You need to jack up the front wheels with the key half on so the steering is free and the motor off turn the wheels left to right all the way slowly this will bleed the system repeat as needed one time will not be enough ,you can check with starting the engine and cranking the steering to see if it is free of air .

Power steering pump blew a hose off and now whines.

Have you checked the level of fluid in the pump? If it is full, you may have damaged the pump with it ran low. Try a Power Steering Lubricant first but if it is full and still making noise it is time to replace.

There are a few models that use the power steering pump at the booster for the brakes, but I doubt that yours is that. Look at the brake master cylinder. If it has this big round black drum, you have a vacuum assist and there is no correlation. If it has a couple of hoses going to an item behind the master that look like the hoses on your power steering there may be a correlation. Most of the diesels had the power steering booster.

Hope this helps

79 vette i changed the power assisted steering hoses

Sounds like you blew out the rack.Double check that you installed the correct hoses and fluid on/in the vehicle. Bleed the unit by turning the steering wheel from stop to stop while the vehicle is running until there is no foaming or bubbles in the resovoir. If this
doesn't cure it then take it to a shop and have them pressure test the pump and rack . The tester can be pricey and the procedure is a little dangerous. If you have the tester by all means use the service manual and it will tell you the correct procedure for hooking up the tester and how to use it. But be careful and wear safety lenses and gloves.Power steering fluid is very hot and the pressures are high. If you determine that it is the rack replacing this is an adventure and your gonna need a wheel alignment after its done. I suggest you take it to a shop where the Tech's are ASE Certified. Good luck and keep me posted

Power steering hose blew

Generally it should work it's way out by itself, but you can remove air by turning the wheels all the way in one direction (hold it there a few seconds) then repeat in other direction...check fluid level and that's all. If noise lasts more than a few hours, then pump has sustained some damage.

Power steering leak on a 1988 full size bronco

The gear box is a common problem on this model. That would be the place I would start. A cheap, temporary fix is to go to your local parts store and ask for Lucas Power Steering Stop-Leak. It will buy you some time.

Power Steering Recently my power steering pipe blew and started leaking due to it comming in contact with the engine. Is it possible to remove and replace this pipe or is it a sealed unit to the steering...

if it's the low pressure side i'm sure a mechanic can replace just the broken part. if it's the high pressure side, best off just to get a new hose. if not, the hose is likely to leak again on the high pressure hose if the unit isn't replaced.
