You cannot drive this car without a functioning power steering as it would be almost impossible to steer. Therefore you cannot bypass the pump. Replace the defective P/S pump.

How to bypass power sterring pump on 94 camaro v6


You may not be able to.

My best guess is to head to a NAPA or other auto part store and try to find an engine like yours that came without ps.

At the very least you could try some camaro fourm.

Bypass power steering


Attempting to drive a car designed for power steering without the pump will increase the effort at the wheel so you may not be able to steer it.
Go to a junkyard and buy a used pump, cost you less.

I was wondering if i can bypass the powersteering pump with a different serprntine belt


It's possible. It will be difficult to steer. Use a piece of rope to wrap around all tne componants just like the belt would except for the ps unit and look for a belt as long as the rope

Fig. 7: Typical power steering pump hose routing-1996 shown


The following procedure requires the use of the GM Puller tool No. J-29785-A (1985-92), Puller J-25034-B (1993-96) or equivalent, and the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety.
  2. For 1996 vehicles, remove the air cleaner assembly for access.
  3. For 1993-96 vehicles, remove the hood latch and the upper fan shroud.
  4. Release tension and remove the drive belt.
  5. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
  6. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts, then reposition the pump as necessary for access to the hoses.
  7. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  8. Remove the hoses from the power steering pump and drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
WARNING Be sure to cap all openings in the pump hydraulic system to prevent excessive fluid spillage and the possibility of system contamination.
  1. Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the pump to the vehicle, then uncap and connect the pump hoses.
  2. Install the steering pump to the retaining bracket, then secure using the retaining bolts. Tighten the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). For 1996 vehicles, tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
On early-model vehicles where the drive belt is tensioned by pivoting the power steering pump assembly, do NOT fully tighten the mounting bolts at this time, since you will just have to loosen them again for belt installation and adjustment.
  1. Install the pump pulley using the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent. Press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump.
  2. Hand-tighten the pivot bolt, the adjusting bolt and the washer.
  3. Install the drive belt. On early-model vehicles so equipped, properly adjust the belt tension. For details on belt installation and tension adjustment.
  4. For 1993-96 vehicles install the upper fan shroud and the hood latch assembly.
  5. For 1996 vehicles, install the air cleaner assembly.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Refill the power steering reservoir and bleed the power steering system.
  8. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
  9. Road test the vehicle, then check and top-off the power steering fluid.

hope this help (remember rated this post) Good luck.

On a 2001 saab 93 turbo can can you bypass the ac compressor or is there a bypass pulley


You can bypass both the AC compressor and the middle serpentine idler pulley with a 6PK1790. The middle pulley is bypassed by running the belt straight line from the upper rear serpentine idler straight to the power steering pulley, then over the water pump (the smooth pulley powered by the back side of the belt) and down to the engine drive pulley (harmonic balancer), bypassing the AC compressor) This works fine. On 9.5 models, the same basic idea, but a slightly different sized belt.
