SOURCE: power steering line retun keeps coming off in cold weather

If it is the line that goes from tranny to radiator you do not need a powersteering pump It could be the wrong type of hose being used and get better clamps. Double check weather its the transmission cooler line or the power steering, Big differance

SOURCE: Power steering pump still leaks after putting new one in.

the bubbles are just air in the system, it will eventualy go away. are you sure the leak is from the pump or is it just comming out the cap because of the air. also did you chk. the pressure line? that maybe where your leak is. unless you got a crack in the resavor, its most likely the pressure line. there is a pressure line and a return line.

SOURCE: new power steering pump put in, lines bleed, and still having whinning noise. Is there another part with the power steering pump we can check?

are you sure the noise is comming from pump and not the belt tension pulley right next to it ?

I use a wiffle ball bat with both end caps cut off (hollow tube) held to my ear to help localize noises on running engines I have even found tricky intake vac leaks with that trick

Getting ready to put new power steering pump on, but forgot to flush system, and can't find a line to Drane, So with out damaging the new one, HOW do I flush the system...??

Disconnect the return line from the pump and let it hang into a drain container. Start the vehicle and turn the wheel, this will evacuate old fluid into container. Stop engine and fill the reservoir with new fluid and repeat, this will flush the system. Reconnect the return line to the pump and add new fluid. Start the vehicle and turn the wheel slowly until its easy to turn and you don't hear any noise from the pump; this evacuates any air from the system

I changed the power sterring pump blead the system. I still dont have power.. What to look 4 next

What is year--make--model?
Usually with new pump, I rotate the old fluid out while putting new fluid in, that goes with the power steering pump change.
I take the return line loose from pump that should be low pressure line, usually held on with hose clamp. The high pressure line should have threaded fitting.
Aim the return line into container, turn pulley with my fingers, the old fluid should come out return line. At the same time, you have to add new fluid to the pump reservoir. When the fluid from the return line runs clear/new fluid, your done.
If no circulation, maybe a faulty or clogged power steering line?

Power steering fluid leaking

It's either a power steering return line or a pressure line.

You need to have it in the air to diagnose definitively but the rule of thumb is that if it's leaking and the puddle is in front of the passenger tire then it's a return line or cooler, if it's behind the tire then it's the other side of the return line, or a pressure line.

Either way get it changed before you break the power steering pump which isn't cheap. Also, stop leak ruins the pump so don't put any of that in there, just get it fixed soon.

Loud whining noise sometimes after driving for a

Not really expensive just messy to repair. Return lines (low pressure) are much more common and they travel along the frame rail on the right side of the subframe from the power steering rack to the cooler line in front of the radiator. The high pressure line starts at the pump and travels over the top of the motor to the back side (it's a thick line with a big banjo bolt at the pump). They go too but less frequently.

If it's the return line and not the pressure line you can cut it and put some rubber hose from the parts store over the cut part with a couple clamps and that'll hold you for quite a while till you can get the line and get it installed.

The return line, done correctly, can be a bit of a bear on the ground but it's fairly quick in the air on a lift at a garage. The pressure line isn't too bad and can be undertaken by the home mechanic.
