Question about Cars & Trucks
If the fluid bottle was empty the system may require bleeding of the air Which means lifting the steer wheels of the ground and cycling them from left to right,right to left a number of times to remove the trapped air while topping up bottle but dont overfill, there should be a MAX line indicator on bottle. Best of luck if this is your problem.

Where you put the fluid is the pump. The pump will do this if the cap isn't screwed back on. If you were checking fluid level you do this with engine off to give the fluid a chance to settle for a good reading. If I have misunderstood your question please get back to me. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Intermittent hard power steering, at the begining of the turn of the steering wheel, once disturbed past the hard part, works normal.
Had fluid change, I notice a sensor, on the control block tower of the rack, is this at fault ? thanks buckleyeng.

Whine usually occurs on tight turns maximising pump output and/or pump may be worn and needs replacement. Leakage can be from pump reservor,connection, or power rack and pinion steering assy. Spray off any area with a sign of fluid with a brake clean or carb. cleaner and look for signs of leakage.

No fuse, sorry. You likely have a bad pump. To test the pump, if you can squeeze the return line to the pump when the engine is running, the pump should wine.

Check the ends of your rack & pinion for signs of a leak. If a leak is present, replace the rack & pinion. If no leaks, maybe your power steering pump is going out.

Testimonial: "Thanks; gave good starting point; also relief from a possible major bill, like the whole steering column etc.....! Also, when I take it to a mechanic, I know to start with small diagnostics working up to $$$ expense. Meaning I'll know if a mechanic is taking me or not!"
