Well this is usually handled in the shop on a lift. as to lower the 2 rear cradle bolts slowley to gain easier access to lines going into the rack.(upper should already be removed). but be verry careful as not to lower too far that the steering shaft pulls apart.

How do the power steering hoses go on on a 2001 Pontiac Aztek and why is there no circular motion inside the pump


The only squared thing on the pump is the "plastic"
fluid tank... Everything else about the design & function
is "circular".

There is ABSOLUTELY circular "MOTION" inside the PUMP...
PLEASE NOTE... there is a giant pulley on the front..
and the design of the pump is all about rotational force of the hydraulic pump (right THROUGH the middle).

High pressure to the high pressure...
(with a possible cooler option in the middle)
Low pressure back to the reservoir

How to replace high pressure hose on a 1994 Silverado Chevrolet pick up truck.


hmmm..which high pressure hose the a/c or power steering hose...if its the a/c u need to take this to a service center. removing the high pressure hose without recovering the freon can cause serious injury.it is under extreme high pressure at all times even when the truck is not running... if its the power steering hose then start by removing the plastic shield in the steering staft at the steering box on the drivers side frame loosen the 18mm line nut then follow it to the other line nut on the back of the power steering pump....but sometimes the pump may need to be removed to to this, if this is the case i recommend u take it to a service center

How to install a power steering high pressure line on a 1998 olds 88 regency


Hi,
You will need line wrenches to get the line off the steering gear assembly (tight in there near the frame sub assembly) First you will want to remove the drive belt from the power steering pump. Then remove the bolts from pump to bracket and lift pump up. On back of pump, remove low pressure line and drain fluid into a container. Under pump, remove high pressure line, and push it downward toward floor. From under car, follow the line to the steering gear, ( the line may have a keeper clamp or two for stationary support to remove along the way) then detach. Installation is reverse of disassembly........Not fun, but doable.....Mike

Power steering fluid leaking pretty good on 2005 chevy impala. not from pressure line ithink. any clues


The power steering pump is belt driven. It is on the engine where you put fluid in. There are two lines that run from the power steering pump to the power steering rack on the firewall. The fluid can leak from the pump, either of the lines or the rack itself. If you are handy you may be able to repair the problem by replacing the bad part. Wear safety glasses when looking for the leak and do not touch the fluid leak when the engine is running. The pressure is high enough to hurt you. If you ignore the problem you will eventually loose the power assist and may be unable to steer the car. Fix it now!








One line is high pressure and the other is a return line. Check them with the engine off and when you think you've found the leak staret the car and look for the leak. If it sprays like a water hose DO NOT TOUCH THE LEAK. The pressure is high enough to cause serious injury.
