dustin102 Just an FYI... I just swapped out my thermostat last weekend. Remove the belt. The there a 4 bolts holding that p.s. Pump On. The one behind the line will be the last bolt to come off. I was able to get an open end wrench on that bolt and thread it off. With out removing the line. The oil reservoir will just pop off the pump when the top to bolts are off.... Just take it off and drain it to get it out of the way. This is a PITA I spent maybe an hour and half on that bolt getting it out then back in. but it is possible. :eek:

Bruce Almighty I can position a 6'' wescot wrench on it, but I'm afraid I'll break something when pulling. Guess I'll have to try harder and maybe find me a flare nut wrench (18mm)

I will use that t-stat writeup, but my engine is the 2.0, should be similar.

elsolo That's a neat writeup for thermostat.....

Back to the power steering pump:

There is no trick to the hardline, other than make enough room for yourself and use a flare nut wrench. (6-point box end wrench with slot cut out).

PS pump removal

I need to know if there is a trick to remove the hard line from the PS pump so I can remove it from the engine bay and get to my t-stat housing (my main job).

To date I removed: belt, PS reservoir, light housing, sensor connector and 2 bolts of the PS pump. I put a small wrench on the nut of the hard line and pull has hard has I can, but it wont move.

Thanks for the help, I need to get this done so my wife can have her car back.
