Where is the power steering pump 97 geo tracker

97 geo tracker is not equipped with power steering. they where made so light that they just have steering assist which doesn't require power steering fluid or anything else. you will notice that when vehicle is parked or at slow speeds steering wheel is hard to turn. this is perfectly normal its just not power steering.

Tight steering

hi from the uk from the symptoms you clearly describe ? you aare correct in your assumption that fault is'nt p/steer may i suggest you check the universal joint on the lower end of the steering column it is accessable from under the bonnet or best from underneath car this joint has no lubrication facility ie grease nipple and being hidden away is often forgotten it is a simple enough job to change it and part is not that expensive it is a matter of removing the two nuts+bolts on each end and use wd40 b4 you start it helps loosen bolts/joint leave wheels in ahead position but keep steering lock off so you can manuver the joint off it is usually splined or has a flat mating on bothe steering rack and column shafts ONCE THIS JOUNT SEIZES DO NOT TRY FREEING IT TO REFIT AS IT IS NOT SAFE fit replacement only then i suggest you put a dollop of greas around joint to prevent seizure in future? hope this helps best wishes from uk

Tight steering

wrong it can be .... the pump has an impeller in it
at low speeds it might be working fine.. but at higher speeds the impeller is slipping so it is not moving the oil like it should... replace the pump...

Steering system

It very possible that the new power steering pump is defective. I would take it back for a possible warranty issue.

I'm confused about the part where the water pump damaged the power steering pump. The power steering pump doesn't require any cooling from the water pump. The power steering pump only needs the belt to run it properly.
