Do you know a backyard mechanic whom I could pay to come change the power steering pump on my truck? Sooner is better than later, but it doesn t have to be tomorrow or anything. Without the power steering pump, I can t really drive it anywhere, and my truck is not really worth towing, so it is best if I can have someone come here.Other technical notes: i m not positive that it is the power steering pump but there is power steering fluid everywhere, the pump is empty and the fluid stick has a definite burnt smell. I do have the chilton book for the truck, but the change does require loosening the serp belt and a pully puller. Now I m off to figure out what I can do for work tomorrow that can be done by bus.
