Water Pumps

If a 1996 Lumina has started to make a loud noise that sounds like a bad pulley but you have changed the water pump and steering wheel pump and pulley could it be the AC pump?

Don't just replace parts until the problem goes away! Remove the serpentine belt and check the individual pulley's and idler wheels. Often an idler pulley will make noise after it has been disturbed. This has nothing to do with the method of installation, it just means that the pulley was old and ready to give you problems anyway. With the belt off, check each individual component by turning it manually. Give each a spin to see if they make any noises that sound remotely like what you have been hearing.

The main pulley on which the serpentine belt goes on in a 1997 Chevy Lumina LTZ is the crankshaft pulley. The crankshaft pulley plays a role in the wheels turning and powering the alternator and power steering pump.

This requires a power steering pulley puller. This puller is designed to remove and install a power steering pulley without damage to the pulley and or pump. Attempting to do this without the puller will result in damaging the pulley or the pump or both.

You need a pulley puller tool to install it, and a pulley installer tool to install it. The problem I'm having is that the new pulley was so tight I broke the puller trying to force it on. Good luck. Making a simple repair d@$% near impossible is a Ford trademark. Junk it and buy a Lumina.

Begin by loosening the tensioner pulley. Slide the tensioner pulley to the right. The power steering belt will become loose and can be removed. Put the new power steering belt on and tighten it by sliding the tensioner pulley to the left.
