Pump Kits / 200sx / 97-99
[RB8360.2]
$19.01

Online tutorial that covers THIS power steering pump seal kit. (link will open in new window)

Here is some info on the pump, and how it is defective.
On the higher miled motors, the bearing in the pump can be very worn out, I have now changed pumps on 2 cars, both with over 170k.
The reason for the bearing failure is unknown.. (to me anywase) even on some of the best kept cars they wear out, Yet they shouldnt since there alwase lubed with power steering fluid. My best guess is from tempature changes or using the wrong fluid.

Symptoms of a failing power steering pump.

  • Excessive squeeling in the engine compartment, usually people identify it as the idler pulleys but its not alwase them.
  • Power steering fluid is leaking in small amounts (wich later turns to large amounts) from the rear of the motor.
  • Power steering fluid everywhere on the rear of the motor (seen from top)
  • Power steering fluid leaking out faster then you can pour it in
  • Excessive noise coming from the belt area..(same sound as the idlers wearing out) can be a symptom of the pump wearing out.

Why you shouldnt drive when the pump is bad or not functioning at all.
The bearing is vital to the pump, when the bearing go's, it will usually take out the outer seal wich leaks fluid out, this will also let any debri out. If it doesnt take out that seal, it could damage the inner seal, allowing shavings or particals to enter the actual pump part. This can clog the pump, lines or rack and damage it.
The best thing to do is stop driving the car, and fix it asap. You can drive it for an amount of time, but once the noise continues to be persistant, and very loud. Stop, other wise plan to buy a new/used pump, yours wont be fixable.
The worst case scenerio would have to be the pump seizing, causing the belt to brake over time, wich stops the waterpump also,then causes the motor to overheat.


Your choices:

  • You can buy a new reman pump, Range from $100-200Good choice, but are expensive. Not many places keep them in stock, so you may have to wait to get this.
  • You can buy a used pump wich usually range from $20-40, Plus you must pay for shipping if not included and you will have to wait days to recieve it. And you dont alwase know how long it will last.
  • You can rebuild your pump. For as little as $15 or less. If you buy the bearing ahead of time, you can have you car back on the road as fast as you can take the pump out and put it back i

First off tools you will need:

  1. 12mm socket/ratchet or wrench
  2. Fine Steel wool
  3. A cleaner of your choice (brake cleaner, carb cleaner, parts washing fluid) I used non-chlorinated brake cleaner.
  4. A small hammer
  5. A flat head screw driver or punch.

Reviews

Is a rebuild kit right for me? : We get this question quite frequently and there is no definitive answer. Rebuilding a power steering pump or rack is only a matter of disassembly and seal replacement. If you are comfortable with standard hand tools, enjoy working on your own car and want to save a few dollars by doing the rebuild yourself then Yes. You have come to the right place.

What is in the kit? : The kits include every seal, o-ring and internal wear component inside your power steering rack or pump. This is the same kit the "rebuilders" use when they make an old power steering rack or pump new again.
 
How are the kits shipped? : We use Priority Mail service from the United States Postal Service. Most kits fit inside a small "flat rate" envelope and this saves you on the shipping costs.

When will my kit ship after I order it? : Some kits are built to order and other high volume kits are on the shelf and ready to go. As a rule of thumb your kit should ship anywhere from 1-5 days after you order it.

Do you ship out of the United States? : Yes. We use Global Priority Mail from the United States Postal Service. Global packages arrive within 1 to 2 weeks after they ship from us. The delay in arrival depends on how long the package is held in customs before it is cleared for delivery in the destination country.

 Do you offer support for the installations? : This is a tough one and I wish we could say that we do. With so many variations of pumps and racks we cannot trouble shoot every installation question. If you just remember to mark the orientation and replace all the seals during disassembly you should have no problems. A few common questions are listed in our FAQ section that may help you out.

Can I order over the phone? : Yes. If you are not comfortable ordering online or are having difficulties please feel free to give our sales office a call at 352-466-0219 .
