APV Chevy Lumina APV Engine size = 3.1 liter.

Question = how do you remove the high pressure power steering hose from the rack? Do I
need to lower the sub frame or can I get at it from the engine compartment?

Best way to get the lines off the rack is the lower the frame a few inches and be sure to
support it. Dont go down too far or you may pull the steering shaft out of the lower steering
column, and make more work for yourself. If worried about it, just remove the steering shaft
pinch bolt and pop the steering shaft off the rack.

Problem with my 2008 Chevrolet Impala Engine size 3.5L V6.
No dash lights or codes in the computer.

Question = Well.. Say I want to pass someone. I get into it, RPMs go up. I hold it there for a
minute. After i park it and let the car idle, I hear a, like a whine, or "
power steering" whine, but its
not the P.S. It won't do it when you turn. After letting sit and idle, if you rev a little, the engine
whines, and gets louder. Any suggestions why my Impala is doing this? Thanks!
Be sure to check the transmission fluid level. Low trans. fluid can give a whine noise that is
related to engine speed. You may need to remove the serpentine belt after you get the noise
to start. Then re-start the engine and see if it goes away.

That would indicate one of the accessories on the drive belt is the culprit. If it does go away,
then re-install belt. While it is whining, you can use a stethoscope to try to isolate what is
making the noise-Alternator, water pump, A/C compressor.
