How do i add the power steering fluid in the engine?


Buy the fluid at Autozone and ask them to add for you. Usually they will and show you where the fill port is. Power steering fluid should be replaced every 75K miles. Usually you can buy an inexpensive turkey baster and use it to remove old power steering fluid from the reservoir and replace it, (always use synthetic transmission fluid vs non synthetic) I find using about an ounce or two of Z-max transmission treatment added to the fluid extends pump life.

Hard to steer 2000 Dodge Neon but belt is okay


Check to see if you enough Steering Fluid. If the fluid was recently flushed, make sure they put right kind of fluid. I once had my fluid replace and they topped it with the wrong spec fluid. Had to reflush and put the correct fluid. Belt will usually make noise, not cause the steering to stiffen up. Hope this helps, let us know if a better answer comes along.

Have a very slow power steering fluid leak. thoughts as to where it could it be leaking from?


The top of your power steering pump where the steering arm via ujoint is a seal, otherwise known as the power steering top seal is most likely seeping out, see if you can wipe it really good and trying driving it some, and then wipe it again, if fluid on top in, seal needs replacing, also check housenthatngo down to your steering area for leaks. Let me know, thanks Mike

Show me how to replace power steering pressure hose on 1995 GMC Yukon


It's very easy, undo screw one end from back of power steering pump, no need to remove pump, and unscrew other end of hose from steering gear box, replace hose and top off with power steering fluid, when you undo power steering hose have a pan to catch the power steering fluid that will drip out.

I had a leak in the pressure line of my power steering. I changed the line, and now it is making a burping noise even after the line has been bled out. What could be wrong?


hi make sure the steering fluid is topped up correctly then work the steering wheel from left to right going all the way to full lock do this for a couple of minutes keeping an eye on the fluid level and top up as needed if after doing this your still hearing funny noises from the steering then this is a good sign their is a damaged seel in the steering rack this would need checking to ensure this was the fault before replacing any parts.

ensure the fluid is topped up correctly then work the steering form lock to lock whilst the engine is running top up fluid as needed

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

After I replaced the power steering pump and reservoir on my 2002 Jeep, I still get air in the system. Where could it be coming from?


Your problem could be a pressure side hose that has a rupture that only leaks in extreme conditions. Inspect to replace with new to repair problem. First make sure you have removed the pump caps off of the hose fittings. If ok, it appears you may have a stuck valve in the rack assembly. Replacing the rack should solve your problem. ------- The new pump should be self-bleeding by turning the wheels left and right. Let sit over night to release air bubbles, recheck fluid level.------ Check the tension of the drive belts on the pump, as they may be loose. The power steering pump and reservoir is located on the front of the engine driven by one of the fan belts. There is a removable cap on the top with a dipstick attached. With the engine off, fill this up to the full mark with power steering fluid. Replace the cap, start the engine and check for leaks. On the back of the pump are two hoses either one could be leaking. REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1. Wipe the power steering cap and area free of dirt. Remove the power steering cap.

2. Use a siphon pump to remove as much fluid as possible from the power steering fluid reservoir.

3. With a helper in the vehicle, raise the vehicle on an appropriate hoist.

WARNING :POWER STEERING FLUID, ENGINE PARTS, AND THE EXHAUST SYSTEM MAY BE EXTREMELY HOT IF THE ENGINE HAS BEEN RUNNING. DO NOT START ENGINE WITH ANY LOOSE OR DISCONNECTED HOSES. DO NOT ALLOW HOSES OR POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOUCH HOT EXHAUST MANI FOLD OR CATALYST.
4. Locate the power steering cooler attached to the crossmember support plate. Slide back the clamp and disconnect one of the two power steering return hoses at the power steering oil cooler and drain fluid in an appropriate container.
5. Have the helper turn the steering wheel back and forth quickly several times to force as much fluid as possible from the steering gear.
6. Reconnect the hose at the oil cooler using the original clamp.
7. Lower vehicle so the vehicle tires are not contacting the ground.
9. For proper fluid fill and bleeding air from the power steering system:

a. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range using Mopar power steering fluid (ATF+4) p/n 05013458AA.

b. With the engine OFF and the vehicles tires off the ground, slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth (lock to lock) slowly 20 times to force fluid into the steering gear.

c. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range.

d. Start engine and let run for a few seconds, then turn oft engine.

e. Check fluid level and add if necessary.

f. Start engine, and slowly turn the steering wheel lightly contacting the left and right stops.

g. Stop the engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

h. Lower vehicle, start engine and slowly turn steering wheel lock-to-lock.

I. Stop engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

j. If fluid is extremely foamy, allow vehicle to stabilize a few minutes, then repeat steps "i" and "j" until the fluid level remains constant after running the engine and turning the steering wheel from lock to lock.

10. Inform the vehicle owner/operator that a steering vibration may be noted for a few hundred miles until the air is completely removed from the steering system.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
