Vane pump 

  • The vane pump in a Jeep is usually located in the power steering system. It is responsible for providing hydraulic pressure to the power steering rack, which in turn helps you steer the vehicle more easily
  • The pump is typically driven by a belt that is connected to the engine’s crankshaft.
  • A vane pump is a positive displacement pump that uses a set of vanes installed on a rotor to transfer fluid. It has the ability to deliver a constant flow rate under different pressure conditions
  • When the water hits the vanes, these vanes convert the K.E of the water into speed and send it toward the diffuser or volute casing area
