View Full Version : I need a power steering belt
01-20-2011, 05:37 PM
Apparently that's one of the things that didn't pass on inspections, the brakes apparently were fine though after I put the new fluid in(haven't driven it myself yet though) although the light still comes on, I'll address it in my other thread.
Anyway, where can I get a good power steering belt for as cheap as possible?
Edit: Does my car even have a power steering belt, just read some stuff that says it's not common on cars beyond 1990. So they must've meant serpentine belt right?

Yes it has a power steering belt, your car has one belt that drives everything. They are still on most cars up to current models... a few cars have cam driven pumps... some hybrids have no external belts...
Just buy one from your local discount parts place. Call around and compare prices if you want... its cheap enough that you're not going to save all that much looking for a deal on the internet.

Oh so it is a serpentine belt
They should've explained that
I'll just get one of those Goodyear Gatorbacks then, I've heard good things about them. I wanted to eventually get a better belt anyway too.
Still I wonder why mine failed the inspection, my uncle pointed it out and said it was pretty quiet while the engine was running a few days ago. Must've been too many cracks or something.

yup... if its anywhere close to falling apart it fails in most states.

Got a 4060915 Gatorback Poly V-Belt for $20.35 off eBay with free shipping
Now I just gotta find a guide on how to replace it and a belt placement reference.

the belt routing is on a sticker under the hood.......belt tensioner tension is released with a wrench or a ratchet
