1999 Silverado Power Steering Stopped Working

Does anyone have a detailed manual or spec sheet on the power steering pump and surrounding areas? I am pretty good with trucks, but need some help on this one.
Thanks

    Hey Moe,

    The power steering quit all together. I'm quite sure it is the pump, but I can't find a diagram detailed enough to be able to change it myself. Do you by any chance have a diagram or any advice on changing it myself? I'm pretty good with this stuff if I have a guide or manual.

    Thanks again,

    Kieran

    I took a hard turn and the power steering went out all together. I'm still able to drive it, it just works like it's manual right now. The belt is intact and spinning just fine. No other repairs have been done lately, before or after. There is fluid in the resevoir. Does this help? Thanks for replying.

    Any way you could be more specific. Is the pumps res. full? Is the belt on the pumps pulley? Does the wheel turn hard or not at all? If it doesn't turn at all, will it turn with the wheels off the ground? Any resent repairs or adjustments done to the truck prior to problem?

  • Moe May 11, 2010

    Is the pump noisy? Is it rack & pinion or steer box? Power steering pumps are self contained with the presure pump and relief valve. There is a control valve contained in the steering gear but it doesn't fail in both directions. If the pump is working and you turn the wheel to it's max,you should get a rise in presure that changes the noise pitch. If not ,probably the pump itself. Presure at max is 1200psi. Good luck Moe

When you go and buy the new pump it will come with instructions. the hardest part of the job is the pulley. "don't use a hammer on it or pry on it" It can only be removed with a special P/S puller tool. If you have a Autozone near by you can rent it for nothing. Follow the instructions, press it off, remove the pump, install the new pump, press the pully back on(the face of the pully should be flush with the shaft), fill, purge, and check for leaks.

1999 Silverado K1500. No Power Steering


While the engine is running look in the reservoir and see if the fluid is flowing.If you can`t tell then remove the belt and pull out on the pulley.What will happen on some of these is the pump steering shaft will sheer off.It will still stay in place but it is not turning anything.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2000 2500 Silverado 6.0 no power steering or power brakes.


It sounds like you lost the power steering pump or belt. The brakes utilize pressure from the power steering pump via the hydro-boost. If it is the pump, and the belt is still intact, you will probably want to replace the belt as well.

The power steering pump shaft may have broken inside the pump. I have seen this happen on a these trucks. Have your pump checked.

Power steering - 1999 chevy silverado


You're going to have to bleed the system alot on those trucks. Just remove the return line and have an assistant turn the steering wheel back and forth just enough to engage the pump and filling the resevour while doing this. Keep bleeding until you have a good flow of P/S fluid out with no air bubbles. This can take a while.
