I own a 1982 Ford Fairmont Futura. 200 6 cyl.80, owner.. Power steering pump was replaced. Same problem, no power steering. Mechanic said rack/pinion,I say I got bad pump... Squeal constantly

A perfect pump will squeal... being improperly forced or
trying to work with a defective rack!

Might be tire to heed the advice of your paid professional...

What is the smog equipment part between the carburetor and intake manifold on a 1982 Ford Fairmont Futura straight six engine called?

I believe your talkng about an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) plate. This is a ported plate that allow exaust gasses to be recirculated back into the intake stream. Attached to it is the EGR valve itself. Here is a pic diagram showing the assembly. The plate is listed here as a carburator spacer.

I need a wiring diagram for my heater/ac blower motor switch, the manifold is shorting out and i dont have any sort of heat in my vehicle. Its a 1982 ford fairmont, straight six 3.3.

2 possible solutions: Either pick up the Haynes manual from local parts store or or stop by local Ford dealer - parts dept should be able to provide or make you a copy of wiring diagram. Diagrams are getting hard to find free these days online and even harder for older cars.
