    Since we replaced the engine the transmission at low RPM's shifts rough and finally the check engine light has come on(transmission malfunction). Any thoughts to this problem. Did not have any transmission problems before replacement. Is it a computer problem...such as computer trying to reset itself with replacement engine?

Let it sit with the engine off. this will help the air bubble seperate from the fluid. With the reservoir full (using only hoda/acura specific P/S fluid), the engine off and the front wheels off the ground turn the steering wheel full left and full right several times while keeping an eye on the fluid level. Then start the engine and let it idle. Eventually the rest of the air will work its way out. Heavily cavitated fluid will take some time.

You can also add about an ounce of Seafoam Motor Tune to the P/S fluid. This will help remove the air bubbles from the system.

What is cause of power steering noise from ford galaxy


Check your fluid level first. If the fluid is low it will cause the power steering pump to make noise. Moore noticeable when in parking lots and driving in the city where you are making a lot of turns. Look for leaks. If you fill the power steering resivor to the proper level and the fluid leaks and you can not see the leak it may be your steering rack. The fluid leaks into the boots and sometimes goes un -detected. You can poke a small hole in the bottom of the boots and see if fluid leaks out. If so the steering rack is leaking and should be replaced

Where is the bleeder screw for a 1989 silverado/power steering


I'm not sure i understand what your asking exactly ...There is no bleeder on the power steering .
Just fill the reservoir on the pump and turn the wheels back and forth with the lid off and burp the air out and top it off as needed.

One possibility is that the steering rack needs to be replaced. If it is binding up, it takes more work for the power steering pump and puts an extra burden on the pump. Since you have replaced it twice, this seems very likely.

Whenever I turn my steering wheel left to right it makes a noise


hallo
if power steering fluid is bubbly, means that its sucking air somewhere before(sucking side) (or on) power steering pump. that would explain the noise. Check (when cold) fluid level. if level is low, top up before starting the car. had a lot of cars that high preasure hose was leacking fluid on restricting valve. if so, fluid comes out on the end of protecting cover of the hose. (driver side on spark plugs and down the engine). replace hose with original. do not try to make it your self, becouse steering wheel will shake, sinse restracting valve is missing.
But if you press brake pedal, that has nothing to do with it.

Hello hummelsautob.
Changing the power steering cooler can't allow air into the brake system. Two different fluid systems.
Your F250 has it's brake assist powered by the power steering pump.
Instead of using a vacuum assist it uses the hydraulic power from the pump.
When refilling your pump you have gotten air mixed in with the fluid. This turns it into a consistency something like whipped cream.
When in this state it isn't effective. Let it sit for a couple hours and let the air bubble out of the fluid. Recheck your level after this as it will drop.
This will make your brakes feel normal again.
Just a note on adding fluid to an empty power steering pump.
Add fluid to the reservoir but not to the top, turn the steering wheel back and forth slowly with the engine off. This will keep the fluid from foaming.

My power steering pump makes a growling noise even when the car is idle. The noise is louder when I turn the steering wheel. The power steering fluid has gotten low a couple of times and gets foamy.


if gets low definitely a leak foam is pump mixing fluid with air roar is pump cavitation check lines or pump for leak keep fluid at recommended level air bound unit can cause steering difficulty and or failure if need have trained mech look into problem

2003 expedition replaced p/s pump and steering rack. it is still hard to initiate a turn in either direction regardless of speed


raise the truck up and turn the wheels left to right, you most likely have air in the lines.
