Why is my power steering pump still screaming?


The screaming is caused by the pressure relief valve located inside the pump body opening.

This means that power steering fluid that should be circulating through the power steering servo is partially blocked.

This could be a safety problem in the making. I strongly suggest you take it to a trustworthy shop for a checkout.

Were is the camshaft sensor on a 1998 cutlass 3.1


Look under the power steering pump in between the pump and the intake. The connector is the three wire connector that is on the passenger front off the engine right above the valve cover. The power steering pump needs to be removed in order to service the cam sensor.

Is the power steering pump in a chevy 1/2 ton 5.7 l 1998 electronic?


vladkov your an idiot power steering systems run on hydraulic power. The pump is driven by the engine with forces fluid through the gear and assists your steering efforts. I have changed my steering gear twice and my pump. There's nothin electronic about it. Steering assist is electronic and thats a whole diifferent ball game, it only comes on newer vehicles. Changing a p/s pump on a 98 chev is pretty simple, you just need a puller to pull the pulley off so you can get at the mounting bolts. Take those and your 2 lines off (making sure to mark which one goes where) and that's pretty much it.

Trying to change water pump on my 1998 bonneville ssei, there is a bolt behind the power steering pump. do i have to remove power steering pump? if so, how?


Ok here it is. Remove the two bolts thru the holes in the power steering pump pulley. Leave the power steering pump where it is just move it aside a little to access the bolt or bolts. Then it is hard to line up the power steering holes to the block so be careful and good luck.

Is it difficult to change power steering system on 1998 wrangler


Are you putting power steering on the jeep???? If so, you will need a new power steering sector first, than a power steering pump. All of this is easy to do. all of it bolt on.
