Most likely the power steering pump is your problem. It sounds like the shaft inside the pump has broken and it is not pumping fluid. I would install a new pump and see what happens. The other option would be the rack and pinion (steering gear). The power steering pump is the cheaper of the two and usually the problem. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: The following procedure requires the use of the GM Puller tool No. J–29785–A (1985–92), Puller J–25034–B (1993–96) or equivalent, and the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J–25033–B or equivalent.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety.

  4. Release tension and remove the drive belt. For details, please refer to Section 1 of this manual.
  5. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
  6. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts, then reposition the pump as necessary for access to the hoses.
  7. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  8. Remove the hoses from the power steering pump and drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
  9. WARNING
    Be sure to cap all openings in the pump hydraulic system to prevent excessive fluid spillage and the possibility of system contamination.
  10. Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle. To install:

    I need to replace my transmission cooler lines on my 1995 GMC Jimmy is there just the bolts that hold them to the transmission and radiator or do I have to lift up on the motor or is there clamps ?


    All of the transmission fluid can leak out. The cooling lines are there to cool the tranny fluid, and it is circulated through the radiator by means of a pump. If a line is leaking, the pump will just empty the fluid out through the leak. The lines are usually just held in place by clamps to keep them from chafing through against the body or chassis, so replacing them should be quite an easy job. Just undo the bolts that hold them to the box and the radiator, undo however many clamps hold them in place, and reverse the procedure with new pipes.

    Trying to find the problem i as soon as i feel my power steering tank up it leaks all out w n a hr an it runs my cooling fan hydro by a line but i looked an looked on all the lines an cannot find the leak...


    Start by checking if the cooling lines run into the radiator. There may be a leak internally on the radiator in the lines run through it. Also check to see if the fluid is leaking from the center shaft on the pulley on the pump. If your power steering fluid is leaking into the radiator your antifreeze will look like a cloudy pink color the same as if your transmission fluid leaks into the radiator. If it is, replace the radiator. If it is leaking out of the shaft replace the power steering pump.

    A oil leak back front of the engine


    Without knowing the make of your car it would be difficult to narrow down. With that said if it is a 2000-2004 Chevrolet then what you are seeing may not necessarily be oil. Check the power steering fluid. If it is low first top it up. From the power steering there is a low pressure line, this line runs down, along the passenger side frame and across the radiator and back again. This is to help cool the fluid. Just behind the passenger tire you will notice a plastic plate. This plate is to help keep debris out of the pulley area. This plate rubs against the power steering line wearing it down through time creating a very small pin hole. This hole will allow fluid to leak while sitting and blow out will driving. Chevrolet power steering fluid looks a lot like oil especially after an oil change. If it is not your power steering then you are looking at 1 or 2 things...(1) oil pan gasket or (2) lower intake manifold gasket both are about $600 to repair. The parts are not that expensive but the labor is about 3-4 hours. I don't recommend changing either if you are not an experience mechanic. The power steering line is relatively an easy fix. Simply cut the line just before it is worn and cut the return just underneath. You will need 4 small claims and rubber hose (suitable for power steering). I suggest 4 but 2 will do (I prefer double clamping) clamp the house to the fresh cut and done. Make sure the house doesn't touch the belt (I suggest tie downs and tire it the frame).

    Transmission leak 2000 gmc sonoma, was driving when smoke started coming from underneath truck,pulled over, all fluid ran out in a matter of seconds.hope it is only a hose, or mabe the cooling line to...


    Common for the transmission line to the radiator has failed due to corrosion. You can replace the line or section it off bad part with a new line, just make sure you use compression clamps. I had the same problem and i ended up running a new line with a inline remote transmission oil filter. B&M makes a universal remote transmission oil filter and runs around $45.00. Good luck and hope it's just the line that went bad, keep me posted.

    Power steering fluid leaked out of 2000 GMC Jimmy


    well it went somewhere, check all the lines and look for signs of recent fluid leaks, it will be very apparent if u lost that much fluid, most likely it will either be the power sterering hoses or the front shaft seal of the pump.
