SOURCE: power steering pump

This removal is rather involved: use a turkey baster to suction out PS fluid,disconnect neg battery cable, remove serpentine belt, raise vehicle, support on jack stands, disconnect Oxygen sensor wiring harness from vehicle wiring harness, (access to this connection is thru the wiring harness grommet in the floor of the vehicle) remove catalytic converter from the exhaust manifold, remove exhaust system hangers/isolators from the bracket on the exhaust system, move the exhaust system as far as possible to the rear and left side of the vehicle, remove accessory drive splash shield, detach the ps supply hose coming from the fluid reservoir, from the fitting on the ps pump, plug the hose to prevent fluid leaking all over, remove ps pressure line from pump, plug this line also, remove ps return hose, plug line, remove nut attaching pump (@ rear of pump) to mounting bracket, loosen 3 bolts at front ps bracket, remove pump and bracket as an assembly, now remove 3 bolts and separate, reverse to install. Yes, it's a b-itch. good luck, countrycurt0

SOURCE: replace power steering pump and lines 1992 cadillac seville sts

you need to have a pulley puller to get the pulley off if you don't have one most auto zone part stores have a loan a tool program and they can help you with that on most powersteering pumps the high pressure line will be a fitting or bolt on and the return line is usually just a squeeze clamp hope this helps good luck

I see this is a two part question...
In replacing the alternator, there is no reason at all to be messing with the pulley on the power steering. That pulley is pressed on and though you could remove it with a puller it is far more difficult to re-install without the proper tools. (it is not hammered on). Power steering pulleys don't just fall off. They are so tightly pressed onto the shaft that they don't even require a retaining bolt to hold them on.
Without the benefit of being able to examine it myself, I'd have to guess that either you originally had a mis-match of pulley to pulley shaft and the pulley was sliding on the shaft (so remote a concept that you may be hit by a meteorite if you buy that) Or someone removed it for an unknown reason and did not properly re-install it.

SOURCE: Power Steering Belt slipping

Hi!!

Just apply some ENGINE DEGREASER on the belts and pulleys, rinse them with plain water, making sure the electrical components don't get wet. That will take care of your problem.

Ac, altenator & crank pully alignment


The crank pulley is a 2 piece part, the outer pulley "ring" is insulated from the inner pulley by a special sandwiched rubber ring. The outer pulley on may "walk" off the inner pulley due to engine vibration, this is most common on 4 cylinder engines. The crank pulley is the only pulley that can do this.

My 2005 grand am is squealing badly, replaced idle pull didn't work, could crank pulley or water pump pulley be causing it


Hi Jason remove belt and turn all the pulleys by hand there must be one seizing. And check the crank pully some have a rubber damper that fails and causes the outer pully to spin on the inner one. Good Luck.

Should all the pulleys turn freely even ifthe s-belt isn't on?


not at all if you remove the belt the alternator super charger ac and power steering pully can be turned easly but the crank and cam pully will not move unless you use a wrench or other tool as those are under pressure in the engine its self ie. crank has to move pistons and cam also, now it is possable the power steering may not move as freely as the others cause of the fluid it trys to pump but i havent seen that happen very often

I have a 82 454 with 3 belts an i cant figure out where all the belts go


One for the alternator, one for the power steering and one for the A/C. The longest one should be the alternator and the shortest is power steering. If you look at the engine from the side you will be able to line the pulleys up by eye to get them on right. Both alternator and A/C go over the fan pulley and the crank pulley. The power steering only goes on the crank pulley. Hope this helps.

I have a 1984 Dodge Ram 1/2 ton with V8 318. It has dealer installed a/c also air pump. It looks like it takes at least three belts, maybe four. The truck has been stored for a while and I am not sure that...


You should have a belt routing decal in the engine bay somewhere or under the hood. If the belts are on now and lined up, adjust as needed. If they won't adjust anymore replace with 1 inch shorter belts. The power steering and the air pump usually take seperate belts. The air pump don't take much to power, they usually run off the third groove on the water pump. A/C, Alt. and PS will all run around the crank. Hope this helps some, if not you might could find a Haynes repair manual at the parts store.

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.

check the idler/tensioner pully's and the alternator pully, there is a common problem with one of these 3 going bad, usually an idler pully the best way to check is to get a mechanics stethescope and touch the end to the bolt on the idler pully's you will notice a very distinct sound difference from a smooth pully and one with bad bearings. gm tech here, seen many of these

FOR FIXING THE CRANK SHAFT PULLY WHICH BOLT IS FIX SMALL OR BIG


The large bolt holds on the lower crankshaft pulley for timing belt, the six small bolts hold the larger pulley that drive the alternator, power steering etc. It sounds correct.
