I WILL LIKE TO KNOW HOW CAN I REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PUMP ON A 2001 CHEVY MALIBU


1. Remove serpentine belt

2. loosen power steering pressure and return hoses

3. Remove nut from pressure line mounting on alternator bracket

4. remove power steering pump mounting bolts.

5. Lift pump assembly from engine mounting and remove hoses.

6. Reverse order to install. Fill and bleed system.

NOTE: A new or rebuilt power steering pump will most likely not come with a pulley attached. You will need a power steering pulley remover/installer tool to transfer the pully from the old pump to the new one.

How to remove pully from powersteering pump?


You need a power steering pulley puller. This is about the least expensive one that you will find:

Be careful not the bend the pulley as they are $100-200 for a replacement! Soak the center shaft with a quality penetrating oil like Kroil or PB Blaster for a day or two before.

  • xus LS 400 and locate the power steering pump pulley, fluid reservoir and pump on the upper front driver side of the engine.
  • 2 Connect the pulley remove tool to the front of the power steering pulley. Brace the arms on the pulley tool on the **** of the pulley. Connect the metal key in the middle of the pulley tool to the nut in the middle of the pulley. Connect the power drill to the pulley tool and pull the trigger to remove the pulley securing nut. Remove the drive belt and the pulley.
  • 3 Position the drain container under the power steering pump. Remove the drain plug from the bottom of the pump using the metric ratchet set. Let the fluid drain from the pump into the drain container. Replace the drain plug to the bottom of the power steering pump.
  • 4 Remove the securing bolts from the right and left side of the reservoir and the pump using the metric ratchet set. Pull the pump upward and disconnect the hose from the bottom of the pump using the wrench. Pull the pump from the engine compartment.
  • 5 Lower the new power steering pump into the engine compartment. Reconnect the hose to the bottom of the power steering pump. Position the new power steering pump onto the engine. Replace the securing bolts the right and left side of the pump and reservoir. Tighten the bolts using the metric ratchet set.
  • 6 Replace the power steering pump pulley the opposite way that you removed it. Reconnect the drive belt.
  • Fill the power steering pump reservoir with fresh power steering fluid. Start the engine and rotate the steering wheel to circulate the new power steering fluid. I no i gave you directions on how to remove the whole power steering pump question is the pully loose or are you wanting to just change a belt good luck happy holidays

    Doing a water pump on a 01 chevy impala wit a 3.8. and the last dam bolt on the pump is right in line wit the p/s pully , and not where the holes would normaly line up wit it but its right on the rib line....


    If you can't reposition the P/S pully to line up the hole and bolt you will need to remove the power steering pump to get to that last bolt. Good luck.

    Belt replacement 1990 acura integra


    Ok, you will need a 10 mm socket and extension and a 14 and 15 mm wrench. One of the "idler" pullies is actualy an adjustable tension pully. loosen the center nut on the pully, and then begin loosening the 10 mm bolt from above. as you loosen it, the pully will drop, and soon enough you can slip the belt off.
    good luck
