Leave the cap on the pump
Pull the injector fuse & turn motor over,
that's it.
Still tight-- then you have to check for ball joints,
or steering rack
Should be changing power steering fluid every 3 years,
as well as transmission or they both fail

SOURCE: 2004 f350 power steering problem.

2006 f350 crew 4x4. Replaced p/s pump,booster,put gauges to check pressure? Fluid clean, lifted in air to check steering linkage and turning without load. Still baffled ! I work at a Ford dealer and mechanics said its normal. Thats BS! I replaced the p/s pump so im guessing the screen was new with the pump. I will check for the hell of it. I have a feeling it is suspension under load. The symptom on this truck is not turning when brake applied. Also hard turning when vehicle is on and in park,wont turn.

Where do you bleed the air of power steering on 2008 f150


In order to remove air from the power steering, run the vehicle with the power steering cap off and turn the steering wheel back and forth. This will purge the air from the system.

Power steering not working on my 1992 SVX Li


I had an SVX, and loved it! Had to replace the power steering pump too, but I found that until I did a really thorough flush that it still didn't work right. Jack the front wheels off the ground. Have a helper get in the car to start it and turn the wheel back and forth. Before starting it, disconnect the low-pressure return hose from the pump and put the end of it into a bucket. Be ready with a couple of quarts of ATF fluid (you don't need to use power steering fluid.) Start the car and pour fresh fluid into the pump while the steering wheel is being turned all of the way back and forth a couple of times. Don't let the fluid level get down to where it pumps any air! Shut it off just before you finish pouring in the second quart of ATF. Reconnect the low pressure hose, run it again and adjust the fluid level. This worked for me - the steering operated like new. Good luck.

Jack the front up put it on supports. Then make sure there is fluid in resivore. Start turning wheels back and forth all the way from stop to ststop. It sounds like air to me. Leave the cover off have a buddy look in while you go back and forth if you see bubbles then keep going.

Power steering whine


The bubbles are more or less normal.
I would want to know for sure the noise is coming from the pump and not another pulley on the engine. When you turn the wheels you put load on the pump and the drive belt which loads the other pulleys too.
How about taking a long piece of heater hose and using it to listen around the belt while a helper turns the steering wheel ?

My power steering was bone dry


Lacking power may mean a burned out pump but whine is caused by air in the pump. A mechanic had me jack up the front end of my van after I refilled the reservoir on the power steering. He said to turn the steering wheel from stop to stop back and forth at least 120 times to work the air out of the pump. Afterwards it seemed to work ok but still had a whine until I got rid of it.

2000 F150 Hard to steer, changed pump problem still there.


When ever you open up the lines to the power steering pump, there is a procedure you have to do to take the air out of the system, you have t raise your truck off the ground put it on jack stands, turn motor on and turn the wheels right and left and apply fluid to your pump as needed do this about 7 or 8 times, then put it back on the ground and if the air is out of the system, your power steering should return back to normal. you don't have to put it in gear when you raise it, so long as you can turn your steering freely to the right and left all the way. good luck!

How do i change a power steering pump on a 2004 ford f 150 5.4 4x4


p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; }


Follow this steps


The items you will need include basic hand tools, shop rags, gloves, drip pan, fluid suction gun, power steering pump pulley removal tool, power steering pump pulley installation tool, power steering fluid, and a Haynes manual.


Use a suction gun to remove the power steering fluid.


Position a drip pan under the pump and disconnect the high pressure line and fluid return hose. Cap the ends of the lines.


Loosen the serpentine belt and slip it out of the power steering pump pulley. Replace any worn belts at this time.


Remove the bolts and nuts that hold the pump onto the engine.


Remove the pump. Now remove the pulley from the pump. To do this, use a power steering pump pulley removal tool. If you don't have one, you can rent one from Advance Auto Parts.


Remove the nuts to detach the pump from the brackets.


Reattach the bracket to the new pump. Reinstall the pulley.


Bolt the pump back into place. Slip the belt back onto the pulley and retighten. Reattach the high pressure line and return fluid hose.


Now fill the power steering fluid reservoir until it reaches to the proper level. Now start the vehicle. Recheck the fluid and add if necessary. Turn the wheels left and right a couple of times. So that's it, you are done. Test the vehicle to make sure it functions properly.

Power steering quit and so did power brakes. Vacuum?


Yea I worked for Ford and have seen this before. Your pump is cavatating. It has air somewhere in the system. Ford pumps are known for being noisy. To get the air out correctly you have to jack the front tires off the ground and while the engine is on turn the steering back and fourth with the cap of the pump. You need to get a small bottle of Fords Friction Modifier and put it in this pump after you get the air out. If your truck has Hydraboost steering then the hydraboost could have a bad seal init allowing the pressure to go backwards through the system. The Hydraboost system is easy to distinguish because it has hoses that go up and attach to the brake booster system. Some trucks came with these and some did not. Hope this helped.
