The air pump is designed to pump cold air into the exhaust system for the first few minutes to heat up the exhaust gas so it can burn the raw fuel in the exhaust. after that it only free wheeling. by pass it you will pollute the air more but it does not affect the drivabillity.

I have a 1989 chevy pickup can not afford power steering pump can i bypass pulley with smaller serpetine belt


I is not advisable for a number of reasons. The steering will be a lot harder than even a vehicle without power steering which is a safety issue. The steering gear relies on the oil circulating through it for lubrication, so you would be putting undue stress and wear on the steering box.
By the time you spend good money for a smaller belt and a lot of time trying to make it work, you could get a used pump from a pull it yourself junkyard.

How much is the car worth? (Blue book value) How many miles are on the engine? I say if the vehicle is costing more than it is worth then get rid of it. But that is just in my opinion. New head? as in head gasket? headers?

I have a 1989 chevy silverado 4x4 with a 350, it ran great for ever until now. It starts up, runs rough for a few seconds then just quits, it will do this 10 times in a row then start just fine and run...


Did the problem start when the fuel pump was replaced? It could be some kind of obstruction in the fuel line or a fuel filter acting up - needing replaced, or the filter on the fuel pump somehow didn't get installed correctly. Spend $20 and get a Haynes Repair Manual from Auto Zone to show you step by step instructions with pictures how to troubleshoot just about anything for your make and model.
