Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-02-32-001O (Section 02 - Steering). Condition Some customers may comment on a clunk type noise coming from the front of the vehicle while driving during a turning maneuver.

1. Locate a large area (parking lot) where the vehicle can be turned in a tight circle. 2. Turn the steering wheel to the right and/or left all the way to the steering lock, then off the steering lock a 1/4 turn. 3. Drive the vehicle approximately 5 km/h (3 mph) in a circle, preferably over rough pavement or seams on the road surface. 4. Drive the vehicle straight ahead at idle speed while applying and releasing the brake pedal. Listen/feel the steering wheel for the clunk/noise condition. 5. If a clunk is felt in the steering wheel, the MOST likely cause is the I-shaft - not the steering gear. Continue with the correction. Correction DO THIS - Replace the intermediate shaft DON'T DO THIS - DO NOT lube the intermediate shaft Replace the existing intermediate shaft

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.

How to replace the power steering pump on a 2001 Pontiac Aztec

Welcome to Fixya

here's the procedure on how to replace water pump of your car

  • 1 Turn the belt tensioner pulley counterclockwise on the 3.4L modeal. Use a breaker bar and a socket to rotate the center bolt on the tensioner pulley. If you have a 3.5L engine model, turn the pulley clockwise.

  • 2 Slide the drive belt off the steering pump pulley.
  • 3 Detach the black ground cable from the battery using a wrench.
  • 4 Position a drain pan under the car in the direction of the steering pump hoses.
  • 5 Move any wire brackets near the steering pump out of the way using a wrench or ratchet and socket, if necessary.
  • 6 Disconnect the return hose from the power steering pump by loosening the clamp at the steering pump using a ratchet and socket. Then pull the hose off the pump and let the steering fluid drain into the pan.
  • 7 Detach the pressure hose from the steering pump by unscrewing the retaining nut at the pump using a tube wrench. Let the steering fluid drain on the pan.
  • 8 Unscrew the steering-pump mounting bolts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.
  • 9 Lift the power steering pump off the engine compartment.
  • Install the New Steering Pump
  • 1 Position the new steering pump in place and start the mounting bolts by hand. Then tighten the bolts using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.
  • 2 Attach the pressure hose to the steering pump by starting the retaining nut by hand. Then tighten the nut using the tube wrench.
  • 3 Connect the return hose to the steering pump. Then tighten the clamp using the ratchet and socket.
  • 4 Reinstall any wire brackets you had to remove using a wrench or ratchet and socket.
  • 5 Connect the black ground cable to the battery using a wrench.
  • 6 Install the drive belt by turning the tensioner pulley counterclockwise using the breaker bar and socket. Then slide the belt over the steering pump pulley. If you have the Aztek 3.5L engine, turn the tensioner pulley clockwise.
  • 7 Reinstall any wire brackets you had to remove form near the steering pump using the wrench or ratchet and socket.
  • 8 Connect the black, ground cable to the battery using a wrench.
  • Bleed the Power Steering System
  • 1 Refill the steering fluid reservoir with new steering fluid. Make sure the level reaches the Full Cold mark on the reservoir.
  • 2 Raise the front of the vehicle using a floor jack until the front tires are off the ground. Then support the car on 2 jack stands.
  • 3 Turn the ignition key to the On position but do not start the engine.
  • 4 Turn the steering wheel fully from left to right 15 times.
  • 5 Check the fluid level in the steering reservoir and add if necessary.
  • 6 Lower the vehicle and start the engine. Turn the steering wheel and listen for steering noises. If you hear noises while turning the steering wheel, repeat steps 2 through 5 of the bleeding procedure to get rid of the air in the steering system. Turn off the engine.
