It has a brand new power steering pump put on. All fluids are full as they should be. We are still having power steering issues. If it's not the pump itself causing the problems then its the thingamajig that's connected to it. But i'm not exactly sure what it is called. Can you help please?

Hey SABRINAMAGEE,

Did you bleed the system after replacing the power steering pump?

You need to fill the reservoir, start the vehicle and whilst you get someone to turn the steering from lock to lock top up the fluid. By lock to lock I mean from the left end stop all the way to the right end stop. You keep turning the wheel back and forth to the end stops to bleed the air out of the system.

What are the issues you are having with the power steering?
Has there been any change with the new pump?

The power steering system comprises of a reservoir, pump and power steering rack. Hydraulic lines connect these components.

Regards, Joe

Did you perform the initial operation procedure? Meaning did you get the air out of the system when you put the pump on it? I attached the procedure. Just make sure you lift the wheels off the ground when doing it as it says or you will damage something due to the excess load on the system.

If this is not the issue, what exactly is the system doing? Maybe get a video of the issue and that could help if it is difficult to explain. Thanks
