Power steering pump leaking

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.2 v8. I had the power steering pump replaced as well as the hoses and reservoir, but now I have a leak between the pulley and pump. Do i need to get a new pump or just replace the seal? Also How much does the pulley removal tool cost and where can I get one?

    this was a new pump? chances are if it was a rebuilt the pump shaft is scored or otherwise cut down and he seal will fail over and over, buy a new pump.

Try a can of "Bars' Leak" for power steering leaks 1st available at your local auto parts store. It's cheap and can't hurt but may fix your problem!

Advanced Auto Parts has a tool lending policy and a lot of good advice!

My 1991 dodge ram charger has a power steering problem, the reservoir is completely empty in 3 hours after having filled it. what do you think is the problem


Well it is either a power steering hose, the pump itself, or the power steering gearbox leaking.

hoses would be the first thing to look at. Fill it with fluid then with the engine running,. have someone turn the wheel back and forth while you look under the hood. You will see something leaking out if it is that bad of a leak.

Put wrong fluid in power steering of Dodge Ram 1500 pickup. How to flush and refill? 2004 Ram 1500 4.7liter engine V8 Quadcab 4X4.


They make a machine to do this, but it is too expensive to buy for just one use. The best thing to do it to take off the power steering lines where the connect to the steering rack. Then start the truck and it will pump out the fluid in the reservoir. Feel free to keep adding fresh fluid to it while its running just to ensure all is out. Then, to get the fluid out of the steering box, connect the lines back up, fill the reservoir, and with the vehicle running, crank the steering wheel back and forth from lock to lock. This will take the fluid from the rack and eventually bring it back to the reservoir. You must then again disconnect the lines and flush it out of the reservoir. You may want to repeat this several times, it may take a long time, but will be cheaper than replacing the steering rack, box, pump, and lines. Good luck, and have fun. :-P

Whining coming from washer fluid reservoir area, engine is off?


A whining noise in that area is most likely the power steering pump. Does it do it with the engine running or when the engine is off?
