Question about Oldsmobile Regency
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
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.
