Question about 1994 Mercury Villager

1 Answer

1994 Mercury Villager suddenly smelled terrible, started squeaking horribly, and then the power steering went. Steering is still possible and easier when the car ran (I parked it ASAP). In the lot I had to do an Incredible Hulk to make the wheels move, but they did move. Was told it's likely the power steering belt. Is there a way for a layman to tell it's not the pump - just the belt?

    The power steering belt was part of the problem. As soon as the car was up on the hoist it was pretty clear (it was hanging there). Turns out the pump did kill the belt!

If you can turn the pump pulley by hand, likely it's OK... If so, change the belt. if not, you know what you need to do.

    also check all other related pulleys for the belt to make sure that one of them is not binding...didn't have to be the ps pump that killed the drivebelt!

Hi Lisa, I'm not certain, but it is possible that the power steering has a separate belt. If the fluid level has remained constant and there are no noticeable leakages, a broken belt is the most likely cause. Regards John

It should like you may have a leak if it took a whole litre. Once you fix the leak you may also find the power steering pump still makes noise. This can be repaired by replacing the pump. I hope this helps.
