You're going to have to bleed the system alot on those trucks. Just remove the return line and have an assistant turn the steering wheel back and forth just enough to engage the pump and filling the resevour while doing this. Keep bleeding until you have a good flow of P/S fluid out with no air bubbles. This can take a while.

SOURCE: Location of power steering pump
Usually they are located near or part of the power steering reservoir. Look for the cap to fill the power steering with fluid the pump should be underneath.

Remove low pressure and high pressure hoses (this one could be hard to break loose). You might want to have an oil pan handy, to capture the oil. Disconnect electrical sensor. Remove the bolt that holds belt tension adjustment plate. And finally remove the bolt that holds the pump in place. It is bolted from the back and located at the right lower corner of the pump if you are facing the front of the car. Remove the pump assy. I could not remove belt pulley at home, no matter how hard I tried. Ended up taking it to an automotive shop and they removed it in no time, using one of those "pneumatic impact guns". Assemble new pump. Fill the reservoir with PS oil. Make sure both of the front wheels are off the ground, start the engine and slowly spin the steering wheel back and forth for about 5 minutes or untill screeching sound stops and the liquid in the reservoir stops foaming. That will bleed any air that is in the system. Don't go all the way to the end of stroke. Good luck.

jack up the back of the car a high as you can,support with stands,purchase high pressure fuel line tool a local parts store,about 12 bucks.use a floor jack with a 2'x2' piece of plywood to suppport the weight better,remove the two long straps holding it up,one bolt on each,toward the front of the car,lower just enough to get at the fuel line connections,use the tool to unlock the special clips,you can also use a couple of scribes,or small flat screwdrivers,to get them apart,disconnect the fill tube,the hose that you put gas in the car from.might have to open the gas flap,remove cap,if there is screws or bolts take them out,unplug the wire harness going to the fuel pump on the top of the tank,everything should be un-hooked,just slowley lower it down,and pull it out the back on the jack,the less fuel in it the the easier it is ,i have a 2000 lumina,same engine,doesnt even look like you have to touch the exaust at all,should be the same as yours,un-hook the negative battery cable before you start just to be safe,hope this helps
