Sounds like the power steering pump. Usually water pump will leak from its weep hole if its going out. Look for coolant leakage around bottom of water pump.

How much shaft end play is permissible in a 1994 ford taurus power steering pump? my serpentine belts keeps running off. the only thing that has any discernible end play is the power steering pump.

Next to none, that you should be able to feel

Suspect that the crank shaft damper pulley is worn out

You won't see misalignment but it is there

May have to lower sub frame on one side to get it off

Serpentine belt route

ok I do not know what the cofigure is on your jeep but let me explain how it works and then you may be able to put it on. First look at the pulleys and see witch ones are smooth and witch ones have lines. smooth pulleys match to the smooth side of the belt ridgid side matches with ridgid side of belt. next I will tell you a rule to most serentine belts. Your crankshaft pully is the main drive so the belt will rap around almost 3/4ths the way around the pulley. All driven pulleys witch are the ones the run the water pump, altenator, compresor, and power steering rap around 3/5ths around the pulleys then you have the tentioner witch will apply pressure down on the belt so make shure the belt is under the pressure side. You can put a 3/8th ratchet in the tentioner to move it. if you still have pulleys that I have not covered they are their to complete the right amount of rap on the driven pulleys. The main thing to look at is if its smooth then put the smooth side of the belt on that pulley. If this did not help just coment back and I can get the book out tommorrow when I go to the shop and email you a copy of the diagram

When water hits belt - it throws it off!

check all the bearing in all of the acc. power steering pump water pump idler pully a/c compressor etc. if all good no nise and they spinn freely check the alinment of all the puilly mak so they all line on together. sometimes the power steering pully get worn inside the pump and allow it to move back and forth too much some play is normal. also the power steering pully trys to walk off the shaft and make the belt track off the other pullys .

your waterpump is belt driven....if your belt is on correctly and the pump is still good it will work. the belt spins the pully, the pulley spins the shaft, and the shaft spins the impeller. the impeller "pumps" the water through the motor. I would loosen the belt and see how much play there is in the shaft of the pump. the old grab and wiggle approach. if it moves a lot then it needs replacing.

Where is the water pump located on a 1999 mitsubishi mirage?

The best bet is is for you to buy a Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20.

I am not familar with your specific car/ngine but I am familar with Lits in general. I believe your engine is tranvese mounted which means the fan belts are located on one end of the engine (left or right). The water pump is powered by a fan belt so go to the end with the fan belts. You should have an alternator, power steerring, air conditioning and crank shaft pulley that the belts run on. There should aslo be a pulley for the water pump. use the process of elimination to ID the water pump.

2001 Chevrolet K1500 5.3 engine has a jingling noise around fan

it could be the tensioner .or it could water almost have to take off belt and spin by hand the individual pulleys. also wile fan is still on and truck is off take the fan see if it moves back and fourth front to back it should have no play in it .because it is attached to the water pump shaft.
