G'day

My power steering pump i pissing fluid evereywhere, which is dripping onto the alternator, which can't be good. It makes a hissing noise as it turns, especially at low speed. How much to repair it?

Ahh, just cut the belt and rip off the pump. It will make your car go faster and it will save you having to go to the gym.

look you just have to cut your problemns and buy a new pump about $190
and with the alternator douse it with degreaser and hose off. see how it goes. if no good your alternator can be as cheep as $20 from a wrecker or about $150 new from your local auto electrician. (happy repairs)

cheers daz :D

I just got told a trick with powersteering pumps yesterday.. if its noisy and sounds likes its about to go.. go to your local ford parts place. (weather the car is holden ford toyota etc..) get orignal ford powersteering fluid and flush the old s**t out and fill with the ford orignal stuff. from wat ive heard works wounders and fixes em.. dont ask me how havnt found that bit out yet but yer.. tried it on my ef and has worked a treat.. :D
