Question about Chevrolet Avalanche

1 Answer

I have a Chevy Avalahnche and I am on vacation in South Florida. Yesterday when I went to turn Right, I had all I could do to turn, it was like the power steering went out. Once I started moving it seemed to be ok, only when I turn right. Left turns are ok. I do not want to go to some rip off repair shop if it is something I can do. I am pretty handy with repairs, just do not want to get in over my head. What do you think this is.

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

I have a 1985 K5 Blazer, I think the fuel pump went out yesterday, I put gas in it Wend. night and when I got home I could smell gas pretty bad. When I went to start it yesterday it just cranked but...


I think you need to get to a mechanic. If you smell gas, then your fuel pump is pumping it out, gas is not getting burned properly and it is being dumped either via a leak or incomplete combustion. You have some type of problem with your intake or combustion system which needs attention.

Ignition / start problem


Check the wire to your starter. Chect the battery connections. Check alternator connections. Clean them all and apply a little grease to each. Not so bad in central FL today either, supposed to be mid 60's.
