Step 7: Press on the Power Steering Pulley

Attach Power Steering pulley. This is performed with the pulley press. The press has two pieces -- (a) a through bolt, and (b) a hub press.

1) Screw the hub press completely on the through bolt.

2) Grease the pulley and the pump hub.

3) Place pulley on pump hub.

4) Attach through bolt into hub. NOTE: Be absolutely certain to tighten the through bolt completely in the hub. There will be significant pressure against the bolt threads, and the bolt will likely strip out of the hub if not completely tightened into hub assembly.

5) Tighten the hub press against the pulley until the pulley is aligned with the remaining belted equipment.

6) Remove the hub press and through bolt from the pump.

I've been thinking about doing instructables when I work on my car, but the swearing that seems to be required with every project makes me think otherwise.&nbsp; However, you did such a great job with this, I might try on my next one. :)<br />

<p>Your message is unclear. </p><p>* Your car shuts off at stoplights? It would be hard to believe that is the power steering, especially if you are able to restart it. </p><p>* Your power steering goes out at stoplights? But then comes back when you take off from the stop light? Hmm. I'd expect this is caused by low fluid, or a loose, slipping belt. Could you take a video of the power steering pump while it is running at idle, upload it to Youtube or something?</p><p>On leaking a little fluid each day, it might be the power steering pump (should take 1 hour to replace, no more than 2 hours), but it could also be the power steering rack (2+ hours to replace), or it could be either the pressure hose or the return hose (1 hour to replace both).</p><p>If I were you I'd recommend getting the </p>
