Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
How do you remove the pulley holding the power steering pump on
You need to start by getting a chilton or haines manuel, also a 3 prong wheel puller.
The maneuls will tell you what needs to get moved out of your way to get to the pulley. Pulling the pulley is relatively simple, you put the puller on and then use a wrench or rachet and pending on how much room you have. and it will do the work for you. The hard part is getting to the pulley and getting everything out of your way. Sorry I can't be more helpfull but your answer is not an easey one. You have a front wheal drive car with a 6 cylinder in it, and its a tight place.

Lift the hood. Remove the power-steering cap. Use the turkey baster to siphon as much fluid as possible from the power-steering pump reservoir. This is done to lessen the fluid loss when the hoses are removed.
Remove the two pressure hoses from the rear of the power-steering pump, using a wrench and common screwdriver. The high-pressure hose is threaded into the back of the pump while the lower-pressure hose is held on with a clamp.
Loosen the belt tensioner by using a wrench to move the tensioner away from the belt and removing the belt.
Place the power-steering pulley extractor tool on the nose of the pulley. The tool has two half shells that clamp around the lip on the nose of the pulley and around the lip of the tool. Thread the tool in until the shells fit on both the pulley and the tool lip. Install the circular metal band to keep the shells in place. Hold the threaded head of the tool with a wrench. With another appropriately sized wrench, turn the large nut above the shells counterclockwise to pull the pulley off.
Remove the bolts securing the pump to the support bracket. Remove the pump.
Install the new pump. Insert the securing bolts and tighten. Install the pulley by holding the pulley on the shaft while threading the extractor tool into the center hole of the shaft, with the shells removed. Hold the head of the threaded shaft with one wrench and turn the large nut clockwise with another wrench to push the pulley on the power-steering pump shaft.
Install the serpentine belt by pushing the tensioner away from the belt while wrapping the belt around the pulleys. Allow the tensioner to press on the belt, causing tension.
Install the two power-steering hoses. Fill the power-steering pump reservoir with power-steering fluid. Start the truck and turn the steering wheel lock-to-lock, left and right several times to bleed all the air from the system. Check the fluid one more time.

On models equipped with a remote fluid reservoir, disconnect and plug the hose(s) in order to prevent system contamination or excessive fluid loss.
When installing the puller tool onto the power steering pump pulley, be sure that the pilot bolt bottoms in the pump shaft by turning the head of the pilot bolt.
