2001 Chevy Tahoe V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
When my Tahoe sets for 8 or more hours it is hard to turn the steering wheel until it has been running for 2 - 4 minutes. Worse when it is cold outside. When I turn the steering wheel the pump makes noise. I replaced the power steering unit with no change. I have checked the fluid level many times and it is always at the full level. When I jack my Tahoe up and turn the steering wheel with the engine on or off it turns very easy. Could my original pump be bad and the replacement also bad? Any test a weekend mechanic can do at home? All suggestins are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lew
