How do I remove the pulley on the power steering pump

For a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue; how do I remove the pulley on the power steering pump? What tool do I purchase as the standard puller will not work. There are no grooves on the pulley, nor are there any holes in the pulley to remove the pump. I'm tempted to force it off with some large screw drivers.

    The 2000 Oldsmobile intrigue does not have the standard rings on the pulley. There is also very little space in there. Removing the fuse block in there may help with that though. So both of the video's you posted are of no help. Sorry, but thanks. I need someone that have actually done the same car as I have. The standard kits do not seem to fly for this application. I'm going to get a tiny mirror though, and see if there is a double set of threads. That's the only thing I can think of that may be the solution. If both the shaft and pulley have threads. We'll see...

    Umm.. Yea, I know what a power steering pump looks like. I've rebuilt a dozen motors.. I've changed the pressure line to the power steering pump 2 times. The picture you posted is the right engine, but again, the pulley I have does not have that ring around the center that something can grab onto. The picture you posted does have a ring. In my case there is a very small welded ring, but nothing can grab onto it. The pulley must come off before the pump can. So when I can find a mirror I'm hoping that there are 2 different sets of threads inside the hole in the shaft/pulley.. This pulley may be able to do it..

  • bar376 Jul 29, 2010

    There is no metal fatigue in the area around where the flange should be. Just a tiny thin weld line where when it was made was attached. As in the center of the pulley to the outer pulley area. The pump that is on there is toast anyways, I have a new one.. Just need to get this old POS off.. I'm to the point I don't care about the core, and may just order another pulley as well, and I'll tear it off however I can. But I need to stop sitting at my computer, and go outside.

  • bar376 Jul 29, 2010

    So.. Found the problem to my frustrations.. That idiot that installed the engine put the pulley on backwards. I'll take pictures, and post em later today. I paid a shop to install the engine instead of doing it myself. Figured a pro.. Welp.. learned my lesson their. Already spent over $1000 fixing things they messed up from a bad computer ground to a broken radiator to a broken coil pack to this pulley..

    My NAPA pro link shows a taperd smooth shaft so it has to be pulled off.

    This is a picture of your motor and it is most definetly a press on pulley. Are you sure you are talking about the steering pump ?

    Is it possible that the rib has been broken off ? I have done just about every make and model over the course of 12 years as a GM tech .. If someone broke the flange off the only way you will get it is to heat it and pry it off... The problem being the pump seals will probably be finished from the heat..

How to remove my power steering pump

hope this one help
This instructable is designed into four main parts. Here's the outline:

1) Gather the materials
-- Instructable step 1 - This includes tools, a new pump, fluids, etc.
2) Remove the leaking pump
-- Instructable step 2 - Drain the Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 3 - Remove accessories from Power Steering system
-- Instructable step 4 - Remove the pulley and bolts
-- Instructable step 5 - Remove power steering pump
3) Install the new pump
-- Instructable step 6 - Place the new power steering pump
-- Instructable step 7 - Press on the power steering pump pulley
-- Instructable step 8 - Align the pulley and attach the belts
-- Instructable step 9 - Flush and fill the power steering system
4) Cleanup
-- Instructable step 10 - Cleanup

You'll need some tools to complete this task. Before you start, gather the necessary equipment -- you will not be able to use the car once you start the replacement! It is always a good idea to have a friend on call, or a second car available.

Equipment list:

  • Power Steering pump (to replace defective pump)
  • Two (2) quarts power steering fluid or appropriate ATF (to flush and fill). More than 2 quarts if flushing the rack is desired.
  • Power Steering Pulley Puller set (to remove and attach the pulley). Some auto parts stores will loan the tool sets.
  • Socket set.
  • Open end wrench set (for use with puller set).
  • Leverage pipe or extension bar (in case the pulley is hardened on the spindle).
  • Drain pan (to drain & flush power steering system).
  • Wheel bearing grease for sliding pulley on the pump hub.
  • 2' wood 1x2 for assistance with aligning the pulleys. Any straight tool will work fine -- a level, metal rod, wood, whatever.

I'm trying to remove the crankshaft pully off of a 2000 Oldsmobile intrigue. I was able to remove the center bolt bolt the the pully doesn't have any holes to use a puller with how can I take it...

Attach the arms of the crankshaft pulley removal tool over the pulley and tighten the tool to the pulley using the tool's supplied bolts. Continue to tighten the tool using the bolts until the crankshaft pulley is pulled off the crankshaft. auto zone rents out tools for the job.

Removing the steering pump pulley

Don't use a standard bearing puller it doesn't work and may damage the pulley. I went to a local parts store "Salvo" and they had a Ford Power Steering Pump Pulley puller. It works. It seems like you have to put as so much force into it that something would break, but no, it just starts to come off, worth all of the 17.00 I put into it.
