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: chevy steering wheel controls

You first have to disarm and remove the air bag (unscrews with bolts from behind the steering wheel) and then you will see the screws for the switches. Only the silverado awitches will work.

Steering fluid leak; oil covering steering gear box


if the leak is coming from the steering box there are usually only 3 places it can come from;most common place is the pitman shaft seal,which can be replaced.this is were the pitman arm of the steering connects to the steering box.another place is the steering box input shaft seal,this is were the steering colume connects to the steering box,which can be replace.the last place is the power steering hoses were they connect to the steering box.there are seals that seal the lines when screwed into the box which can also be replaced.so first you need to see exactly were the leak is coming from.rare occasions the steering box is porous which means the box will need replacing.a car of this age should have shown up long ago.you will have to clean the box off at the car wash then run the car and turn the steering wheel all the way to one side,this will build up pressure in the system to show up the leak quicker.

My 2003 chevy silverado is leaking transmission fluid between the engine and the transmission what could be the problem thank you


Probably the front seal on the transmission between the input shaft and the torque convertor but it could be the pump seal. Either way, the transmission has to be removed to repair it.

The Duramax trucks by Chevy and GMC use Hydro-Boost brakes, meaning that they use a hydrolic pump for the brakes and the steering. GM has had real trouble with leaky Hydrlic hoses on all their trucks for a few years (like my truck) for leaking coolant lines from the trans and as I found out today during my oil change, coming from the hydro-boost. These are replacable, but not under warrenty for you or me.

Power steering leak on a 1988 full size bronco


The gear box is a common problem on this model. That would be the place I would start. A cheap, temporary fix is to go to your local parts store and ask for Lucas Power Steering Stop-Leak. It will buy you some time.
