Question about Cars & Trucks
Replaced steering gear box and I have air in system. How do I bleed the system? My Mechanic said it would work it self out?
Hi Info, With wheels on ground and NOT propped at all, turn the steering wheel to full left lock, hold it for no more than four seconds and then turn to full right lock. Holding the wheel at full lock for an extended time will overheat the fluid and damage the steering pump and box. Repeat the procedure until the steering becomes light on both left and right turns.

If you make sure your fluid lvl is topped off and start the truck up, turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and hold it there for a few seconds then go all of the way to the right and hold it there for a few seconds. Repeat this a few times and it should work all of the air out of the system. You will probably need to check the fluid level a few times as when it burps the air out the fluid lvl will naturally drop.

have you tried bleeding the system with the engine running and turning full lock both ways? also inspect the belt make sure its tight enough
also make sure that you do not have a leak in one of the lines etc.

SOURCE: Power Steering pump replacement
if you have power stering oil in it its normal for the pump to be noisy its air that make that noise continue to drive air will come out by itself after a few kilometer it will go away if you have enough oil thanks pierre

SOURCE: bleeding the cluch pedal
Open the slave cylinder bleeder and let it gravity feed for 5 minutes or so, then close the bleeder and have someone pump the pedal, release the bleeder to remove trapped air, repeat as needed until all the air is gone and pedal is firm with no play.

Adjust your rear brake shoes. Then rebleed the system. Start at the master cylinder Bleed master first then the wheel furthest away from the master (right rear then left rear then right front then left front. Do that and your pedal should be good.

I just found 1 of my power steering leaks in my 1990 toy pickup. My high pressure line has a hole in it. I used a florecent die kit to locate the leak. You can get it at Autozone.
