How to i remove power steering pump


I suspect the pump is not leaking but a hose that goes to the pump. Either way this is a difficult job. Almost everything that is on the pump side of the engine must be removed first to get access to the pump and it's hoses. Good Luck.

Turn signal flasher on 1992 pontiac trans sport


The flasher is attached by a clip to the interior panel on the lower right side of your steering wheel. I hope that answers you question. Feedback and ratings are appreciated as well.

My steering stopped working but as long as I wasn't turning right or left the van ran well but then it starting having a knocking sound and now it won't turn over. It isn't out of oil. Help!


Check your serpentine belt in the engine compartment. It could have broke which would explain the power steering pump failing and now the battery could be dead since it was not being charged. If it is the belt, once it is replaced you should only need to jump the battery.
