Question about 1995 Buick LeSabre

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?

If you have power stering oil in it its normal for the pump to be noisy its air that make that noise continue to drive air will come out by itself after a few kilometer it will go away if you have enough oil thanks pierre

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

It sounds like a lifter i was told it was the harmonic balancer by several people i replaced it car stick making ticking noise and picks up speed slow

I am curious why they said harmonic balancer and you replaced it, there is a crank sensor near the harmonic balancer was it rattling or loose they have a tendency to get loose,the harmonic is the big main pulley when that breaks because it is vulcanized then yes it tick and your car looses power.You check sparkplugs for being loose and not being tighten up,check the air filter too,I am sticking with the Harmonic balancer this time remove the drive belt but dont do it too long or it will overheat just for 2 minutes maximum see if the noise goes away. 2 minutes only battery wont charge also

1997 buick lesabre steering locks up & can't turn left & whining

very possible that the pump has failed (seized ) internally so get it checked out at an accredited power steering specialist shop
if it does not produce pressure then the steering will lock or be extremely heavy to turn

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.
