Steering problem
1999 Chevy Suburban V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 132000 miles

I turned the whell all the way to the left to bleed the front calipers and now the wheel is hard to turn. At first it was hard to turn the right to bleed the other side but now it is hard to turn in any direction. Can, t drive it.

Do you

Does it have power steering fluid in it? When turning the wheel and its hard, does the power steering pump whine like its struggling? If it does not whine then the pump shaft probably broke and you need to replace the pump. I have seen it alot of this truck and was not caused by something that you did.

You were absalutly right! It is the pump shaft that it broken. How do I remove this EVO sensor from the back of the pump? I am down to just that in order to replace the pump itself.
