SOURCE: 1987 Chevy G20 van replace power steering pump

Does your van have the serpentine belt? If so maybe I can help, I replaced the Power steering pump on my 90 G20 a couple of weeks ago. The trick is that you need to pull the pump pulley which is pressed on to access the mounting bolts which attach the pump to the engine. Harbor Freight tools sells a great tool designed for this job for $20.00. Once you have the correct tools, remove the serpentine drive belt. You may also need to remove the fan shroud. the pump shaft looks like it has an allen socket in the center, but this is for use in the manufacturing process, and will not come out. Place the puller tool on the pulley following tthe instruction that come with the tool, and remove the pulley. loosen, but do not remove the nut on the high pressure hose connection. use a pair of **** pliers to cut and remove the crimp clamp on the low pressure hose. If your pump has the remote reservour loosen the clamp on the reservour hose also. Remove the three mounting bolts, place a large pan under the pump to catch drips, and remove the prevously loosened hoses. there will be fluid leaking all over and the pump should come free, There are two types of replacement pump sold. With and without reservour. This reservour is a metal cover that fits over the back of the pump, and should not be confused with the reomte revervour found on some newer models which is next to the battery. This reservour is held in place be two throught the pump bolts which are removed at the back of the pump. If your new pump has a reservour you will probably still need to remove these bolts and put them in the replacement pump as most are shiped without these bolts. If you replacement pump comes without a reservour pull the bolts, the reservour should pull off of the old pump and slide onto the new one. check the o rings and replace the through the pump bolts. Installation is the reverse of removal execpt that 1/2" hose clamps replace the crimp clamps on the low pressure hose, and the puller tool is set up differently to replace the pulley. Finally if you don't flush contaminants out of the system your repair will last maybe a week. www.cardone.com has a great article about power steering flushing, read it before you start Good luck.

SOURCE: Power steering whine

I don't know if this will work, but if it is the same whinning sound that I have heard, all it takes is to buy some belt dressing and spray on the belts and pullys.

Most likely is fuel filter; if it does it with a new fuel filter check fuel pressure at engine at speed it looses power--maybe the fuel pump is laying down.

2000. Why is steering wheel difficult to turn?


Can depends if pulley pump was installed incorrectly or you have a bad rack. The best way to check if your pump is actually pumping is by crimping the return line with pliers careful not to cut it and listen for whine if no whine is heard pump is defective if whine is heard your rack and pinion is bad

Steering


No

The whine is the steering pump

The cause is most likely a failing steering
rack & the added pressure shows up in pump noise

I would flush the power steering fluid first
Use the factory recommended fluid
The use about 8 oz of LUBEGARD for power steering

It is a US product, out of Washington State
The company has a web site
International Lubricants or just type Lubegard
for transmissions
Get the regular additive,they make a purple bottle
just for hondas also

Some dealers have a similar product or it could very well
be lubegard in their bottles
