Look for a belt driven pump that has a cap on it that has tubing that leads to the steering gear or rack and pinion.

Replaced powersteering hose and now the truck wont turn over


If you filled the power steering reservoir with the proper fluid (usually ATF), you should let the engine run for a while and try to turn the steering wheel a bit in either direction.
The wheels will hop a bit, you will feel like the power steering isn't working for a while, then it'll start working again and so on. Keep turning the wheel lock to lock until it works smoothly.
Keep an eye on the fluid level as you may need to refill the reservoir a couple of times as the fluid will be distributed in the power steering system.
Observe any strange sounds coming from the power steering pump and make sure not to keep the steering wheel turned to the limit as it may hurt the pump.

What can cause the steering wheel to be hard to trun


The most common cause of a steering wheel being hard to turn is an issue with the power steering system. Often, the power steering fluid is low or almost out and simply needs to be refilled in order for it to work properly. If the belt is broken in the power steering system, this can also cause problems with the steering system, and there could also be an issue with the power steering pump. The first thing to check would be the fluid level and evaluate further, if needed.

Black power steering fluid


Power steering fluid has not been changed in eons, i suggest draining the fluid, refilling with a cheap fresh fluid, then bleed the system by turning the wheels from lock to lock a few times with the cap of the steering fluid master cylinder off, then drain the system again & refill with good quality power steering fluid - it should be pink & smell sweet, - the power steering fluid that is!!

My engine light just came on this morning but I am having a very hard time turning the steering wheel and it is making a strange sound when I try to turn the wheel.


Hi hope I can help.
First check the power steering pump fluid.
Also check your belt to the power steering. make sure it is not slipping.
After checking both of these and you still have a problem .
you will have to replace your power steering pump.
Hope this helps FixYa

When turning steering wheel I have squeaking sounds coming from inside rubber boots that cover rods that steer front wheels and the power steering fluid has a burnt smell. ( I don't know the name of these...


This is the steering rack. If it's not leaking fluid out of the bellows more than likely the fluid needs to be changed.
This can be done by removing the 2 lines from the pump that attach to the rack draining the fluid, then reconnect the lines and refill with fresh power steering fluid.
When draining make sure to take the cap/dipstick off of the pump.

Have a 1996 Grand am with a 3.1 and going to replace the rack & pinion in it.She has power streering fuild on the drivers side floor and it appears the seal may have blow out. My ? has anyone done this...


Removal of the rack and pinion is not too difficult.

Place the car on chassis stands on flat hard standing or in a garage.
Remove the front wheels.
Centre the steering and tie the steering wheel in place.
Remove the tie rod ends. You can either buy a tool to do this but a simple way it to loosen the nut without removing it and giving the steering knuckle a sharp crack with a hammer. This should loosen the tie rod end and the nut can be fully removed.
Loosen the fitting holding the rack to the steering wheel.
Remove the pipes to the steering fluid reservoir.
Remove the brackets holding the rack to the body.
You can now pull it out.

Fitting the new one is the reversal. However, before you connect it to the steering wheel, you need to make sure it is in the centre position.
Refill the steering fluid, start the engine and swing the steering from left to right to remove air. Put your wheels back on, Make sure that your wheels ar both pointing in a straight line.
Drive carefully to the nearest alignment centre because you alignment will be out and you will wear your tyres out in triple speed and your car might handle poorly until it has been aligned properly..
