For this p steering pump it's recomended to replace it.
As my experience,repair (o/h) will not solve the problem for long.

attention ! this leakage will damage the alternator (it's located right under this p s pump)

The tension belt keeps coming off of my 1999 Town and Country. First the power steering fluid starts to leak, then it overheats. Now the battery is dead. I have already repaired the tension belt before...


Hi,
I assume you mean you have replaced the serpentine drive belt before? When your belt comes off, it is not operating your water pump and alternator or power steering pump, giving you the overheat and dead battery. Shouldnt make power steering fluid leak though. Does the power steering fluid leak all the time, or just when the belt comes off? If it leaks all the time from the pump area, you could have a bad seal and bearing in the pump causing the pulley to wobble and that makes the belt walk off. First, locate the belt routing diagram on the engine cowl (front of vehicle under the hood) or make a drawing of how the belt is routed for re-assembly use. Loosen belt tension at tensioner and take belt loose from a pulley that is easily accessed. Use your hands to wiggle all your pulleys and feel for excessive play in any of them or the components themselves. (water pump, power steering pump,A/C compressor and alternator.) If component play, you could have loose bolts causing wobble. If pulley play, could be bad bearing in component which would need replaced. Pay special attention to excess movement in the tensioner pulley itself. Also visually check for sideways alignment of pulleys. If pulleys are not aligned correctly, it will make the belt walk off also. That is usually a bracket misaligned or bolt holes in bracket worn out. If all checks good, I would suspect a worn out belt or belt tensioner that is not holding enough / proper tesion on belt allowing it to walk off. It will take you about an hour to check these things, repair costs depend on what you discover as a potential problem,as components can be costly.
Let us know what you find......Thanks, Mike

If the rack is not leaking fluid, and the power steering is operable, there is no reason to replace the rack. If the rack has become loose from the vehicle and is causing a noise, you can tighten the bolts to secure it.

replace the power steering pump, the hoses are an odd size and you have to buy a wrench for it, the transmission you can change the gasket and filter and replace the fluids,, probably the engine is dripping from the rear main bearing seal, this is best left to someone who knows what they are doing.

Considering buying a 94 volvo 940 gl


Hello, it sounds as if the person had an issue with the head. There is no mention of pistons, rings, connecting rod bearings, engine main bearings, oil pump. These are parts to an engine overhaul. It sounds as if they had maybe a timing belt to break and may have bent valves or either the bolt that broke off required them to pull the head off the engine to have bolt drilled out. Please rate my answer, Thank you.
