Pretty simple unbolt and bolt back on operation. One thing though is most rebuilt pumps come with no pulley and you will need a machine shop to transfer yours to the new one. A special tool is necessary to do that so don't attempt it without the tool. If you haven't ever done this work, get a manual such as haynes or chiltons...it will not only help you there but in the future too.
After it's installed, fill the reservoir with power steering fluid and gently turn the steering wheel all the way in one direction (running) and then all the way in the other direction. Re-fill the reservoir and do the same again 'till the air in the system has been purged. Some fluid foaming and slight noise is normal but should disappear after a half hour or so.

sound like lack of lubrication at the steering joints, your ball joints need greasing and make sure you bleed power steering system, check power steering fluid level.if low more like power steering system full of air need bleeding.

I have 95 jeep grand cherokee i replaced power steering pump and gear box and i still dont have any power steering


Did you bleed the power steering pump after you replaced it. I know its a dumb question, but I have seen it before.Slowly move the steering wheel back and forth from stop to stop. Make sure the fluid is always full or you will reintroduce air into the system.

2000 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 liter engine timing belt replacement


If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.

97 Jeep grand cherokee with stiff steering at 9:00 and 3:00...


Check and see if the Power Steering Pump is Low on Fluid. If not Low, you could have a Leak in the Pump or Lines and will need to be Replaced. Also Make sure that the Belt is good and Tight. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
