Question about 1995 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Power Steering pump replacement

I mistakenly replaced the power steering pump on my 95 Buick LeSabre (turned out the harmonic balancer was bad) and now I think there is air in the system. The power steering works ~80% of the time. I've tried to bleed the system by lifting the front end and running the wheels to the right and left. Any suggestions?

The problem you have is the Harmonic Balancer. When it goes, the drive belt slides. There is a way to check it using a chalk mark on the balancer. Drive and the chalk line will be broken. Means you need a new Harmonic Balancer.

95 buick lesabre...making knocking sound, friend said its the pully, hes changing it tomorrow. Do I need a whole new power steering pump?

I don't know what your vehicles problems are

What is knocking? Not a steering pump!

You change the entire pump, not the pulley

I would get a second opinion

Serpentine belt route

There should be a sticker showing the routing on the radiator. But if not, it is like this, left to right.

Over the power steering pump.
Under the tensioner wheel.
Over the alternator.
Around the AC
Over the water pump
Under the harmonic balancer on the drive shaft.
Back up to the power steering pump.

I hope I haven't forgotten anything.

Power steering

Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.
