If you want diagrams then just go to your local auto parts store and look this up in one of their fix it manuals for that exact car and if you have to wind up buying this manual it is a lot cheaper than paying a mechanic $100 an hour to just scratch his head and tell you what you already know.

02 olds aurora 3.5 no power steering

It could be a collapsed pressure hose. If the car has speed sensor power steering it could be a problem with that system.

I have a 2003 aurora and everytime i turn to the left i feel on the stirring wheel like is grinding can you tell me what the problem is !

Could be the steering rack. I would check the power steering fluid level first. Second, I would look to see that the pulley on the power steering pump is moving properly - I have had cases where the pulley loosens from the hub where it is mounted to the pump. Finally, you could have a bad pump itself.

My power steering is leaking.i think its maybe the hose.but i just brought the dont know.

Congratulations on the new purchase.

Power Steering leak:

There are a few more places than just a hose that could be leaking.


Un less you have some experience working on power steering systems...

Take your car sooner than later to your local mechanic shop to get it inspected. You have a lot to loose.

If the pump runs out of oil it will lock up and then you are really going to have some problums.

Hope this tip helps.

Power steering is very hard on idle but ok when driving

Sounds like the power steering pump is nearing end-of-life. Does the car have a lot of miles?

Steering problem

If you can turn fine one direction and not the other then the pump most likley is not the problem. I would lean more towards the rack and pinion. The pump only supplys pressure, the rack has controls for direction.

Power steering pump and belt replacement on 1997 olds aurora

More than likely it's the A/C compressor clutch is going bad. Cut the old serpentine belt off and install a shorter belt to bypass the A/C compressor for now.
