Autozone Atsco Power Steering Pump

Recommended Posts

I special-ordered a reman ATSCO power steering pump from Autozone (listed in their system as coming with a replacement reservoir as well) for my 91 LS since it came with a lifetime warranty and was $30 cheaper than the A1 Cardone with was listed as not coming with a replacement reservoir. The part came in yesterday, but did not have a reservoir with it. The Autozone guys ordered another one at that point, which came in today, again with no reservoir. Has anyone on this list ordered a replacement ATSCO pump from Autozone and had it come with a reservoir? It's not that it's that big of a deal to clean out the old one and connect it to the new pump, but I was hoping to avoid the extra hassle.

I just went to and then started calling 5 local Autozones. Every store had one ATSCO With Reservoir "in stock". BUT when we looked at it, it did NOT have a Reservoir with it. After calling the other stores, got them to visually check theirs in the box, and NONE had a reservoir.

Was planning on replacing mine tomorrow.

The number at the Autozone[Randleman Rd, Greensboro,NC] is 336-272-3510. Where I got mine in Dec.

The part # on the invoice is posted above; it is the rebuilt pump WITH reservoir !!!

Not sure about the name ATSCO--don't know what that is--it is not on the invoice. The listing on the invoice is "IMP POWER STEERING".

All you ask for is a rebuilt power steering pump for your LS400.

It appears that they changed vendors but did not change the description. I definitely asked for the part # 061141-5175 which is the same one as the one at autozone online.

Thanks

I put the same Autozone PS pump in my '90 and it seems to be solid. Much cheaper than any other place and it's a rebuild. I've had good luck with Autozone stuff. Great help at the stores too.

Todd,

When you got yours at Autozone, did it have the reserviour attached?

AutoZone called the manufacturer on my behalf Friday. They are shipping Autozone another pump, this time with a reservoir (albeit not connected). I'll let you know when I actually have it in hand. FWIW, Autozone recommended the addition of a PS filter. $17 and a special order later, I have an American Remanufacturers Inc inline 3/8" filter with a "deluxe" 3/8 nipple (no jokes, please), part #2210. Seems pretty basic for $17, but if it does the job and prevents me from having to replace all of this stuff again, I am all for it.

I haven't made it to a local hydraulic hose shop for them to re-create my high pressure hose, but I plan to do that next.

lex4me--

i am very much interested in what ur hydraulic hose shop comes up with

re duplicating ur hi press hose...$ wise.

this is an expensive oem item and if they can repair/re-create/duplicate

whatever the hose for minimum bucks, it would be a big savings for a lot

of folks who go thru the ps repair fiasco if a hose is truly needed.

please post back when u get the 'hose shop' report.

Can't understand the filter anyway?? A screen is in the resv. and a screen is on the solenoid valve. Are you sure you are not pole-vaulting over rat-tur_s???

:D

Haven't been able to work on the car for a week and a half since I was out of town. Back in the saddle again now, though. I'll let the list know how the hydraulic hose co does with fabricating a new high pressure line for me. On the replacement filter, I suppose that $17 for an extra inline filter that is easily replaced is cheap insurance. Thanks to this list, I learned about the solenoid filter just tonight - the solenoid needs to come off of the old rack and onto the new one from AutoZone - I would have installed it without cleaning this screen and instantly had crud in my system. Cruising this list is time well spent.
