3 bolts on the pump to loosen and then it will swing enough The bottom boltt is at 6 o clock. . Pulley is not removed. Sometime old belt is tight and could make it difficult

My 94 cadi fleetwood broughm has a fuel problem. The #6 spark plug keeps flooding with fuel. I replaced the injector, the regulator, the filter what else could it be?

Possibly the spark plug is not firing.. Change the plug. Check to see if it is firing? If its not then find out why? Coil, Plug wire, Plug wire connector, Possibly something as sinister as the computer, but, i doubt that it is the computer.

1986 cadillac fleetwood power steering belt

Below are 2 diagrams. Replace the bolts you've removed. Rotate existing belt counter clockwise to disengage the belt tensioner. Once it releases, you should be able to remove the old belt and replace it (using the diagram below). Once you start the car, the belt tensioner will automatically take up the slack.

After driving over 60 mph, steering gets difficult. On slight turns in that speed on the freeway, steering starts to **** then gets loose, constantly. What should I do?

Check your power steering fluid when hot. If that's ok, then I would suspect the belt slipping. Check the condition of the serpentine belt. If it's loose or shows signs of wear or aging, replace it with a new one.

Check that the arm that goes between the rear axle and the level control on the body has not come off or broken. You can pull the fuse temporarily to keep the pump from running so the battery does not go dead.
