Therr has to be air in the lines or the pump is about to go. There is a product that I would recomend, but is usually only at a dealer part shop. It is a BG product for power sterring pumps. Costly but well worth it maybe $20 a bottle. I recomend it so much becouse not only will this fix your issue, but you probably will never have to replace that pump this is some good stuff. I would not recomend unless I had tried it myself on a pump that was going out when I first purchased the vehicle aprox 75,000 miles ago. The pump is great has not even wined sence I used the product.

Is the power streeing fluid flled to the correct level? Check. With the car on, and someone turning the wheel right and left,(all the way) slowly, watch the fluid level. If it is dropping below full mark, add more fluid SLOWLY, as not to get any bubbles in it to correct lrvel.

On the rack and pinion steering gear there is a short shaft that couples with the steering column shaft by a flexible joint. Similar to a u-joint. To check it, get under the truck and push back the rubber protective boot where the steering column comes out of the firewall. Look for the flexible joint and check if it is binding or loose. Someone may need to turn the steering wheel back and forth while you watch it. You may need the front wheels raised to observe its turning action. There is a pinch bolt that secures the joint to the rack and pinion stub shaft, it may have come loose or the joint may be bad.

Ok I have a 98 z71 on my way home from my friends house tonight every turn i made I heard a LOUD popping clunking noise I could feel it in the floor and steering wheel it's on the front left side.....


Maybe.
Be aware of any changes to steering control. Is it pulling to one side? I have an 01 z71 and my issue, which sounds "similar" to yours is a dry secondary steering shaft which,apparently is common among these trucks. Ask your Mech. to check for that possibility while you're there.

Trnasmission going out, Did you know that reverse is the same as second gear. Does it slip in second gear are should I say have a hard upshift like around 20mph. Got a friend have them drive it in reverse and see how fast the drive shaft is turning also do you hear a whinning noise.

Hum in the front end of Z71 4X4 at 30 mph and above. Feel slight vibration in steering wheel and at gas pedal.


Have the drive shaft checked out. You may have a bad hub bearing or bad CV joint. Look for cracks in the boot, and grease that has been flung inside wheel well

Check your Power Steering Fluid. I would suspect its low, if so, you have a leak and the most common thing to leak is the High Pressure Hose. Have that looked at ASAP, you dont want to destroy the PS Pump.

Check to see if the power steering pump is still turning. If you have a broken drive belt (serpentine belt or "fan" belt), and the pump doesn't turn, you have no power assist. If the pump is still turning, check the fluid level in the reservoir.
