SOURCE: power steering hose blew

Generally it should work it's way out by itself, but you can remove air by turning the wheels all the way in one direction (hold it there a few seconds) then repeat in other direction...check fluid level and that's all. If noise lasts more than a few hours, then pump has sustained some damage.

SOURCE: how do i bleed air from power steering pump from

Vehicle cold. Power Steering pump full to the Cold mark. Power Steering cap on. Start the vehicle, turn the wheels hard left, (When it touches the wheel stop, and you hear a groan, don't hold it there!), then turn the wheels hard right. Do this a number of times. 6 to 7.
Vehicle off. Wait two minutes, then check the fluid level. Reinstall the cap, drive the vehicle around.

Sometimes it's real hard to get the air out. I have had some vehicles that I did the above, then had to let them sit overnight. The next morning I drove the vehicle again, and finally all the air was worked out.

SOURCE: changed the power steering pump on 2006 impala and

Start at the crankshaft (bottom pulley) and loop the right side behind the belt tensioner. Match smooth pulleys to the back side of the belt and grooved pulleys to the inside of belt. There should be a pic on a label under the hood also.

Remove cap fill fluid to cold line turn wheels to left stop then right stop do this several times until fluid is no longer foamy. Must be done with cap off to allow air to escape system.

Just keep the fluid level full and the air will bleed out on it's own. Be sure to check the level for the next few weeks to judge the size of the fluid leak present.

How to replace power steering return hose 03 impala


The return pipe is a low pressure pipe so there is no problem replacing it. Just make sure that you note the routing of the belt and the attachment brackets. Do not over tighten the fittings on the new belt. Once changed, fill the reservoir and exercises the steering through several revolutions of the steering to bleed the system.

I replaced the pump on my 2006 impala, and it still whines. we found that there is still ari in the system. when we bleed the air out it stops whinning. but after 10min or less of driving it starts to...


in bleeding the system most say to turn the wheels all the way to the left then to the right. doing this several times until all air is out. if this is what you are doing and it still has air in the system, then it is sucking air somewhere. check all your hose connections.

Replacing power steering pump no power steerins idling


It's air bound, you need to bleed the air out, you do this by letting the car idle and SLOWLY turn the steering lock to lock letting it sit in between for a few monments. If you started it and worked it you foamed the fliud and will take several times- some times it's best to shut off the motor and wait a few min. between bleeding .

Power steering works well but sometimes doesn't work at all


it's been a while since i messed with power steering... check the fluid level ensure it is correct. if so, attempt to bleed the system... air could possibly be causing the problem. to bleed the system turn the wheel to each extreme back and forth a couple of times over. hopefully this will resolve the issue. if not.... best of luck to you...
