Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
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.
