I have a 2003 Honda CRV and I recently changed my power steering pump, now the steering is extremely hard, and can only turn if vehicle is moving. What is causing this problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

Try bleeding the system by turning lock to lock about 3 times. If not, then the rack may have failed

If pump is rebuilt or used, it could be bad. Check the reservoir for clogging.
Was problem there before replacement of the pump?

Hello, mine was failing so I replaced it with a used one, however the hard steering problem began and then replaced it with a new one and still same problem with hard steering. I also notice that the pressure hose isn't even moving with fluid when being engaged.

Suspect debris in used pump may have entered system. Disconnect return line and with a container to catch fluid and fluid on hand. Start move steering wheel if fluid comes out keep it up adding to resivor when comes out clear. Stop reconnect and then try steering
