SOURCE: How to diagnose 1999 Pontiac Grand Am Power steering problems

it could still be the pump is it making a whining noise,and does the fluid smell really burnt.jack the car up and put it on jack stands set the e-brake and chock the rear tires so it can not roll,then start the car and see if there is any binding the the steering rack if there is you will notice a small jump to the rack as the wheel is turned,or a shifting on the mounting bolts that hold the rack to the cross member.If the car goes down the road fine with out a bunch of shacking or wobbling then I think I would replace the pump and have the system thoroughly flushed.I hope this helps

How do you bleed power steering fluid


Never known a vehicle to need bleeding of the power steering system - it's self bleeding because it is an open fluid circuit.
BUT - you can make sure you get all the air out of the rack simply by cycling the steering wheels all the way to the right until you hear the pump groan, then all the way to the left, then back and forth a few more times. If there is any air in the steering rack, this should force it out.

How do i bleed my power steering rack on subaru legacy rs turbo


if its been a week, there should no tbe any air. if its heavy, the rack could be bad, or weak pump????? any noises? air will usually cause a whiney noise, and there will be air whipped, foamy fluid in the pump. A pump pressure regulator could be stuck open, not allowing full pressure? I would have a shop diagnose it, tell them the history and see if they can find a cause.

Power steering makes loud noise after driving for 30 minutes or so. it makes noise every time you turn the wheel but not really a squealing more of a whinning. Do I need a power steering rack?


If the rack is accessible you could try to bleed the rack lines to get fresh fluid to the rack. Sometimes this helps. If not accessible or bleeding doesn't help Yes the rack is due for replacement.
