Q: i was told power steering pump needed to be replaced and hoses were leaking

asked by on

i was not having a problem with steering at all and the weird sound i would hear even sitting still seemed to come from the pulley. turns out pulley was loose how ever my power steering pump sits on top and when the mechanic went to take it off he had not protected any of the other components so i noticed the fluid was going right inside my alternator on all the belts and when i mentioned it to the mechanic he reply was it happens he broke the pump when installing it and continued on and he was turning my wheel left to right and was now screaming with tire movement which was not the prior issue. it was only making noise from the wheel that the belt runs on before.i asked him if he was suppose to flush out old fluid he told me he didn't have to. while sitting there with what ever fluid was running through if any at all was even making to the rack, because it was seeping from the new pump while putting it on to the car he broke it would that have been enough to break my rack
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

The symptoms you're describing are indicators of a bad or failing power steering pump. It is always a good idea to install new pulley's and hoses anytime you replace the power steering pump; as when one component fails on the power steering system; other parts tend to break at the same time. I would recommend having a professional mobile mechanic inspect this issue onsite to be certain that you really need to have the power steering replacement service completed however, as it's very difficult to diagnose this problem remotely.
