Open Question

I changed the fluid last spring on the part that the motor mounts to. The little box on the side of the pump has the lines going to the ram. Does that have separate fluid ?

in order to determine the cause you need the pump pressure tested, but yes it is likely the pump vanes are bad.

SOURCE: Which way does the spring side of the thermostat

The spring side should go into the housing. So that way when it reading the temp the spring can adjust accordingly.

Terrible whining in the steering? What could this possibly be?


Thank you for the inquiry.
For some reason power steering fluid does get contaminated and needs to be replaced. Worst case the fluid is low and you are hearing gear whine. It's a known issue with this pump to whine when the PSF is contaminated. Needs to be checked and serviced.
Here is a procedure for you Do It Your-self-ers:
You can easily change the fluid yourself, and save a ton of money.

If you follow the lines that go from the steering rack to the cooler located around the radiator area, there's a hose that comes out of the cooler, and connects with a hard line right above the left front frame rail. The connection is a simple spring clamp.

Easy but fairly messy to change. Engine OFF, lift the front of the car to get the front wheels off the ground, put a pan under the hose line, and pulled it loose from the hard line. The bad fluid will drained out, then slowly turn the wheels from side to side a bunch of times to pump out all of the fluid from the rack. When all of the fluid is out, reconnected the line, then fill the fluid reservoir with a high quality Power Transmission Fluid. You can again, turn the wheels side-to-side to get the new fluid into the rack. Then, start the car, again turning the wheels side to side. Top off the reservoir, and should not have any more noise from the power steering pump. It will take a little less than a full quart to completely refill the system.
Kind regards,
TF

1999 Honda Accord passengers side motor mount\r\nSeems to be leaking fluid. Spoke with NAPA and they don't show a motor mount on this vehicle being filled with fluid. Any suggestions?


there could be a transmission line or power steering line that runs near or over the mount that may be leaking or the motor or tranny depending on witch side the mount is on may be leaking onto the mount also a more closer inspection would be in need.

The winshield washer fluid won't work, but it sounds like I can hear the little motor when I push the end of the wiper blade switch


Push the washer fluid button and hold it for 20 sec then look under the truck and seeif you see the washer fluid dripping on to the ground, if theres no sign of the washer fluid then you have a bad washer pump, which is located on the side of the washer bottle, if theres fluid dripping then you will need to follow the line, start at the washer nozzles, this is where it breaks the most, if the line is plastic you can use a peice of rubber hose that size and connect the broken line back together with the hose, hope this helps.

2000 chrysler sebring convertable top will go down but will not


Typically, when when this happens, the system is low on fluid and/or must be bled. Here are the procedures:
Lower the top to the full down position.
  1. Remove the rear seat cushion, seat back and inner quarter trim panels. Pull up sharply on the seat cushion at the front about midway between the middle of the seat and the outside edges. The seat back is held in by nuts. The quarter trim panels are held in by screws I think.
  2. Remove the cylinder mounting brackets and remove the cylinders from the trunnion pivot mounts.
  3. Rotate the cylinders 180 degrees (the hose fittings will now face to front of the vehicle.
  4. Disconnect the motor/pump retaining clips from the body.
  5. Rotate and raise the motor/pump assembly so the reservoir is in the up position. The rubber filler plug will be at the top.
  6. Raise motor/pump fitting to at least 2 inches above the horizontal rear seat back reinforcement.
  7. Tilt the motor/pump assembly to approximately the 10 o'clock position, with the rubber filler plug still at the top CAUTION: THE MOTOR/PUMP ASSEMBLY MUST REMAIN IN THE CURRENT POSITION UNTIL THE RUBBER FILLER PLUG IS REINSTALLED IN THE Step 12.
  8. Remove the rubber fill plug from reservoir.
  9. Fill the hydraulic system by adding Dexron 2 Automatic Transmission Fluid to the bottom of the fill hole CAUTION: DO NOT OPERATE THE TOP SWITCH IN THE UP (CLOSING THE TOP) DIRECTION.
  10. With two people, activate the top switch in the down (opening the top) position to fully retract the cylinder rods and hold for approximately 5 seconds, until the motor/pump stalls. A percolating or gurgle sound/feeling is an indication that the procedure is working.
  11. Top off the motor/pump with Dexron 2 and insert the filler plug.
  12. Install the motor/pump assembly into the vehicle mounting bracket.
  13. Rotate the cylinders back to the original position (hose fitting rearward)
  14. Install the motor/pump lead and hydraulic line clips (the hydraulic line clips are to assist in the production process) to ensure that the seat back/seat cushion do not pinch the lines. If the sticky side is no longer holding to the floor pan, the clips can be left off.
  15. Ensure that the bushing is still on the trunnion pivot mount and bracket. Tap the top switch in (raising the top) to get the cylinder trunnion onto the trunnion pivot mounts, if needed.
  16. Install cylinder mounting brackets.
  17. Raise and lower the top to ensure proper operation.
  18. Install the inner quarter panels, and the rear seat back and cushion.
  19. And Just a fair warning here - you WILL spill fluid inside your car. If you manage not to, I want to know how. I cover everything with garbage bags because there have been a few instances where I accidentally hit the button the wrong way and that stuff went EVERYWHERE. Be careful and good luck.

Will not go into gear(manual)


Pretty good chance it's the clutch but check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder for leaks (also line between). A drastic change often is caused by failure of either component...generally if clutch fails, it is a gradual process (similar to how a brake pad wears)
