I've been working on an 85 Oldsmobile with a V8 and I replaced the power steering pump. There are about three holes on the pulley itself, line one of the holes up with a nut on the other side of the pump and loosen to move the pump along a bracket.

You will probably need to replace power steering hose-I have owned several toronados and generation two bodies with 307 v8 always leak at power steering hose eventually-especially with high miles-replacing hose always worked for me. When this hose leaks it tends to get fluid on belts making them squeel

loosen the alternator bolts and then push the alternator downward to loosen the one belt and the other belt you have to loosen the power steering pump and push down on it to take the other belt off.

Use any fluid for use in power steering systems that is labeled Power Steering Fluid.1984-2001 Cherokee Owners Manuals and Factory Service Manuals both state in bold letters DO NOT USE ANY ATF IN THE POWER STEERING.

No the Pontiac Fierodid not come with power steering.No. They did come out with an Electrical power steering unit, but it only came with the 1988 Fiero's. Look into them. Idkif you can put them on any other year but i would like to know to put it on my 86 GT.

Between the water pump and firewall on passenger side

It actually uses ATF in the power steering system. I believe Dextron IID was the spec for '84, but fortunately the newer Dexron formulations are backwards compatible.

It depends on what AC system is in your car ,, some had the Compressor "swing away " (like the usual)......some had a lock nut and Vernier type adjust ment..some you adjust by moving the idler pulley....... some are adjusted with the power steer pump (if they share a belt).... the least obvious had shims in the crank pulley a la VW's.

Look and see if it is driving anything else. As far as driving it without a belt, I would not advice you even attempt this. The steering would be extremely difficult and it would be dangerous. Buy a new belt and install it.

Perhaps it is designed to fit multiple years and/or models

On the V6 engine the power steering reservoir is on the firewall side of the engine below the level of the exhaust manifold. There may be heater hoses or wiring harness over it making the filler cap a little hard to see.

The washer fluid reservoir in the middle under the hood slides forward and out. Once you've pulled it off its tray, move it to the side and you'll be able to see the power steering reservoir below where the washer fluid was.

Oldsmobile was a brand of vehicles built by GM. They are no longer build. I own a 1984 Cutlass Supreme in beautiful condition.

It is important to have everything in the steering wheel column in its correct place. A diagram for the 1984 Grand Prix steering wheel column can be found in its maintenance manual.

best to replace it then bleed the brakes

Follw the belts. One will lead back towards the firewall down low, that's where you'll find it.
