No I do not believe it does, the belt tensioner I was is good. The protective guard under the engine I was told is in good condition. I am about to the belt tensioner replaced, unless you had any other thoughts.

If the belt doesn't slip then that's strange you only loose power steering when it rains?When the steering is inop you will have to have a power steering tester hooked up to it. That will test pump flow pressure etc. To pin point if it's the rack pump hose etc.
