A bench test of the unit is the most thorough way to tell if the pump is defective or not. However, you can perform a few tests of your own to get an idea of what the condition of the pump might be. Do this when the engine is cold.
1) Remove the fill cap on the reservoir, stick your finger all the way in, remove and look for metal shavings, bits of rubber or dark sediment on your finger. Also smell the oil, does it have a burnt odor.
2) Start the vehicle, turn the steering wheel right all the way to stop then all the way to left stop. Do you here a "hissing" noise when turning and at each stop. (normal)

Any other noises such as growling, grinding or swooshing noises will indicate a defective pump.

Good luck, let me know.
Regards

How do the power steering hoses go on on a 2001 Pontiac Aztek and why is there no circular motion inside the pump


The only squared thing on the pump is the "plastic"
fluid tank... Everything else about the design & function
is "circular".

There is ABSOLUTELY circular "MOTION" inside the PUMP...
PLEASE NOTE... there is a giant pulley on the front..
and the design of the pump is all about rotational force of the hydraulic pump (right THROUGH the middle).

High pressure to the high pressure...
(with a possible cooler option in the middle)
Low pressure back to the reservoir

I replace the power steering hose and try to bleed it but it mains stiff. more like manual steering as oppose to power


If the power steering had been run dry for a few days, this would destroy the P/S pump requiring replacement. If you have sealed all leaks, filled system with Dexron/Mercon, ran the steering back and forth(sometines this can and does take a while) to the stopping points, you will need to replace the pump. I would try raising the engine RPMs first and work the steering back and forth, you may just have a very very stuborn air bubble. Try this first and let me know how it went.

My granddaughter's 1999 Sportage steering makes quite a bit of noise when she turns the wheel...hard left at low speeds...especially when she has been parked.


Check your Power steering fluid, lines, and pump. It sounds like your pump is going out, however, check the lines before hand to make sure you haven't just lost the pressure.

The power steering suddenly went out on my 2000 Kia Sportage. No other problems, still drivable you just have to crank the wheel really hard. Where is the power steering fluid located? How do I check it?


Check to see if the power steering fluid reservoir has the proper amount of fluid. If the fluid is low you will hear a noise from under the hood and the steering will become harder. Look under the front of the car for oil leaks. The other thing is the belt may be broken or come off the pulley. Normally this belt is used for more than one item such as the alternator, engine water cooling pump or air conditioner compressor. If this is the case than one of the above mentioned systems would also have failed.
