Do I have to remove the radiator in order to replace the power steering pump on my old Ford truck?

I would avoid that entire dilemma by just taking out the whole ps pump and replacing the pulley then, seems like a lot of work but it's worth it cuz the radiator removal is way more involved and more likely to cause problems with antifreeze leaks, also you probably only have to tilt the PS pump to get the pulley off so I would not disconnect the power steering hoses until I absolutely had to

2004 ford f250 powerstroke. brake pedal is hard to press at first then goes straight to the floor also power steering quit working at the same time.

Hmm.. Low fluid in the power steering pump, broken belt driving the power steering pump, failed component causing loss of power steering fluid, failed power steering pump.

Check for a broken belt first, check the oil in the pump, look for leakage under the truck.

If the pump is low on fluid you want to put about half the amount in that you're going to need and then start the truck and turn the wheel slowly from stop to stop, each way- spend about ten seconds going from one stop to the other. This will allow any air in the system to be purged out in a controlled fashion, it can really spray if you get a big, compressed bubble of air in the system and release it quickly. Shut the truck off and top the steering pump up, check for leaks.

Replace power steering pump

The procedure is as follows:--- 1) Locate the power steering pump on the driver's side of the motor, which is mounted in front of the engine, near the top.2) You will see a fill spout coming out of the pump with a cap on it that says "power steering fluid."
3) Remove the negative battery cable from the battery
4) Remove the cap from the power steering pump,allow the fluid to drain into the pan.
5) Loosen the bolts that hold the power steering pump to the engine block with a socket wrench. Once the pump is loose, remove the belt from the pulley on the power steering pump. Remove the pump from the engine compartment.
6) Insert new power steering pump in reverse.
7) Reattach the power steering hoses and verify they are secure. Fill the new power steering pump with fluid to the full line shown on the dipstick on the back of the cap for your power steering pump. Place the cap back on the power steering pump.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

I have a 1993 F-250 4x4 speedo stopped working and power steering is making noise (fluid level is good)

Hi I just thought you might like to know that the VSS sensor(vehical speed sensor) on a 93 f250 is actually on the top center of the rear differential. It is basically a proximity type sensor not the old school gear and cable. It will take a 1/2" or 13mm wrench I believe to remove the single bolt holding it in and the it pulls out. I think they are around 25 bucks so it's cheap enough to fix the speed sensor.

I changed powersteering cooler on a 2000 f250. lost alot of the fluid. it seems like air got in the abs system. The abs light is on and when you push on the pedal, you can here the powersteering making...

Hello hummelsautob.
Changing the power steering cooler can't allow air into the brake system. Two different fluid systems.
Your F250 has it's brake assist powered by the power steering pump.
Instead of using a vacuum assist it uses the hydraulic power from the pump.
When refilling your pump you have gotten air mixed in with the fluid. This turns it into a consistency something like whipped cream.
When in this state it isn't effective. Let it sit for a couple hours and let the air bubble out of the fluid. Recheck your level after this as it will drop.
This will make your brakes feel normal again.
Just a note on adding fluid to an empty power steering pump.
Add fluid to the reservoir but not to the top, turn the steering wheel back and forth slowly with the engine off. This will keep the fluid from foaming.

Power steering

Try filling the P/S pump resevour and slightly turning the steering wheel side to side just enough to activate the P/S pump. Remove the return line from the pump and keep turning the wheel until you have a really good flow out. Be sure to keep adding P/S fluid while you're doing this. If it's still hard to steer, the pump bearings are now bad. Time to replace it.
