That is hard for me to say, I wouldn't think it should be too much. I would think you could change a belt in an hour so most shops have a 1 hour minimum on labor charges and you should be able to buy a belt for less than 40-50 dollars tops. I would think that depending on your local labor rate that 140-150 tops.

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.

My 56 ford focus 1600 zetec is making an awful noise when even slightly turning the steering wheel in either direction, does this mean my power steering has had it????


No most likely the power steering needs a new belt, when they loosen off or start to decay they squel lodly, ofetn they can be tightened up but for the cost involved just buy a new one. if the steering still feels like it is working correctly but just noisey then most likely it is fine and it will just be the belt.

on a car this year the power steering rack and pump should last another few years yet.

Hope this helps, p.s a garage will not charge much to fix this.

I have a 2006 chevrolet malibu and the power steering keeps going on and off. this could be very dangerous

Is the power steering belt making any noise, skreeching etc?

Check your fluid level for the power steering, it could be low or even leaking as it sounds like air is getting into the system, make sure the belt is tight enough also.

Sound as though you have a serpentine belt . One belt that runs all of your pump in front of your motor. Your belt broke or your belt tension er failed. First fix hose leak then replace belt. Easy should not cost more than $50 at a good shop, unless tensioner need to be replaced up to $150.
