Most likely the belt and pulleys are shiny if you look at them, replace the belt, while you have the belt off try and clean the glaze off the pulley groves, this will make the new belt "grip" better and avoid slipage.

SOURCE: how to tighten power steering belt on 1990 vw jetta

You have to get to it from under the car. Remove the plastic cover piece. There are 5 bolts that need to be loosed to tighten the belt. The bolt at the top of the bracket, the two pivot bolts going into the pump, 1 bolt that is up in the rear bracket of the pump, (bracket bolts to the block) and the bolt that holds the tensioning adjusting bolt on the front of the pump bracket. Turning the long bolt adjusts the position of the pump. All bolts should be 13mm head bolts. The "hidden" bolt on the back bracket xan be reached by using a deep well 13mm socket and a 3 inch extension. The others with a wrench or socket.

93 gmc vandura 3500 box van won't start. I have power, installed new starter and ignition switch, but the starter won't kick.


Some vehicles Red (hot lead) have an inline fuse. Also check for other fuses for the ignition. If you have an alarm system, make sure it is disarmed. That can be done by using the key to open the down some times.

Hi,

This depends on if it is a 1500 - 2500 - 3500 these are also the weights of the vehicle. 1500 = 1.5 ton etc.

Why does my van squeel


You didn't say what type of pump was replaced, water, power steering, or ??? 
If it was the power steering pump you may be low on fluid or the belt is not tight enough. If it was the water pump it still may be the power steering belt was not tighten enough.
Go to www.youtube.com, type in power steering belt and select the appropriate video and it will show you how.
