Question about Pontiac Grand Am

Open Question

I have a 1998 pontiac grand am 3100 series v6. I am trying to remove the power steering pump for clearance to change the cam position sensor. I am stuck on the motor mount. I have removed the 5 bolts and the engine moved back as expected, but to get to the power steering mounts it looks like I have to remove the part the motor mount was attached to and it looks like the bolts attaching it are welded in different spots. I have partially rounded one of the bolts, and am completely stuck there until I can remove the motor mount mount I guess lol.

you dont have to take it off. remove the 2 15mm bolts and pry the bracket sideways w/ a prybar. This shortens your time. You most likely have a 90amp alternator so it should be small enough to slide through.

no you have to go thru the holes in the front of the power steering pulley. Usually a ratchet with a deep 13mm socket will do to remove the 2 bolts located at 12 and 6 o'clock then you will be able to move it out of the way

Exactly which pulley is my water pump? (1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 sfi v6)??????????????


The power steering pump is dead center on the top of the motor. If your standing on the passenger side the water pump is the next pulley to the right. The serpentine belt will go over the power steering pulley, under the water pump pulley, and then around the a/c compressor.

Check the power steering fluid, have a helper turn the wheel and look under the hood and see if the power steering pump is making noise, check the P/S belt to make sure it's tight.

Were is the cam sensor lowcaded on a 1996 crande am 3.1 engine


That's a good question, it is kind of hidden below the power steering pump. There are 3 bolts that hold your power steering pump on and they are located in 3 different positions and are accessable through the holes in the pulley (rotating it to access each one at a time of course). Once your power steering pump is removed you will see the camshaft position sensor which is held in with one bolt. Hope this answers your question.
