Time out! is the hose really leaking or is it the radiator itself? no sense replacing hoses to stop a radiator leak. if it is a hose, there is an upper and a lower. your power steering could be leaking at the rack, or a hose (there are 2, a pressure hose and a return hose), or the pump, or the fluid resevoir. you must be absolutely sure where it is leaking before you buy parts unless you are filthy rich, and if you are, you can adopt me real cheap

Leaking power steering fluid from both sides of front


You need to check all power steering hoses, hose connections and power steering pump for leaks. It's probably coming from one of these areas.

1991 Chevy Lumina APV I shouldn't have bought the van. The main thing that needs to be replaced is the bow tie on the front... The current problem is that it feels like the power steering is out, it...


Sounds like the coolant is getting on the belt causing it to slip on the pulleys. As with most 20 year old vehicles leaks are common as very few have received the attention they need [ regular service including replacement of hoses and such ]. You can try a stop leak in the cooling system & leave the radiator cap loose on the first detent, but chances yuor friend is right = the waterpump is leaking. If you use just water in the cooling system it will rust up and sediment will plug the smaller ports causing more problems.

How could you tell if the power stearing pump is going out . It leaks p/s flu , could it also be that the hose is damaged?


If the power steering pump is on the way out, usually the steering will become jerky when turning. It may also develop a whine noise in the engine compartment. The fluid will appear foamy as it aerates and mixes with the fluid. Good news power steering pumps rarely fail, unless run out of fluid. It is more likely the pump front pulley seal is leaking (you should see a tract of fluid along the padding in the hood liner). The other possibility is a hose, usually the high pressure hose leaking at a compression fitting (where the rubber meets the steel ends). Check the fluid level and condition. Check the hood liner for traces of leaks, check underneath for drips, or extremely wet areas along the 2 hoses.

Loud roaring from front right side goes away during a left curve then comes back when you straghten up


This is caused by a bad wheel bearing. to locate the right wheel jack the front wheels up and check for the wheel being loose, or with car jacked up in the air with front wheel off the ground put it in drive and see if you can listen for the noise, you may be right with the right front but just double check, good luck, hope this is helpful.

Power steering fluid smell when using defrost??


Do you see any sign of power steering leakage under the hood? The air intake for the ventilation system is right in front of the windshield, and maybe vapors from the engine compartment are mixing in.

The other question is, are you sure it's power steering fluid you're smelling? Coolant/antifreeze has a similar odor. If you think it may be antifreeze, check to see if the carpeting in the front seat area is wet. You may have a heater core leaking, which would allow the coolant into the cabin area.

How to Change a Thermostat in a 1999 Oldsmobile silhouette


Hi to change your thermostat ..disconnect your battery .follow the top rad hose to you motor .where the hose connects to the top of your motor there is a thermostat under neath the thermostat housing remove rad cap ..when cool only ....drain rad ,bottom of your rad there is a bleeder . use a good leak proof container to keep antifreeze from going on the ground ...if you spill any ..make sure you wipe it all up ...it is very poisonous to small animals ect
You will have to gain access to your thermostat ,so remove all things that are in the area where the hose goes too ...the motor .First remove the hose connected to the thermostat housing ..remove thermostat housing ...usually a few bolts ....under neath there is a thermostat ....and a gasket ..once you remove the thermostat ....be sure to put the new one back the same way you took the old one out ....plug the hole with a small rag ....any extra rad fluid spilling on the motor ect ...wipe it up it is corrosive ...to wires ect
Before changing the new thermostat ...use a scraper to clean the area where the gasket sits ,put a small cloth in the whole before you clean to make sure you don't leave any dirt in the hole ...i usually use a shop vac to clean the area after i finish scraping the area ...
buy a good gasket sealant ...new thermostat should come with new gasket ....put new gasket sealant on the gasket so it will not move while trying to install the thermostat housing,be sure to line up the holes in the gasket ...to where the bolts will be installed later . Place new thermostat in then your new gasket ..in the hole .also remember to clean the thermostat housing too ...before reinstalling ....tighten bolts by hand first hand ,use a ratchet....after tightening ....tighten about a half turn ...don't over tighten ,you could break the bolts ,and it's not good to over tighten because of the new gasket also ...put back rad hose to thermostat housing tighten well ,then tighten bleeder on rad ...if you havent changed your antifreexe in some time, buy new antifreeze ..if you are not sure how to mix it ..buy pre mixed antifreeze,fill rad ,connect battery ...start motor ....set heating controls to max ...and blower to the highest setting ,keep filling rad while motor heats up ..it will bubble some ....once you feel the rad is completly filled ...put rad cap on properly ...in your resorvior where you put antifreeze in, fill it to where it should be filled too ..there is usullay a mark to tell how much it can be filled to .check inside your vehicle to see if ther effecient heat comming out your vents .it might take a few days or so for the air to come out of the rad ...ect ....also in a day ..check to see if there are any leaks ...tighten things up more if need be .....
good luck ...let me know how you make out ...
Just to let you know ...you can buy an all season thermostat so you will not have to change it every different season from summer to winter ....

Leaking radiator fluid but not from rad., pink fluid, no hose leaks


A fluid leak that is pink and/or red colored is usually either power steering fluid or transmission fluid. I recommend checking both. You can check the power steering fluid when the car is off. However, the transmission fluid should be checked with the engine warm and idling in neutral. Have someone else step on the brake or use the parking brake and block the wheels while you're measuring the transmission fluid level.
