The usual problem here is that the Power Steering pump driveshaft seal is what fails so you have Power Steering fluid leaking out there. The easiest solution is to replace the Power Steering pump with a re-built one, but in my case I have already taken the pump off, and removed the pulley from it because my plan is to just replace the pump driveshaft seal since I know that the pump itself is fine because it worked perfectly prior to the leaking problem, and I am incredibly cheap. Because replacing only the driveshaft seal requires a higher level of skill, this may not be for the average do-it-youselfer so in that case replacing the entire pump would definitely be much easier but you'll probably still have to remove the pulley from the old pump, and then re-install it on the replacement pump.

A puller is required to remove the pulley, and a simple installation tool will put it on the new pump! This is really not that difficult if you have these tools, which can be rented for a few dollars at some large auto parts stores. A little experience is also helpful. To me, this is not really that difficult a job, but then I've been doing my own work on cars since I was about 15, which is about 30 years. Be sure to clean everything so as to remove all Power Steering fluid from all pulleys and belts, and also be sure use the appropriate new Power Steering fluid for this vehicle when filling the reservoir to the proper cold level, and do not over-tighten belts.

Hope helps.

Well, I had a similar problem with a belt on a 1990 Olds Cutlass Calais that kept slipping until I sprayed it with 'belt dressing.'

I replaced the belt but it still slipped.
I would try that first before replacing the power steering pump itself.
I don't think that changing the bearings in the power steering pump would make a difference.
It's a belt problem.

Where is the cam sensor located on a 1994 olds cutlass cerias

with a 3.1 liter , remove and install directions are remove serpentine belt , remove power steering pump assembly , then remove sensor harness , sensor bolt , remove sensor , so it sounds like behind the power steering pump assembly area if that makes sense . it has to be real close the the cam gear , you should be able to find it .
