Default Special tools for removing & installing PS Pump

Hello all,

I need to know what kind of special tools which are required to remove/install the PS pump on my 2000 Ford Taurus with Vulcan engine.

Based on my research, I need a special remover and installer in order to remove the pulley wheel from the pump.

Here is my finding:

OEM/Power steering pulley puller installer kit (27031) | Power Steering Pulley Puller/Installer | AutoZone.com

Does this tool fit my car?

Also, do I need a special tool to remove the high pressure line from the reservoir? Any thing I should pay attention?

Thank you

That puller set should do you fine from what I can tell. As for wrenches, you will need an 18mm flare nut wrench and a 24mm open end wrench to remove the high pressure line.

You can rent that kit for free with a deposit from AutoZone and other parts stores with a tool loaner program. May be good to use a flare-nut (line) wrench on the high line, but not absolutely necessary. If you want Xmas tools, the ps remove/install kit and sets of flare-nut wrenches are available for cheap at Harbor Freight Tools. Be sure to get the proper flare-nut metric set that includes the wrench size you need for the pressure line. Make sure you carefully mark/measure the position of the pulley on the old pump prior pulley removal and install it in the same location on the new pump. If you don't, you'll encounter belt alignment problems.

Nice image! Big Thanks

Which wrench (18mm or 24mm) I should hold solid and which one I should turn? I assume that I should turn the wrench which is near the high-pressure line with size of 18mm. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thank you

Mark where? The PS wheel is installed on an axle. Why we should pay attention and mark the location? Do you mean the depth location of the wheel on the axle?

Thank you

You would hold the 24mm wrench and use the 18mm flare wrench to turn the fitting. You may get away with using a regular open end wrench there, but in my case that was not going to work.

YOu can use a tapered punch to roll the Teflon seal up enough to slide over the threads. Dental pick tools are helpful too. Buy two of those seals when you're at the dealer. Esp if it's your first time replacing them. IF you overstretch or tear one, you got backup
