SOURCE: Power steering pump still leaks after putting new one in.

the bubbles are just air in the system, it will eventualy go away. are you sure the leak is from the pump or is it just comming out the cap because of the air. also did you chk. the pressure line? that maybe where your leak is. unless you got a crack in the resavor, its most likely the pressure line. there is a pressure line and a return line.

SOURCE: How do you change power steering pump on a 2004 Dodge Dakota

If the pressure hose has a hole in it you will never stop the leak because the fluid can reach 2500 psi. You will have to replace the hose. If the leak is at a fitting you can most likely replace the "o"-ring or washer . Hope this helps.

SOURCE: how do i remove the Powersteering pump in my 1998

Replace the ps pump, brake fluid is not a lubricant, your pump is scored, raise the van, block it, remove the sheild, belt and right axle, and remove the pump, you will have to flush the system with 4-5 litres of PS fliud only. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

SOURCE: Describe how to bypass a heater core in a 97 Dodge

Easiest way to bypass a heater core is to disconnect both inlet and outlet hoses at the engine firewall. Install a right angle hose coupling in each hose. Then install a straight piece of hose to connect the two hoses.

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Dakota replacement serpentine belt too short (w/o air)

the parts store can give you a bigger belt just give them the part# of the belt thats to small which they have a book with the measurements of the belts, tell them you need a belt the same design but 3 inches bigger, its simple, they look in the book and get the belt i do that often at napa auto parts, some part stores have lazy workers, they dont take time to help people, try that, good luck.

Bypass power steering


Attempting to drive a car designed for power steering without the pump will increase the effort at the wheel so you may not be able to steer it.
Go to a junkyard and buy a used pump, cost you less.

Can i bypass the ac compressor on my 1992 dodge dakota 5.2l with a shorter belt from one without ac


I have a 92 Dakota with a 5.2 (318) 4x4, automatic trans. You can simply remove the ac compressor and go with a belt a bit longer then what stock non AC calls for. The idler pulley is in a slightly different location from AC to no AC engines so just getting the non AC belt won't work. I used a 5070900 / 7PK2285 for mine and it worked fine. Just a touch tight getting on. Next time I'll probably go 1/2 inch longer so a 5070905. I'm a licensed tech with 20 years in the trade in Canada, 4 years of that with a Dodge dealer.

I was wondering if i can bypass the powersteering pump with a different serprntine belt


It's possible. It will be difficult to steer. Use a piece of rope to wrap around all tne componants just like the belt would except for the ps unit and look for a belt as long as the rope

Want to bypass powersteering pump on 94 grand caravan 3.3 liter 6 cylinder, pulley making loud noise need new belt size and serpintine diagram if its possible


that's not possible all of those vehicles came stock with power steering so all belt dimensions are taking the power steering pump into consideration,the only one that would change would be the A/C belt depending on whether or not your vehicle came with it or not,a used power steering pump should only cost just a little bit more then a new serpentine belt,hope this helps and good luck

New routing diagram for the drive belt on my 2004 Cherokee. new belt is 13 inchs shorter (this is to eliminate the squeek problem), my local garage is reluctant to advise me!


Click on the following Link. It has the two (2) Serpentine Belt Diagrams.

I believe the Mechanic is bypassing your AC Compressor.
When you look at both of the Belt Routes you can bypass the AC with the shorter belt.
In the first Diagram: the Belt would go from the Power Steering Pump, bypassing the AC and going directly to (over the top) of the Water Pump.
In the second Diagram: the Belt would go from the Tensioner, bypassing the AC and going directly to (under the bottom) of the Water Pump.

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional questions or information. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Power steering pump and belt replacement on 1997 olds aurora


More than likely it's the A/C compressor clutch is going bad. Cut the old serpentine belt off and install a shorter belt to bypass the A/C compressor for now.
