I have a 1996 GT that I have am trying to replace the power steering pump. I am having trouble getting the return hose unthreaded or loosened from the pump. Does anyone have any ideas or has done one recently. I rented the pulley removal tool from advance auto parts and thought it may be easier to go ahead and remove the pulley so i could have more room to remove the return hose bolt, but I cant get the pulley off either. That tool doesnt seem to fit right. They said it worked for the 4.6 but I could not get it to work. Does anyone have any ideas or have pulled the power steering pump off a 4.6l? Thanks
I am going to remove the oil filter to see if that gives me a little bit more room. If I can just get the return hose off I'm home free with just the issue of pulling and installing the pulley. I would bypass taking that hose off first if it wasn't for the fact that the last bolt for the pump is right under that line. I cant undo the pump without undoing that line first. I think that return hose bolt is an 18 and I'm going to try removing the oil filter for more room. Do you know which auto parts store will have the best rental tool for the pulley? I had trouble with the tool from advance.
