Power Steering Pumps: Making Steering Easy
The Power Steering Pump is responsible for making steering your vehicle much
easier. If you have ever had this pump fail, which might be the reason you are on this page,
you know how difficult it is to drive without it. On top of that, you will probably feel
the impact even more on your wallet. Here at AutoPartsNerd,
we bring you high quality power steering pumps from Cardone and Arc Remanufacturing. Our prices
are also better than anything you will find at a dealer, auto parts store, or your local mechanic.
Power Steering pumps often come with out their pulley because the p/s pulley is
typically easy to reuse from your old pump. If you power steering pump pulley
also needs to be replaced, you may have to purchase it separately.

A1 Cardone will have new or remanufactured power steering
pumps available, but not necessarily for all applications. Cardone has such an extensive history in remanufacturing p/s pumps (under

Select) where demand existed, but available p/s pumps to remanufacturer didn't.

specifically aim to correct the original equipment manufactures (OEM) high
failure rates. A1 Cardone's remanufactured p/s pumps cover over 50 years of

Power Steering Pump Operation and Failure
steering pump is powered by your engine and is a relatively complex assembly
of valves that ultimately create enough hydraulic pressure to operate your
Power Steering Rack and Pinion which turns
your wheels. The power steering pump creates a high pressure system in order
to do so. The most common reason for your power steering pump to fail is
because of a problem with your power steering fluid. Either a leak in the
pressure system or a blockage in a
Power Steering Hose will cause an
insufficient amount of fluid to effectively create enough pressure for the
rest of your steering system. This failure is often accompanied by a whining
noise that happens simultaneously while turning your steering wheel. The
best preventative maintenance to keep your power steering pump operating is
to check your power steering fluid on a regular basis and change your power
steering filter if necessary.
