What bolts do I loosen to tighten the power sterring belt on my 1981 buick reveria


IF you have a serpentine belt it's not a matter of adjusting the power steering belt tension because it's done automatically with a serpentine belt tensioner.
OTOH, if you have a separate V-belt you'll need to loosen the mounting bolt/nut at the bottom of the steering pump and the adjustment bracket then tighten the belt by moving the adjustment nut to tighten the belt.
You might be able to google a video of your particular engine power steering belt adjustment.

If a power steering pump locks up does it have to be replaced?


the power steering pump locking up is the reason ur serpentine belt broke. on front of power steering pump is a pulley which must spin freely. when this pulley locks up, things break...and yes u definitely need a new power steering pump.

My ford focus power steering went out . I opened the hood and the belt on the left side of the engine next to the power steering . Is that the power steering belt ??


They do not stretch that much. That engine uses a serpentine belt. Something has gone bad that caused the belt to come loose. All pulleys must be inspected to diagnose the problem.

How do I change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick LeSabre, 3.8


My friend;
Try this;
  1. Check the belt pulley may have attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  2. Loose the belt pulley attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  3. Normally there are three bolts & or nuts u need to loose to allow u swivel the pulley side way.
  4. Once loose, swivel the pulley side way.
  5. Mostly, you don't have to remove the bolts & or nuts completely.
  6. You may need to remove other serpentine belt to reach the power steering belt.
  7. Removing those other belts work same as the power steering belts or other belts.

Is the serpentine belt and the timing belt the same thing?


Your serpentine belt and timing belt are not the same thing. If your serpentine belt breaks, you will lose your alternator, your cooling system, air conditioning, and your power steering. In turn, it will leave you stranded in a very short period of time.

Both Serpentine belts


The power steering pump will have a tensioner you need to loosen. Then for the other belt. There is a tensioner located on the pass side. You can see it if you look down the pass side of the engine.

When my serpentine belt broke three times the problem was diagnosed as the power steering pump. Why wasn't this diagnosed when the tensioner was replaced. I am now replacing the power steering pump and...


That is a valid question, but you should ask the shop that worked on it. Also do you know that the power steering pump will cure the problem? This remains to be seen....You can check one thing though...Look at the belt/pulley arrangement from the side. any pulley that is not exactly in line with all others, and any wobbling pulley is suspect. Serpentine belts are far less forgiving of these items than were "v" belts.
Good luck
