    Jack up the front of the truck, with the wheels off the ground, fill the reservoir, slowly turn the wheel lock to lock with the engine running.
    That should do it.

Sometimes if you turn it all the way in one direction and hold it there a few minute then very slowly turn it all the way the other direction and hold it there again a few minutes it allows the bubbles work there way out

I replaced the power steering pump on my 2004 ford f150 and jacked the truck up in the air and with the cap off I turned the wheels back and forth to bleed. the steering is still tight is there a bleeder...


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

Rear caliper on 2005 Ford F150 not releasing, replaced both rear calipers, now pedal goes to the floor - no brakes at all. What can/should i do?


Sounds like it still has some air in the system or a bad master cylinder. First try bleeding all air, there is definitely some air left in the lines and this is most probably causing the problem. Bled the lines at the bleeder screws on the calipers. ---------- There is air left in the brake line.Any time the brake system is opened to replace brake lines, caliper, pads etc etc.Mostly the air enters the system, and that air has to be completely bleed.Otherwise the same symptoms , what you are getting will be noticed.-------- Brakes can be bled manually, with a power bleeder, injector tool or vacuum bleeder.IIt does not make any difference which method you use as long as all the lines and components are flushed with enough fluid to remove any trapped air bubbles or air pockets.----
The most common bleeding procedure is to bleed the brake furthest from the master cylinder first, then bleed the other brake that shares the same hydraulic circuit (which may be the other rear brake on a rear-wheel drive car or truck, or the opposite front brake on a front-wheel drive car or minivan). After these have been bled, you then bleed the other brake circuit starting with the furthest brake from the master cylinder.--------- When the complete air is bleed from the line, the brake should be firm when car is on.In your case brake brake pedal is loose and goes almost to the floor when car is ON.This is due to Air in the line.Get the complete air bleed from brake line.------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech

Changed both front (rears are drums and did not change) brake calibers and pads on my 1998 F150 pickup 2 wheel drive. In doing so I let the master cylinder go empty. How do I bleed the brakes now. I have...


your probably going to have to bleed the entire system.1st try & bleed the master cyl.
basicly the same as you would bleed the front/rear brakes. pump pedal & hold while someone
loosen the brake line on the master cyl. after m/c is bleed move to r/r,l/r,r/f,l/f wheels in
that order. if you have abs brakes & you got air in the pump a scan tool may be needed
to bleed properly.

Steering went stiff very suddenly on 2000 F-150. Auto store ''experts'' say it is the power steering pump. Need a schematic to replace it and instructions on bleeding air from the lines after...


PS pumps are pretty straight forward. You don't have to worry about bleeding the lines. Just replace the pump, fill reservoir to full mark on dip stick, start engine. Run steering wheel from lock to lock, check oil level. Repeat until oil level remains at the mark.

1992 ford f150 4by4 power steering only easy to the left hard to the right already replaced the pump and believe i've bled all the air from system.


To bleed the right line turn the wheel all the way to the right with the engine running. Once all the way right hold the wheel and shut the engine off. Let it sit for several minutes and restart. See it that does it. If not pop off your center steering link. If the wheel turns super easy in both directions, check front end components.

Power steering leaking through cap.


Too much air in the system. Bleed the lines on the rack &pinion.Have someone turn the wheel while you have the connections loose.Only do one line at a time.

Bleeding power steering pump


The system bleeds its self as it runs, the pump will eventually stop wining once the air is out of the lines.Let the van idle and turn the steering wheel full lock in each direction a couple time to move the fluid through out the system letting out any air.
