Driving without PS Pump

I was in the process of replacing my power steering pump but was unable to get the old pulley off of the old pump, so I have to wait for a pulley to arrive from Vancouver.

I've read the post on looping the lines, but I think that's a little excessive since I will be putting the pump back on. Just wondering if there is any sort of quick/dirty fix so that I can drive to work tomorrow instead of riding my bike in the rain.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Driving without PS Pump

Yes, but there are two hoses/lines that are open now since the pump is not there. Can I just plug them for now and drive it?

Re: Driving without PS Pump

honestly, just put the old pump back on but leave the belt off it. that's your best case scenario. besides of course, totally deleting PS from your car. I did and it's amazing

Re: Driving without PS Pump

yeah you're right, that lower hose won't reach the upper one even if I wanted to rig something up. I'll just suck it up and ride the cbr to work =)

Re: Driving without PS Pump

i know that deleting P/S gives you a better feel for the road but i totally hate driving my civic with no P/S! I ****ing hate it! You haven't parallel parked until you have done it with no power steering. I love driving my prelude with power steering, drive a car with none until you decided to delete it.

Re: Driving without PS Pump

Good call, if you were to drive it after already emptying the lines then you would run the risk of messing up your steering rack since there would be a lack of fluid.


As far as the old pulley goes - you know you have to go clockwise to loosen it right?

Re: Driving without PS Pump

I have the official honda service manual so I was aware the nut was a left-hand thread.

It was really on there and I actually put a crack in my ****ty workbench trying to break the nut free with the pump in a vise. Ended up deforming the pulley. Sucks but such is life.
