Your van has a serpentine belt, it not only operates the power steering, it also operates the alternator, and the water pump.I wouldn't drive it until that belt is on it, it will over heat and do other damage.

have your engine steamed wash first. your engine might be soaked with transmission fluid and when the engine warms up, oil starts to heat up and cause it to smoke.

I have a 1983 z28 camaro that was origanally crossfire but the last owner put a carbed 305 motor in it, now the altenator sit at the right on the top of the motor and the power steering on the bottom...


The alternator should be top left, not top right. Top right would be for the A/C pump. Belts go like this. Innermost crank pully to power steering. Next pully out on crank goes over the fan and the alternator. Get a throttle cable bracket for a 1982 Camero. That year the engine was carburated. You can also use parts from a Firebird but not a TransAm in those years.

The power steering is out and I can hear a pulley going bonkers. There is a squealing sound like a belt isn't catching, and also an oscillating sound like a pulley is loose and moving back and forth or...


i am having a similar problem. my power steering pully is loose. im pretty sure i have to replace the pump and the pully however my power steering still works but the belt squeals.check all the pullys they drive the belt or belts. its usually always either the tensioner thats the pully that allows you to remove the drive belt or the power steering pully which sucks the most because you must remove the entire power steering pump to replace the pully and since you have to go through all that trouble you might as well replace the entire power steering pump as well. i am not a mechanic so try and find more information.

I have a ford galaxy and my power steering belt has snaped the new one wont fit back on witch pully is the ajuster


if you look at the engine youll see the alternator directly above the alternator you will see a pully which doesnt have grooves on the surface like the rest of the pullys. this smooth pully is the tensioner pully and you will need to use a large ratchet or spanner to to lift up the pully (its on a spring) so you can fit the belt.
shiney pullys indicate that they sit or rest on the outside of the belt.

hope this helps

Serpentine belt came off need to know how it goes back on


this is hard to exsplain without showing you a photo ,but i will try. first get the belt around the engine crankshaft which is the pully closest to the bottom and center of the engine. when standing in front of engine start to lead the belt to the right and connect to power steering pump then up to generator, next thare is going to be a smooth pully not groved like the others to the left,put the smooth side of the belt on bottom of this pully and continue left to the ac/compressor go around ac/compressor andstraight down to the belt tensioner , and then right over to the water pump which has a smooth pully not grooved. remember the smooth pullys will always carry the smooth side of the belt and the grooved pullys the grooved side of belt. the belt tensioner will half to be released by a serpantine belt tensioner tool sold at your local auto parts store. these instructions is for 3.8 liter engine, if you have a 4.6 liter engine it will be different, so repost stating that you have a 4.6 if this dont help
