The power steering pump in your car is extremely important to the power steering system. It enables the system to work properly and for you to steer easily, bringing greater safety and operation to your vehicle. The following steps will help you buy a power steering pump repair kit for your vehicle.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Consider the cost of a rebuild kit compared to the cost of a new power steering pump. The cost of the repair kit may be more or similar to the cost of replacing the power steering pump with a new one, which is the ideal situation.

  2. 2

    Know what is usually included in a power steering pump rebuild kit to compare the different suppliers and retailers of the kit. There should be seals, bearings, rollers, check balls, washers and other miscellaneous hardware which is dependent on your vehicle's make and model. One of the best power steering pump rebuilt kits is by Durlast, available from Auto Zone or other auto parts online stores.

  3. 3

    Compare the prices at many local auto repair chains or online to find the best deal when considering rebuilt steering pump repair kits. As mentioned, Duralast is considered to be one of the highest caliber kits and thus is a little more costly than a more generic kit.

  4. 4

    Inspect the power steering pump rebuild kit closely before using and installing the components on the power steering pump. You should note if there is any damage or missing pieces immediately, and return it to the store or other retailer for a replacement or refund.
