Remove/replace power steering pump on a 2002 Olds alero. Works perfect-except whining noise-after I emptied/refilled the sump with new prestone power steering fliud!


Make sure that u get all the air out by turning the steering wheel from left to right.. And most important make sure the power steering fluid is for GM product.
Hope this helps..
