Hi,
I have three problems :-
1. Over heating. I have clean the radiator and changed the fan and hoses but that still hasn't solve the problem.

2. Power steering hard. I have changed the power steering pump and bleed the system several times but that still hasn't solved the problem.

3. Brake problem. When I travel long distance, especially going down hills, my brakes tends to smell and does not hold properly. Although I usually back down to low gear.

A. Can you tell me the proper procedures in bleeding the sterring pump, over heating and the brake?Thank you in anticipation of your help.

Pressure test the cooling system if OK, then waterpump is suspect.
Is car actaully overheating, steam, coolant leak, or is gauge in red?

If power steering pump is new and you have bled system (system will purge air itself). Then most likely there is a rack seal leaking. Remove PS cap, SLOWLY turn wheel laft and right until all air bubbles are out.

Raise car, put on stands and check brakes, front rotors, calipers and rear drums, shoes.
