    Okay. Sorry. Then i guess you will have to check fuses, or relays. There are also sensors on those, and a servo motor. I really don't know much about them. I have a bad habit of not reading closely what kind of car i'm dealing with... gotta be more careful. Good luck. I'd be very interested to know what you find out.

How do I take out the power steering ump to replace a serpantine belt in a 98 buick park ave?

Vin K or Vin 1 ?
Removal Procedure
The accessory drive belt drives all engine mounted accessories. All driven accessories are rigidly mounted to the engine. Drive belt tension is maintained by a spring loaded belt tensioner. A belt squeak when the engine is started or stopped is normal and has no effect on belt durability. The drive belt tensioner can control belt tension over a broad range of belt lengths; however, there are limits to the tensioner's ability to compensate. Using the tensioner outside of its operating range can result in poor tension control and/or damage to the tensioner.
Important: Ensure that the wood block extends past the width of the oil pan in order to avoid damage.
  1. Use a jack with a block of wood on the jack under the oil pan in order to support the engine.
  2. Remove the engine mount to engine mount bracket nuts.
  3. Remove the engine mount bracket front upper and lower nuts.

Remove the engine mount bracket front upper and lower studs and spacer.
Lower the engine as necessary and rotate the tensioner to remove the drive belt.
Remove the drive belt.
Don't need to remove power steering pump if done right !

Where is the power steering pump located?

The TSX uses Electric Power Steering (EPS) which regulates steering via a computer-actuated electric motor. With the computer-controlled system, advanced algorithms built into the operating software allow for continuous fine-tuning of the steering assist forces so that minimal force is required at low speeds- such as when parking or maneuvering. Conversely, progressively higher steering effort is generated at higher speeds (such as when driving on the freeway) to deliver a sport-minded driving experience.
The EPS system found in the TSX is an evolution of an earlier EPS system found on the Acura NSX supercar. Its key features and advantages include:
  • The EPS system reduces the steering effort at low speeds, improving agility and ease of effort when parking or maneuvering in tight areas
  • Rigidity of the steering mount is higher, which allows a more precise and "connected" feel during high-speed maneuvers (such as during lane changes or when on winding mountain roads)
  • The EPS steering assist incorporates computer algorithms based on vehicle speed rather than engine speed, allowing TSX engineers the flexibility of tailoring the steering feel to match actual driving conditions- especially high-speed driving. The EPS steering algorithms incorporate steering assist changes for every 0.6 mph.
  • The EPS system is different (and uniquely tuned) for each of the TSX models: 2.4L I-4 sedan, 3.5L V-6 sedan, and the new Sport Wagon.
  • EPS employs a sporty, 13.5:1 steering ratio which further improves performance driving agility
  • In its evolution from the original NSX system, the TSX's EPS system uses a significantly more powerful electric motor teamed with a far more sophisticated microprocessor
  • By eliminating the conventional power steering pump assembly, EPS uses less engine power which improves acceleration and fuel efficiency
it is an electric pump without a pulley or belt or fluid apparently

Power steering fluid leaked out

PAS fluid is very searching so it is unwise to make assumptions about where a leak is coming from.

I suggest you wipe or wash the area of suspected leak, add some fluid and watch while it appears, asking an assistant to start the engine/work the steering.

When driving very slow or idle battery light comes on and power steering goes out.

could be as simple as the belt is stretched out and going bad, and will need to be replaced, however I would also take a look at the tensioner pully, it may be going bad as well and not keeping the belt tight enough.

Good luck!

Power steering locked up one day going down road, car died, and every since u can turn it over but it wont crank?? help!!!!

Remove the power steering belt from the power steering pump. Try to restart. Sounds like the power steering pump froze up. If the belt drives more than the power steering pump (like the alternator), you will have drained the battery and the engine will not start. replace pump, charge battery, replace belt....hopefully drive. Good luck.

Tahoe 2001 4 wheel drive. above 60 miles an hour when driving over a bridge abunkment?? The front end shakes violently, my husband said the car felt like it was going to break apart. No one seems to...

You might jack up the truck on the side, leaving one front wheel on the ground, the other suspended. Have someone watch the steering components close to the suspended wheel while another moves the steering back and forth at a medium rate and look for 'unnatural' movements of joints. Do both sides to check.
This sounds like a tie rod end that is shot and these are fairly easy to spot since the joint will move in directions that are obviously wrong.
The reason it doesn't want to stop is that when one wheel is no longer being held rigidly, it will 'oscillate' causing the violent shaking. The boost from power steering worsens the problem. It can be dangerous; a friend had a worn tie rod end come apart while barreling down the Freeway. Steering with one wheel doesn't work. He survived but no longer ignores the signs.
If you had brought the truck to a decent front-end alignment shop, they would have found this while trying (it doesn't work) to align it.
