  1. Disconnect the return line at the pump and drain the fluid into a container.
  2. Disconnect the pressure line from the pump.
  3. Loosen the pump bracket nuts and remove the drive belt. On the 4.9L engine or 5.0L engine with a serpentine drive belt, remove belt tension by lifting the tensioner out of position.
  4. Remove the nuts and lift out the pump/bracket assembly.
  5. If a new pump or bracket is being installed, you'll have to remove the pulley from the present pump. This is best done with a press and adapters.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal. Note the following torques:
    Pivot bolt (4.9L and 5.0L): 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm) Pump-to-adjustment bracket: 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm) Support bracket-to-engine (5.8L): 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm) Support bracket-to-water pump housing (4.9L): 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm) Support bracket-to-water pump housing (5.0L, 5.8L): 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm) Pressure line-to-fitting: 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm) Adjustment bracket-to-support bracket: 4.9L, 5.0L, 5.8L: 45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm); 7.5L and Diesel: Long bolt-65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm) Short bolt-45 ft. lbs. (61 Nm)

Hope this help to solve it.

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

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 belt needs to be replaced and tightened, how do i do it?

The belt is changed by loosening the power steering pump at the adjustment bolt and also the pivot bolt: The following instructions tell you how to remove the whole power steering pump, but you just have to adjust the tension with it.

A long pry bar might help to tighten the tension until there is like 1/2" to 3/4" deflection in the middle of the belt between two pulleys, and when running there doesn't appear to be a lot of play in the appearance of the belt while the pulleys are rotating, and that when the steering wheel is turned, you don't hear any squealing indicating a slipping of the drive belt.

Good luck on this repair:

  1. Remove the hoses at the pump and tape the openings shut to prevent leakage.
  2. Remove the pump drive belt.
  3. Remove the retaining bolts, any braces and the pump.
  4. If a new pump is being installed, and the pulley is being transferred, a puller is necessary to remove the pulley. To install:
  5. Torque hose fittings to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm). Fill the reservoir with approved power steering fluid and turn the pump backward (counterclockwise as viewed from in front) until bubbles no longer appear in the reservoir.
  6. Any time the pump is removed, air must be bled from the system upon reinstallation. Bleed the system as described in the next procedure. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the power steering pump assembly 85848076.gif

Where to I put the power steering fluid? I can't

Hi, without looking at the engine in front of me, I can tell you to look for the belt that operates everything, and you will find the power steering pump. It will have a small pulley on it with the fan belt around that. It will also have a cap on the top of it. You remove the cap to pour the fluid in. On the body of the pump it will have 2 lines 1 for full cold and 1 for full hot. This means if the engine is hot from driving or cold from setting. Should be very easy to find if you follow what I have said. Good Luck,

Hi, no need to raise the engine. you can use these steps to replace your pump.

To replace the power steering pump, proceed as follows:

1. Disconnect the power steering return hose from the remote reservoir or pump. Allow the fluid to drain from this hose into a drain pan. Discard the used fluid.
2. Loosen the bracket or belt tension adjusting bolt, and the pump mounting bolt.
3. Loosen the belt tension until the belt can be removed. On some cars, it is necessary to lift the vehicle on a hoist and gain access to the power steering pump from underneath the vehicle.
4. Remove the hoses from the pump, and cap the pump fittings and hoses.
5. Remove the belt tension adjusting bolt and the mounting bolt, and remove the pump.
6. Check the pump mounting bolts and bolt holes for wear. Worn bolts must be replaced. If the bolt mounting holes in the pump are worn, pump replacement is necessary.
7. Reverse steps 1 through 5 to install the power steering pump. Tighten the belt as described previously, and tighten the pump mounting and bracket bolts to the manufacturer's specifications. If o-rings are used on the pressure hose, replace the o-rings. Be sure the hoses are not contacting the exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, or exhaust pipe during or after pump replacement.
8. Fill the pump reservoir with the manufacturer's recommended power steering fluid, and bleed air from the power steering system as described earlier.

How do I remove oil pump pulley to replace the water pump?

If you mean the power steering pump, it will have to be removed to access the bolt. It's just 2 bolts. You get them through the holes in the power steering pump. Just unbolt it and push it aside.

I need to move the power steering pump to replace the water pump

the pulley needs to be removed to remove the PS pump, this pulley is pressed onto a tapered shaft (they used a bolt around 35 years ago), it requires a special power steering pulley remover/installer tool, u can borrow this tool from Kragen and other parts stores like them, as how it works, it can be a little hard to set it up if u have never used this tool before.
