What you have to do is jack vehicle up and remove line where you repair it. Start it up and move thewheel back and forth all the way. This will take many turns of the wheel to completly bleed system but it will work the van in question is working fine now.I'm sorry you guys didn't get to my question but it's okay now. You now know what to tell anyone with this problem. Thankyou Tom Action

What you did is SOP whenever you have to open up the hydraulic system of the power steering for just about every car. Even without hydro boost brakes.
