Where does the steering pump cooler go on a 2002 pontiac trans am 5.7 liter ws6?

The power steering pump has hoses that attach to the coolant pipe (silver pipe). The silver pipe is basically all coolant and inside that pipe has capillary tubes that has the power steering fluid flowing through it. It's basically an air to water power steering cooler. One hose should be coming from the power steering pump and the other should be coming from the rack.

Transmission & Power Steering Fluids get changed
on all your vehicles, every 3 years, or they fail,
& cost a lot to fix,thousands

Not to be hurtful here but all your talking about I have
done on my wifes 2004 lincoln
That is normal wear on todays cars

Your just driving it out to the end until you have to
park it & do all that at one time

I do my own work & lay the cars up for a week or
more a year to do those things as they come up

Power Steering

You steering rack is worn & tight, because you don't change your
power steering fluid every 3 years,your transmission will be next.

Brake fluid every 2 years
PS & Trans every 3 years

My 2004 deville shifts a little rough at different speeds.It seems to do it when the car is warm to hot.It does not leak.Would a transmission flush help the problem?It has 76000 miles.we bought it with...

You Change Trans & Power Steering Fluids every
30,000 miles on ALL Vehicles

I don't suggest flushing,some people do

If you want to chance having problems get
it flushed

You remove all the fluid it may just start to slip

You have to understand that fluid changes DO NOT FIX

The fluid removes heat & breaks down
That is why it is changed

I would assume you don't flush brake fluid every 2 years
Trans & Steering every 3 years,not over 30,000 miles
Spark Plugs at 60,000 miles

When you buy a used vehicle you lay it up for two weeks
& work on it,never drive it
All Preventative maintenance gets done,regardless
of what you were told about the vehicle

the sreeing i would make sure belt is tight and have the power steering fluid flushed,you may what to change trany oil with a bg system flush and then after the flush replace the filter and pan gasket,as far as the sputtering it may be the trany or the engine misfiring,have the fuel preasure tested and maybe have the injectors cleaned with a motor vac service, hope this helps,

Power steering fluid leaks, rack replaced approx a year ago

May have a failure in the replaced rack. I would take it back to the shop that did the work for warranty. If you got a remanufactured rack it was re-built and may have had major problems that were not fixed with the rebuild.

Power steering fluid leaking through the rack and pinion on passenger side. How do I best cure the leakage?

If the leakage is coming from the bellows on tie rod the best fix is rack & pinion replacement. Rebuilt racks are often less expensive than new. Get 2-3 estimates before you commit.
