A smaller belt
Yes, you can expect a car that has a serpentine belt to lose power steering when the belt breaks because the belt goes around the power steering pump's pulley.
Power steering pump is next to firewall on passenger side at top rear of motor. look under hood for serpentine belt routing diagram. power steering pump is one of those pulleys, top left corner of diagram.
Yes, if it's connected to your power steering pump.
Assuming you have a 91 to 02 LX with AC, power steering and alternator the belt starting with the tensioner on top then it goes clockwise to the alternator, power steering, idler pulley, A/C, crankshaft pulley---------back to the tensioner.
Plain regular power steering fluid.
If it is a serpentine belt - adjusts automatically through belt tensioner If not check the alternator for adjuster or Power steering pump
Pinch the belt into a loop, pass "the loop" down the right side of the fan & slip it onto the crank pulley,pass the "non-ribbed" side over the water pump, then left onto the alternator, then up onto the A/C, then down under the idler pully, & over to the power-steering pump and finally the "non-ribbed" side down to the adjustable idler pulley that sits below the Power steering pump.
On my '97 4.0 liter, it's a pulley below the power steering pump, to the right of the water pump as you look into the engine compartment. On my 92 2.5 L the power steering pump position is adjustable to tension the belt.
There is no standalone "power steering belt" on a 94 cavalier, just one long serpentine belt. There is a diagram in front of the motor on the passenger side right next to the prop rod. That diagram shows proper belt routing.
There should be a routing diagram under the hood. If it is the 2.8L V6 the diagram is on a guard above the belt between the power steering pump and the water pump.
Power Steering Serpentine Belt or pump.
It's common for leaking power steering fluid gets on the serpentine belt - causing slippage and ultimately belt breakage.
The power steering pump is located on the front of the engine. The uppermost pump connected to the serpentine belt.
Those two are not connected, the shroud is on the radiator and the power steering reservoir is on the motor.
The power steering unit and the alternator are both driven by the serpentine belt. Loosen the tensioner pulley and the serpentine belt will become loose. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten the tensioner pulley.
A serpentine belt run multiple auxiliary applications (IE AC, Power Steering, Alternator)
Are you sure it's a serpentine? From the manual, a 1999 V-6 Galant should have 2 drive belts. 1 should control both the power steering and water pumps and the other is for the alternator and A/C compressor.
The alternator, water pump, power steering pump, air conditioner and possibly the air pump receive power from the serpentine belt.
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.
They are both YJ's so it should be a good fit.
