SOURCE: how to replace the power steering pump on a 2001

Welcome to Fixya

here's the procedure on how to replace water pump of your car

  • 1 Turn the belt tensioner pulley counterclockwise on the 3.4L modeal. Use a breaker bar and a socket to rotate the center bolt on the tensioner pulley. If you have a 3.5L engine model, turn the pulley clockwise.

  • 2 Slide the drive belt off the steering pump pulley.
  • 3 Detach the black ground cable from the battery using a wrench.
  • 4 Position a drain pan under the car in the direction of the steering pump hoses.
  • 5 Move any wire brackets near the steering pump out of the way using a wrench or ratchet and socket, if necessary.
  • 6 Disconnect the return hose from the power steering pump by loosening the clamp at the steering pump using a ratchet and socket. Then pull the hose off the pump and let the steering fluid drain into the pan.
  • 7 Detach the pressure hose from the steering pump by unscrewing the retaining nut at the pump using a tube wrench. Let the steering fluid drain on the pan.
  • 8 Unscrew the steering-pump mounting bolts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.
  • 9 Lift the power steering pump off the engine compartment.
  • Install the New Steering Pump
  • 1 Position the new steering pump in place and start the mounting bolts by hand. Then tighten the bolts using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.
  • 2 Attach the pressure hose to the steering pump by starting the retaining nut by hand. Then tighten the nut using the tube wrench.
  • 3 Connect the return hose to the steering pump. Then tighten the clamp using the ratchet and socket.
  • 4 Reinstall any wire brackets you had to remove using a wrench or ratchet and socket.
  • 5 Connect the black ground cable to the battery using a wrench.
  • 6 Install the drive belt by turning the tensioner pulley counterclockwise using the breaker bar and socket. Then slide the belt over the steering pump pulley. If you have the Aztek 3.5L engine, turn the tensioner pulley clockwise.
  • 7 Reinstall any wire brackets you had to remove form near the steering pump using the wrench or ratchet and socket.
  • 8 Connect the black, ground cable to the battery using a wrench.
  • Bleed the Power Steering System
  • 1 Refill the steering fluid reservoir with new steering fluid. Make sure the level reaches the Full Cold mark on the reservoir.
  • 2 Raise the front of the vehicle using a floor jack until the front tires are off the ground. Then support the car on 2 jack stands.
  • 3 Turn the ignition key to the On position but do not start the engine.
  • 4 Turn the steering wheel fully from left to right 15 times.
  • 5 Check the fluid level in the steering reservoir and add if necessary.
  • 6 Lower the vehicle and start the engine. Turn the steering wheel and listen for steering noises. If you hear noises while turning the steering wheel, repeat steps 2 through 5 of the bleeding procedure to get rid of the air in the steering system. Turn off the engine.

  • Thank you for using Fixya!

    How do the power steering hoses go on on a 2001 Pontiac Aztek and why is there no circular motion inside the pump


    The only squared thing on the pump is the "plastic"
    fluid tank... Everything else about the design & function
    is "circular".

    There is ABSOLUTELY circular "MOTION" inside the PUMP...
    PLEASE NOTE... there is a giant pulley on the front..
    and the design of the pump is all about rotational force of the hydraulic pump (right THROUGH the middle).

    High pressure to the high pressure...
    (with a possible cooler option in the middle)
    Low pressure back to the reservoir

    How do I replace the fuel pump on an 01 Pontiac Aztec?


    Not easy. Fuel pump is inside gas tank. Some cars have a panel in the floor above the gas tank to allow access, but I think yours does not. If not, you must drop the tank.

    My 2002 Aztec lost all it's anti-freeze I noticed that the back left was wet, and found no blown hoses in the front. does this indicate a blown water pump and if so how do I replace it


    It could be a split in the radiator or the pump leaking or a blown head gasket would also pump water out of the radiator. Refill it with water and run the engine with the radiator cap off. If there is a dribble coming from the pump it needs to be replaced. If a large amount of bubbles come from the radiator, and blow water all over the place, suspect a blown head gasket.

    Inside the glove compartment there may be a charcoal filter. I know my Aztec had one and replacing it made it blow like new.
