Power steeing pump problem

I have a 2000 Saturn LS1. A while back the steering pump piston pushed out the keeper ring. I have reset the piston and keeper ring. Now after putting it back together, the power steering fluid is not circulating and is acting like the pump is not even working at all now. Do you have to prime the hoses?

How to install a power steering high pressure line on a 1998 olds 88 regency

You will need line wrenches to get the line off the steering gear assembly (tight in there near the frame sub assembly) First you will want to remove the drive belt from the power steering pump. Then remove the bolts from pump to bracket and lift pump up. On back of pump, remove low pressure line and drain fluid into a container. Under pump, remove high pressure line, and push it downward toward floor. From under car, follow the line to the steering gear, ( the line may have a keeper clamp or two for stationary support to remove along the way) then detach. Installation is reverse of disassembly........Not fun, but doable.....Mike

My 04 volvo xc90 leaking power steering fluid at night

I have the same problem with 05 XC90 2.5T.. It seems like there is a problem with the power steering pump. And the only way to fix it is to change the pump. Now i'm trying to use the lucas stop leaking thing as well and will see what happens.

Power steeing fluid leaks

try replacing the o ring or use double o rings between the reservoir and pump, pressure builds from use and the fluid blows out of this o ring even after the vehicle is off. When the dealer replaces the pump they re-use the reservoir and o ring so the problem does not get fixed. The fluid runs down the pump and the lines to the rack, instead of washing the engine and observing where the fluid is leaking from, they replace good parts until they find the problem. Sometimes one o ring isn't enough.
