Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Bravada
Hi, the power steering pump, on the driver side of the engine, is driven by the serpentine belt. The pulley for power steering, is fairly large, the pulley is pressed on the power steering shaft with a special tool. It is also removed from this shaft with a similar tool. The shaft that holds the pulley, has a tendancy to fracture, resulting in what looks like no problem, but in fact, the pulley is turning, and nothing is happening. The best way to see if the shaft is broken, is ( with the engine off ), try prying out on the pulley, with a large screwdriver, or a prybar. If the pulley comes out of the pump, and actually slides toward the radiator, the shaft is broken, and you will need a new pump. Good luck...Coop
