Why is power steering fluid spewing out of the cap after replacing bad leaking power steering pump


You have Air in the Power steering System and it needs to be bleed out, And to do this if you Jack the two front wheels off the ground and Let them Hang free so there is No Load on the steering at all. please put some type of stands under the car, You will need more power steering fluid but before you add this you need to start your Car and turn the steering Wheel Slow from left to Right a few times, You will hear a wearing Notice come from the pump and you will see more fluid come out of the pump as well, that is the air trying to bleed its self out. The fluid coming out will be air rated lots of bubbles in it, Now that you have done this the Noise from the pump should start to go quite at this Point you can start to Add the New power steering fluid slow to the reservoir and keep turning the steering wheel from left to right slow (Never Fast but slow ) Have a lot of rags to clean the Mess. Hope this helps you. :)

to bleed power steering, with front wheels off ground slightly with front wheels pointing straight ahead.engine off. remove power steering filler cap.add power steering until fluid level stop dropping,wait couple minutes and wait, add fluid until level stay at full cold mark on power steering cap dip stick. dont over fill.when fluid level stop dropping, start vechicle,let it idle few minutes. see if fluid level drop if so add more fluid full cold mark.then turn steering all the way to left and right with out hitting a stop.turn steering wheel several times, then turn front wheels pointing forward check power steering fluid level.if power steering fluid level stop dropping air should be out of system, if steering turning wheel dont turn smoothly and power steering fluid look light tan color air getting in the system.check all power steering lines to rack and power steering pump for leaks.be sure you replaced all the power steering lines with new o rings if not you will get a leak.if you find a leak, you need to fix the leak and bleed system again.dont drive vechicle if your steering dont feel right,have vechicle towed to a garage.

Fuel is leaking from the van redish orenge and this happen while i was trying to get out of my drive way. My steering wheel do not stop turning so I take it is my power steering. It may be something else


The redish orenge liquid you see is likely power steering fluid.

The power steering circuit is leaking somewhere.

Inspect/have the circuit inspected looking for busted hose, loose clamps or steering rack leaking.

Depending if the leak is severe or not you can try to add power steering oil in your power steering reservoir up to the right level indicated on the stick. Put the cap in place, start the engine and turn you steering wheel few times gently going from one extremity to the other and reversely. After few times you should/could have recuperated power. However, eventhough it works, for your safety fix the problem as soon as possible.
Hope it will help

Power steering 2002 Jeep Liberty


Remove the clamped on hose on the pump (not the one with the pressure fitting), drain into a pan below the vehicle. Replace hose and refill, run and turn steering wheel all the way in both directions (to purge air in system). Do not permit system to run low so add fluid after each time wheel is turned, as needed You cannot remove all the fluid so it is good to repeat this procedure twice. Use a good quality fluid. You don't need much, (usually a quart or less) so price should not be an issue. After your'e finished, drive and re-check level and check for leaks if any.
