the bubbles are just air in the system, it will eventualy go away. are you sure the leak is from the pump or is it just comming out the cap because of the air. also did you chk. the pressure line? that maybe where your leak is. unless you got a crack in the resavor, its most likely the pressure line. there is a pressure line and a return line.

If the pressure hose has a hole in it you will never stop the leak because the fluid can reach 2500 psi. You will have to replace the hose. If the leak is at a fitting you can most likely replace the "o"-ring or washer . Hope this helps.

Replace the ps pump, brake fluid is not a lubricant, your pump is scored, raise the van, block it, remove the sheild, belt and right axle, and remove the pump, you will have to flush the system with 4-5 litres of PS fliud only. GOOD LUCK, RDJRP

Testimonial: "thanks for the feedback, I figured the pump is gone , so it is not worth the efforts to seal eery detail"
Easiest way to bypass a heater core is to disconnect both inlet and outlet hoses at the engine firewall. Install a right angle hose coupling in each hose. Then install a straight piece of hose to connect the two hoses.

the parts store can give you a bigger belt just give them the part# of the belt thats to small which they have a book with the measurements of the belts, tell them you need a belt the same design but 3 inches bigger, its simple, they look in the book and get the belt i do that often at napa auto parts, some part stores have lazy workers, they dont take time to help people, try that, good luck.
