How to bleed air from power steering 02 kia optima


Make sure there are no leaks in the return hose. If there are leaks in the return line it could be pulling in air and causing the foaming and noise. If there are no leaks you fill the reservoir with power steering fluid and crank the car then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right then all the way to the left a couple of times and that should get rid of all the air in the lines.

You likely have a bad power steering pump or a hose that is leaking. Do not put any fluid other than power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir. if you do you will wreck the hoses and pump. Better not drive it till you get it repaired or you may ruin something else or have an accident.

Hi,i have just bought Audi A496 1.8Ltr and power steering makes whining noise but no leak found,please help,thanks & cheers.


if it is whining -- then this is a sign that you need to add power steering fluid to the reservoir.
there will be a hot and cold line on the small dip stick in the reservoir,, it is best to fill while the system is cold,, fill to the cold line and this should stop the whining.

My power steering pump is making a "whining" noise. Why?


First check and make sure it is not low of fluid. If it is top it off with the correct fluid. If you let it get low it may have air in the system. After topping the reservoir off start the engine and turn the steering wheel fully to the left and right 5 times. This will remove any trapped air. If the whining is still there, you need a new power steering pump as it is defective.

Replacing the power steering pump on a 1998 isuzu rodeo


Remove low pressure and high pressure hoses (this one could be hard to break loose). You might want to have an oil pan handy, to capture the oil. Disconnect electrical sensor. Remove the bolt that holds belt tension adjustment plate. And finally remove the bolt that holds the pump in place. It is bolted from the back and located at the right lower corner of the pump if you are facing the front of the car. Remove the pump assy. I could not remove belt pulley at home, no matter how hard I tried. Ended up taking it to an automotive shop and they removed it in no time, using one of those "pneumatic impact guns". Assemble new pump. Fill the reservoir with PS oil. Make sure both of the front wheels are off the ground, start the engine and slowly spin the steering wheel back and forth for about 5 minutes or untill screeching sound stops and the liquid in the reservoir stops foaming. That will bleed any air that is in the system. Don't go all the way to the end of stroke. Good luck.

Make sure the fluid level is OK, if reservoir MT ad, with out the cap till air comes out and fluid gets in to system, turn the steering right to left wile You add fluid with cap off, till fluid is not longer going down and reservoir inside gets quiet, when fluid level is OK, put cap back and try it, if system did not recovered normality and loud noise comes from the pump, pump needs replacing, if steering is steel hard, no noise comes from pump, look a steering box or steering arms, if truck has Rakenpinon, look for broken boots, pit man arm
