Thanks again hyundaitech for all your help....timing fixed....temperature
control fixed....went to drive the car....started fine...went to back up,
turned the wheel sqealllllllllllllllllllllll........I think I'm going to get
Last night I changed the serpentine belts...everything seemed appropriately
tight (if I try to twist the belt I can only go about 90 degrees....to
tight? not tight enough?). Ran fine....drove fine...turned fine (no squeal -
p/s was definitely working)......
Now it squeals for just a second when I start the car (really, no more than
1 second)...it idles ok, but when I turn the wheel (more than approx 2
inches)....the power steering pump locks up and the belt keeps going.
The bracket that holds the p/s pump is a little loose, but the space is
small enough that I couldn't even get a washer (or bushing) in-between the
bracket and pump. (I don't know how else to describe it...)...with the car
not running , the p/s pulley turns easily...no play. (and the same while
idling....only locks up when I turn the wheel)
Thanks to any ideas in advance.....(really, the help has saved me a ton.)
