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.

SOURCE: 98 Astro Van Intermittant Power to Fuel Pump Relay

I've been bitten by this twice! The culprit both times was the connector plug under the van infront of the fuel tank. the second time the connector pin and socket came loose inside the plug itself,( workes for a while then dosen't). Make sure there is good secure contact made in all sockets in this plug, and the pins are held where they need to be inside the plug itself.

Sounds to me like the hydroboost system has a stuck biass valve in the hydrobooster. The sytem works both the brakes and the steering.

It is located in the gas tank, you will need to remove the sending unit at the top fo the tank. To access the sending unit, you will need to drop the tank by removing the straps. It is a big tank so drain as much as possible and disconnect the batter before you start.

Hope this helps

My '95 Chevy Astro has a leak in the Power steering pump. Should I repair or replace the pump. Is it a difficult job to replace it?


I would p/u a rebuilt unit at the local parts store rather than trying to rebuild it.

Changing the pump is pretty straightforward, not too cramped. You will need a pulley puller and you will need to bleed the system after install. Don't forget to change the belt.

Tip: if you register @ autozone.com, they offer step by step remove/replace instructions on most common part including the power steering pump for your Astro.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1995 chevy astro van and the breaks and steering have lost power. The fluid's are full, and I can not detect any broken lines. What could it be?


Your van don't have the regular air (vacum) power brake booster, your has a hydraboost brake booster, which is power by your power steering pump, if power steering pump goes bad you will not have power steering or brakes, brake peddle will feel very hard and will take alot of pressure on the brake peddle to stop your van, more the likely your power steering pump is bad.

Lost power steering and brakes on 96 Astro


Hello altgraph1: My name is Roger and I can help. The power steering and the brakes are directly connected. If the power steering pump fails you will also loose the brake assist. This vehicle does not have a vacuum booster you have a hydro-boost brake system. This unit uses the power steering pressure to assist the stopping of the vehicle. You will need special tools to determine if the power steering pump failed or if the hydro-boost system failed. Most likely the power steering pump failed. How ever to be sure it should be tested first. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

1995 chevy astro van


Mine just did same (2001). Have them check the power steering pump--shaft broke in mine. This affects the brakes as well since both power brakes and power steering run off same system in Astros. Broken shaft messed up the booster system.
