Question about 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

What is a fair price for a gear box and a power steering pump for my 2002 Chevy Tahoe?? Also, what is a fair price for the labor as sometimes that's more than the parts? I'm being told I need one of these or maybe both and I don't want to be taken to the cleaners!! Thank you!

    The steering is tightening up when turning. Feels like there is no

    power steering. Told the gear box is gunked up, maybe power

    steering pump problem too.

    about 4 hours of labor and then a front end alignment, labor rates here are $125 per hour, so with align in my area $500 in labor. Parts about $800

How do I replace a power steering gear box in 1971 chevy c10


In general terms, its fairly easy.
You need to disconnect the pitman arm, the steering coupler to the column, the ps hoses, and unbolt it from the frame.
The tricky part is getting the steering wheel and pitman arm aligned so the steering wheel is centered when you put it back together.
Some are notched so you have to put it back one way, some are not.

How often do I have to change the power steering fluid in my 2002 chevy tahoe?


most people never do change power steering fluid at least not until power steering has a problem where you are forced too, but if its never been done, it would not be a bad idea.

if you put fluid in it and it starts working it is not the pump, have someone turn the wheel left then right while you watch for leaks. you should see if it is leaking from a hose

My 2002 chevy tahoe steering is hard like the steering pump is not working,what could the problem be? I checked the oil level and the pump turns when the engine is running.


COULD BE A SIMPLE CLOG, AND THERE WERE SOME ISSUES WITH THE PLASTIC NIPPLE WHERE THE HOSE CONNECTS TO THE PUMP CRACKING OR EXPLODING IN SOME INSTANCES. IF YOU HEAR A WHINE OR FEEL VIBRATION THAT MATCHES THE SOUNDS WHILE TURNING YOUR PUMP MIGHT BE BAD, OR POSSIBLE THAT ANOTHER PULLEY BEARING IS BAD. REPLACE PUMP AND IM GUESSING YOULL HAVE YOUR TAHOE BACK THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

Loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently


Dealer, but did you check the Power steering fluid level??or any leaks. There are two hose that connect to the gear box from the power steering pump. if the pump is low on fluid you lose your power steering, if the hose has a leak or it blew and lost the power steering fluid then you lost your power steering again. 
Check the fluid level to the power steering pump and any leaks or broken hose to the gear box.
Keep me posted, be glad to help and good luck.

Believe it or not there are some problems you should take to the dealer. It never was the gear box, its a defective steering column bushing. That problem had a factory notice and the dealer would have diagnosed it immediately an fixed it free parts +$40.install. Tahoes get that problem.

Can't get the old power steering pump off to install the new one


First of all why are you doing it? I am having an issue with my 02 Tahoe, 5.3, 4wd, that mainly when turning left, at any speed, usually when not on the gas, it is hard to turn. Feather the gas, and all is fine. Does occur to the right sometimes, but not as noticeable. I did order an new pump, and am changing it Friday night, Jan 2. I will let you know if you did not already complete.
