The system bleeds its self as it runs, the pump will eventually stop wining once the air is out of the lines.Let the van idle and turn the steering wheel full lock in each direction a couple time to move the fluid through out the system letting out any air.

Just did mine...unplug 2-3 of your plug wires so the vehicle doesn't start but turns over. Turn over motor a few seconds then refill power steering resevoir. Repeat until resevoir quits needing fluid...replace wires and drive slowly turning steering wheel from just short of all the way right then repeat to the left. This will get the air out of the lines. Check the fluid after this last step.

SOURCE: how do i bleed my power steering rack on subaru legacy rs turbo

A power steering dosent need bleeding. If you replaced it a week ago and was fine until now then it's not an air problem. Power steering fluid is pumped through the system even when the steering is not being used. Definatly not an airlock problem. Cheer's

I need to know where the bleed nipple is for a Peugeot 307 estate power steering fluid is. Sorry it says 504 but was no 307 option


hi.

i have never heard of a bleed nipple on power steering.

you just turn the wheele from full right lock to full left lock and back a few times and the system bleed itself.

if there is still a problem after doing this, then it suggests a fault in the compressor, or the rack itself.

How do i bleed my power steering rack on subaru legacy rs turbo


if its been a week, there should no tbe any air. if its heavy, the rack could be bad, or weak pump????? any noises? air will usually cause a whiney noise, and there will be air whipped, foamy fluid in the pump. A pump pressure regulator could be stuck open, not allowing full pressure? I would have a shop diagnose it, tell them the history and see if they can find a cause.

Check the power steering pump. Make sure that it is working correctly. You can have it checked at autozone or kragen . That is most likely your problem is that the power steering pump has gone bad
