This has got to be one of the biggest pains in the rear end I have ever had the pleasure of doing with the engine installed. The alternator/serpentine belt will need to be removed. Right wheel, and inner plastic fenders behind the wheel. Power Steering lines will need to be unbolted and all mounting rods and hardware removed. Return line can be removed when you drop the unit down. The biggest problem I ran into with the replacement was reconnecting the return line. It took me 30 minutes do get the clamp on just right. It is in such a position that I had to use a 2 foot long set of angled needlenose pliers. This was more miserable than replacing the entire engine. Be patient.

Your Vue has electric steering therefore there is no pump. If you have no power strg you have an electrical problem........with the power steering unit or wiring to it. Troubles codes can be read for the steering to help in diagnostics


You can do it. I did it on my 1996 Saturn, but I did it while I was changing the engine. The new engine came with a power steering pump, so I also purchased a new power steering rack as well, and while I had the engine out I removed the old manual steering rack and put in the new one, connected the hoses, and voila, I had power steering. I'm not sure all cars are this easy, but my Saturn was. .


No, you don't have to remove the power steering pump to remove water pump. You do have to loosen the 2 screws that hold the power steering pump and then move power steering pump about an inch or so, so you can have access to some of the screws that hold the water pump on.

There is no pump to replace. Saturn Ions do not use conventional hydraulic power steering. They use a electric power steering system that uses a small electric motor to provide steering assistance. They are known for problems. If you are having problems with yours, bring it to any GM dealer and they should fix it. GM extended the warranty on the power steering of all Saturn Ions, Chevy Cobalts, Chevy HHRs and Pontiac G5s to 10 years or 100,000 miles.


No, the power steering is a mechanical system that operates on hydraulic pressure. The hydraulic pressure is generated by the power steering pump that is attached to the front of the engine and receives it's power from the serpentine belt.

power steering pump failure ----------------------- If it is a Dodge truck then i see alot of Power steering pump shafts that are broken. To test, then pull on the power steering pump pulley - if it pulls out then you have a broken pump shaft.
