About Power Steering Pulleys
The power steering pulleys function is to drive the power steering pump on a vehicle. It is usually made of solid steel because of the amount of strain that the pulley experiences through use. They operate at faster-than-engine speed. A power steering pulley will experience a huge amount of torque and speed so lightweight materials are not recommended for its construction as it could break or bend under the strain of the load. Because of this strong material it is unlikely that a power steering pulley will malfunction, and removal will only usually be in order if replacing the power steering pump. In the event that you need to remove a power steering pulley you should use the specialised tool for the job.
There are two different types of power steering pulley in operation and are powered either by the serpentine belt or single V-Type belt. The benefit of the serpentine belt is that it is less likely to break than the single V-type, meaning that the power steering pulley is more reliable.
Signs that the power steering pulley is not operating correctly could include squealing noises when driving or steering which tends to veer or shift to the side.
- Mazda is the only Japanese car manufacturer not to be based in Tokyo. Instead, they work out of Hiroshima and were there when a nuclear bomb was dropped. The Mazda factories actually survived the atomic bomb thanks to a small mountain being in the way.
- Mazda is the only Japanese car manufacturer to have ever won the 24 Hours of Le Mans contest. They won in 1991 with the rotary-powered 787B, sending shockwaves throughout the racing community.
- Mazda has always been big fans of the rotary engine, and although they originally started using them to help distinguish themselves from other car manufacturers, they are still the only car manufacturer to mass-produce rotary engine-powered vehicles.
- The attempt by Mazda to make a fast electric car was very successful. The Mazda RX-7 was built in 1979 and could reach an impressive 111.8mph.
- Mazda loves a good slogan, and they've used a lot of them in their long history. Aside from their most famous "Zoom Zoom", they've also used less snappy slogans like, "It just feels right", and Get in. Be moved."
