power steering pump pulleys are a pressed on type with an"interference" fit-the hole is .001" smaller than the shaft.You need a puller/installer tool.I bought one for about 30 bucks at NAPA,you might be able to rent one at an auto parts store.The tool clamps the pulley nose and has a screw to push the shaft out.(some Chrysler alternators use the same design).

I can't figure out where to put power steering fluid in my 2004 chevrolet malibu

the 2004 malibu does not have a place to put transmission fluid it has a electric power steering system and does not use fluid, if you are having a problem with the power steering light chimming and lighting up this is under a recall that chevy has obligated to fix. So if your car is doing this take it to your local chevy dealership and have them to repair it for you. Hope this helps.

If you have power seats the seat adjusters are made from aluminum and they do bend.They are non repairable
Check all bushings on the suspension for wear
