I have a question which concerns my power steering pump. I have removed the belts and have ordered all pulleys and tensioners due to a noise (squealing, screaming, screeching, etc.). At first I thought it was the PSP but am not sure now as one of the pulleys is definitely on its last leg.
What I need to know is how much free spin the power steering pump should have when using my hand to spin it? Hope that does sound too weird but I was told to spin it to see it was frozen. It is not frozen but it will only turn about one rotation by hand. Is this normal? No grinding sound or loose pulley found.:tsk:
