Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla

97 corolla power steering pump 2 vacuum(?) hoses / tubes

Just replaced the starter on 97 corolla and in the process discovered what appear to be 2 vacuum hoses coming off the power steering pump hanging loose. One had a 90 degree bend at the end and a clip on it, the other was a little bigger in diameter and did not have a clip or bend, they were taped side by side. I looked all over the engine compartment and only found what I can only describe as a 3 inch length of rubber hose coming out of the fire wall near below the power steering pump. The car runs, and the steering is fine - any idea where these hoses/tubes should be attached or to what?

Sound like your power steering pump is going bad? Not necessarily...


I had a customer that told me their power steering pump was going out. They described the typical power steering whine and difficulty steering. When I went to verify the complaint, I discovered that it didn't whine or have trouble right away. It took a minute or two to actually appear. I had to do some research and what I discovered was that, while a typical vehicle would have the return hose connect directly to the bottom of the reservoir, in the volvo it connects near the top. Inside the reservoir, to keep the fluid from becoming aerated, there is a small, plastic, "L" shaped tube that connects to the p/s return on the INSIDE of the reservoir. In the case of the vehicle I was working on, this tube had popped off causing the fluid to become severely aerated. The air would enter the system (after developing from running for a short bit) causing it to sound like it had a bad pump.

So, if you suspect that the power steering pump is bad, check the fluid level first (as you always should) and examine the condition of it right after running it. The cap might be pressurized and pop off, which is a very good indication of the problem I'm speaking of. The fluid may pour out as well. In any case, if it's foamy, though otherwise at least filled to the minimum line, look inside the reservoir towards the engine side of it where the return line enters to see if you see either a black plastic tube running to the bottom or a beveled, metal tube that has nothing connected. If you check and see the latter, fish around in the reservoir for the plastic tube. You should find it and can likely pop it back on to the return tube. Bleed the system as you normally would and you should find that the problem goes away. Hope that helps!

Replace the fan belt tensioner on a 2000 ford focus


The pulley wheel bearing on the auxiliary drive belt tensioner, which does not come as a separate part from ford, was showing signs of wear so I decided to replace the tensioner.

It's not a simple "whip the old one out" and "stick another one in" as the information in my Haynes manual suggests. In fact the information in my Haynes Service and Repair Manual - Ford Focus 1998 to 2001 (S to Y reg) Petrol and Diesel.

Also, looking under the car it appeared that the Power Steering Pump is bolted onto, or on top of, the tensioner which means the power steering pump may have to come off in order to remove the tensioner. Not so simple a job as the Haynes manual describes.

Investigation Work:

I have discovered there are three, 15mm nuts (Torqued to 48Nm) securing the Tensioner, two below the power steering pump and one above, identifiable by three protruding studs with T40 torx ends. An E8 torx spanner would be necessary if it were proposed to remove these studs.
In addition, I have also discovered that the power steering pump, secured with four, 10mm bolts, is bolted directly on top of the tensioner, piggy back style (There are four bolt holes in the tensioner body for mounting the power steering pump). So in order to remove the tensioner, it is also necessary to remove (and drain) the power steering pump. An alternative method of removing the tensioner might be to unbolt the pump (without draining) and move it to one side out the way while the tensioner is being removed.

Creating More Workspace:

It is necessary to remove the CAC to inlet manifold pipe (drivers side) i.e. the wide, black pipe bolted to the top of the engine, to gain access to the P.S. pump and move the Engine Coolant Resevoir to one side.
Also, to make the process easier and create additional space, it may be helpful to remove the following additional items from the car:
  • fuel filter (and plastic retaining clip).
  • oil filter (to make access easier to the nuts bolts and pipes from below the car)
  • the EGR cooler connection pipe (optional).
Essential Items:

  • 15mm Deep, Hex Socket and large 15mm Ring Spanner - tensioner mounting nuts
  • E8 Torx Spanner for removing 3 studs with T40 Torx ends (method 2 only)
  • 18mm (or 3/8W, 7/16BS) Crowfoot wrench for removing union nut on HP pipe power steering pump. (method 1 only)
  • 10mm ring or combination spanners, long and short (P.S. Pump).
  • 10mm, hex socket ( narrower 3/8" drive preferred) - power steering pump bolts (Methods 1 and 2)
  • Hose Clamp (clamping bottom hose power steering pump)
  • Teflon seal / o-ring for union on HP Line, Power Steering Pump or new union (See Notes 2 & 3)
Teflon O-ring:

Here is a general description of the "external" O-ring on the Power Steering Pump HP union. Someone may be able to find a supplier for the o-rings on the Internet Note that the "internal" black, rubber o-ring is also an integral part of the replacement union.
  • Colour: White
  • Material: Teflon (PTFE)
  • Cross Sectional Area: 1mm x 1mm (square)
  • Outside Diameter .......... 16.5mm
  • Inside Diameter .............14.5mm
Note that sizes are approximate as the o-ring may have expanded slightly as I was removing it from the union. The diameter of the groove the o-ring sits in is 14mm.

How do i change power steering hose ?


are we to guess which hose?
the fsm covers that, you know the factory service manual.
alldata.com or ? a real one.
same way as the 93 corolla, made same day. same plant.

fsm quote: for pump, because a hose is same and covered. here.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air cleaner.
  2. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
  3. Loosen the power steering hose retaining clip and remove the return hose from the power steering pump.
  4. Remove the pressure hose from the pump using a injection line wrench J-29698 or equivalent.
  5. Remove the upper mounting bolt from the pump.
  6. Remove the vacuum hoses from the power steering switch. Remove the 3 bolts retaining the pump bracket mount and the 2 from the engine block and the one from the engine mount.
  7. Remove the lower mounting bolt and the power steering pump from the vehicle.
  8. Installation is the reverse order of the removal procedure. Torque the power steering pump mounting brackets to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm). Connect the pressure hose to the power steering pump union bolt and torque it to 32 ft. lbs. (44 Nm). Adjust the belt tension and bleed the system.


the tool, in mech, jargon is a crow foot.
sold in all tool stores ,worth salt.

How to change 97 hyundi exel manual steering to power steering


Not economical to do this. But you need a whole new front end and the power steering pump and the brackets. Given the age of the vehicle, it may be impossible to locate OEM parts. Aftermarket is 175 to 250 for the rack and pinion, 20 for the mounts for it, 200 for hoses and tubing, 150 for the pump
