Re: 3408 power steering pump nut fell off the pump and is gone

If the nut falls all the way to the oil pan, it will be OK. However, if it gets caught higher up in the engine, it could get lodged in the gear train and maybe do some serious damage. I'd drain the oil first and use a long magnet through the drain plug hole to try to retrieve it.

3408 power steering pump nut fell off the pump and is gone

Should I worry about the nut being gone or does it fall into the base ?
