COULD BE A SIMPLE CLOG, AND THERE WERE SOME ISSUES WITH THE PLASTIC NIPPLE WHERE THE HOSE CONNECTS TO THE PUMP CRACKING OR EXPLODING IN SOME INSTANCES. IF YOU HEAR A WHINE OR FEEL VIBRATION THAT MATCHES THE SOUNDS WHILE TURNING YOUR PUMP MIGHT BE BAD, OR POSSIBLE THAT ANOTHER PULLEY BEARING IS BAD. REPLACE PUMP AND IM GUESSING YOULL HAVE YOUR TAHOE BACK THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

How do i change the oil pump on 2002 chevy tahoe 4.8


I have not been under a Tahoe, but you have to pull the oil pan and that may be a real job, depending on the steering mechanism. I would suggest that you obtain, purchase a haynes or chiltons manuel and it will give you complete details on how to complete your project. Most auto supply stores have them, but if you are not in a big hurry they can be purchased from ebay for a savings. Good Luck.

I loss power steering, Its hard to turn either direction, but i am still able to drive. What could be the issues,, 2002 Chevy Tahoe


Did you hear a loud grumbly noise before this happened? That would indicate a fluid leak from the power steering. Check the fluid first. Top it off to proper level and try again.

Check for goopy and oily areas under the reservoir and around the hoses to the rack - that would indicate there's a leak and probably suggest where it is.

2001 chevy tahoe vacum hoeses for power steering


Hello! There are power steering fluid in/out hoses but no vacuum lines...It sounds as if the pump needs to be bled of air or the belt is loose...Belt should move about 1/2 to 3/4"...Bleeding is as follows...
Guru...saailer

    ImportantPower steering fluid level must be maintained throughout bleed procedure.
  1. Fill pump reservoir with fluid to minimum system level, FULL COLD level, or middle of hash mark on cap stick fluid level indicator.
  2. ImportantWith hydro-boost only, the oil level will appear falsely high if the hydro-boost accumulator is not fully charged. Do not apply the brake pedal with the engine OFF. This will discharge the hydro-boost accumulator.
  3. If equipped with hydro-boost, fully charge the hydro-boost accumulator using the following procedure:
  4. 2.1. Start the engine.2.2. Firmly apply the brake pedal 10-15 times.2.3. Turn the engine OFF.
  5. Raise the vehicle until the front wheels are off the ground. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.
  6. Key on engine OFF, turn the steering wheel from stop to stop 12 times.
  7. Vehicles equipped with hydro-boost systems or longer length power steering hoses may require turns up to 15 to 20 stop to stops.
  8. Verify power steering fluid level per operating specification. Refer to Checking and Adding Power Steering Fluid .
  9. Start the engine. Rotate steering wheel from left to right. Check for sign of cavitation or fluid aeration (pump noise/whining).
  10. Verify the fluid level. Repeat the bleed procedure if necessary.

Power steering hard and brakes are very weak


It would appear that your vehicle has a Hydroboost system (many Chevys do), which uses hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump to also boost the brakes. Check your power steer fluid level. If it is OK, then either you have air in the system, or the pump is failing. Also check all the hoses and pipes between the pump and brake master cylinder for leakage.

I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. for the past 6 months


without hearing exact noise it is hard to diagnose. these vehicles had a normal cold start knocking noise due to the low friction rings used allowed piston some extra movement. when carbon builds up on pistons it gets worse will go away after about a minute running. it does not affect life of engine or performance. i think this may be noise you hear. or possible it is a lifter leaking down and taking a while to pump up

2002 tahoe enginge will turn over, however, the wheel will not turn


most likely the power steering pump shaft has broken. its hard to detect this becuase the pully on the power steering pump still turns with the serpentine belt.

Loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently


Dealer, but did you check the Power steering fluid level??or any leaks. There are two hose that connect to the gear box from the power steering pump. if the pump is low on fluid you lose your power steering, if the hose has a leak or it blew and lost the power steering fluid then you lost your power steering again. 
Check the fluid level to the power steering pump and any leaks or broken hose to the gear box.
Keep me posted, be glad to help and good luck.

Steering problem


check your power steering belt. it may have broke or slipped off the pulley. if it seems ok check your fluid level. if it is still at normal operating level for hot or cold then your power steering pump may have just seized up and you may have to replace it.
