SOURCE: how do i bleed air from power steering pump from

Vehicle cold. Power Steering pump full to the Cold mark. Power Steering cap on. Start the vehicle, turn the wheels hard left, (When it touches the wheel stop, and you hear a groan, don't hold it there!), then turn the wheels hard right. Do this a number of times. 6 to 7.
Vehicle off. Wait two minutes, then check the fluid level. Reinstall the cap, drive the vehicle around.

Sometimes it's real hard to get the air out. I have had some vehicles that I did the above, then had to let them sit overnight. The next morning I drove the vehicle again, and finally all the air was worked out.

The Solenoid fitted on the Steering Rack is not getting the command from The Body Control Unit. Kindly Replace your BCM and then your problem is solved. You can try to make sure by giving direct current of 12v to the solenoid and check the Steering. if it works then simply change the BCM as it's not giving d command to the Solenoid. Salman EiD

Brakes had power steering fluid


Power steering should still work fine. I would say there is still air in the line, or it is bypassing inside the master cylinder.

My 01 Olds Alero was leaking power steering fluid really bad, changed power steering pump, then realized my rack pinion was leaking also, changed it. I still have no power assist in steering. I've


alot of the time bleeding the system is required when that much fluid has been lost, you have air trapped in the lines. to do this i jack the front end of the car up enough the tires are not touching the ground, remove the p/s cap and turn your wheels all the way to the left and back to the right and eventually pressure will come back check your fluid level every ten turns or so, your level will go down due to the air being purged out. dont do it to fast but not too slow just take your time the last truck i did this too it took me a total of 30 times left and right.. GOOD LUCK!

more than likely it is just low on power steering fluid. system might have air in it now. so after fill power steering unit to proper level driver the car and check fluid level again. and add more if needed . I believe car should have motor running for when checking fluid, same as transmission.
