You must ffirst remove the passenger tire and the splash guard behind it. Its just a few screws. You will then be able to see the power steering pump. Remove the belt followed by the power steering pump hose. The pump is held in place by three screws. Remove them and put the new pump on in its place. It may be easier to install the hoses before mounting the pump. thats the tricky part. Its not hard to do at all, but you will be working in a cramped space. Put your belt on, your splash guard and tire. Now fill w/ ATF not power steering fluid (why? because the owners manual says so... don"t believe check for yourself..) Finally, start the engine and turn the wheel from left to right (all the way) about five times both ways. this works the fluid in. No need to bleed. Check the resevoir and you willl notice less. continue to add turn thw wheel until its stops dropping. Job done

Usually a worn water pump will leak just a little (designed to leak to notify of failure).
Belt, idler pulley, belt tensioner, power steering, the list goes on. Look for wobble when engine running (careful no hands), try to isolate.

I hope this helps.

99 olds intrigue power steering belt very hot, I just replaced the power steering pump, it's makes a clicking sound and is getting very hot, sounds like it could be the steering colume.

remove the drive belt and check each pulley by hand for drag, or noise. Usually noises from the serpentine belt area are from the tensioner pulley, but since you installed a new PS pump I'd pay particular attention to that-also, watch the belt and pulleys for any 'wobble' too.

Need to change power steering hose

it is a big job since you need ro crimp the hoses properly. I would recommend to send this to a specialist since improper fittings would mean leakage or contamination of the fluids which may lead to loss of pressure, damage or accidents.

Hi my camry is leaking power steering fluid

Very common problem on this car. Usually it is a combination of 2 items: the pressure hose to the rack & pinion and the power steering pump itself. Since the hose is located above the pump it most likely will look as if the pump is leaking. Suggestion: if the hose is wet, replace it first (it's a 2 piece deal), then thoroughly clean the area including the pump. Run the car for awhile and recheck for leaks. No leaks - you got off cheap. :)

Power steering is locked up...power steering fluid full

Hi if you have no power steering assist
check to see if the power steering shaft is broken
open the hood and the power steering pump is located on lower left of the engine
use a big screw driver or even your hand and try and pull the power steering pully towards the rad
if you can move the pully out then the power steering shaft is broken and you will need to replace the power steering pump
hope this helps you
