Follow this steps


The items you will need include basic hand tools, shop rags, gloves, drip pan, fluid suction gun, power steering pump pulley removal tool, power steering pump pulley installation tool, power steering fluid, and a Haynes manual.


Use a suction gun to remove the power steering fluid.


Position a drip pan under the pump and disconnect the high pressure line and fluid return hose. Cap the ends of the lines.


Loosen the serpentine belt and slip it out of the power steering pump pulley. Replace any worn belts at this time.


Remove the bolts and nuts that hold the pump onto the engine.


Remove the pump. Now remove the pulley from the pump. To do this, use a power steering pump pulley removal tool. If you don't have one, you can rent one from Advance Auto Parts.


Remove the nuts to detach the pump from the brackets.


Reattach the bracket to the new pump. Reinstall the pulley.


Bolt the pump back into place. Slip the belt back onto the pulley and retighten. Reattach the high pressure line and return fluid hose.


Now fill the power steering fluid reservoir until it reaches to the proper level. Now start the vehicle. Recheck the fluid and add if necessary. Turn the wheels left and right a couple of times. So that's it, you are done. Test the vehicle to make sure it functions properly.

I replaced the power steering pump on my 2004 ford f150 and jacked the truck up in the air and with the cap off I turned the wheels back and forth to bleed. the steering is still tight is there a bleeder...


Leave the cap on the pump
Pull the injector fuse & turn motor over,
that's it.
Still tight-- then you have to check for ball joints,
or steering rack
Should be changing power steering fluid every 3 years,
as well as transmission or they both fail

Sounds like the power steering pump has failed.
You could take the serpentine belt off and check the pump pulley.

How do you get your power steering pump bracket off so you can get your power steering pump off a 2004 Ford Tarus


This may be helpful. Not familiar with '04, but 1998 Ford Taurus requires you to first pull off the power steering pump pulley using a pulley tool borrowed from a local parts store. The alternative is to break the pulley (plastic) with a hammer to get to the bolts and then use the pulley tool to
get the rest of the pulley loose and replace with another 10 or 11 dollar pulley after you have remounted the steering pump and bracket. The reason the pulley has to come off is there is another
bolt behind the pulley. Hope this is helpful.

2004 ford f250 powerstroke. brake pedal is hard to press at first then goes straight to the floor also power steering quit working at the same time.


Hmm.. Low fluid in the power steering pump, broken belt driving the power steering pump, failed component causing loss of power steering fluid, failed power steering pump.

Check for a broken belt first, check the oil in the pump, look for leakage under the truck.

If the pump is low on fluid you want to put about half the amount in that you're going to need and then start the truck and turn the wheel slowly from stop to stop, each way- spend about ten seconds going from one stop to the other. This will allow any air in the system to be purged out in a controlled fashion, it can really spray if you get a big, compressed bubble of air in the system and release it quickly. Shut the truck off and top the steering pump up, check for leaks.

Heavy as in ,stiff steering?
Not usually the pump. It's only money.
Lets go with a worn steering rack,after you check out the strut bearings,being worn/stiff etc.

2004 power steering pump whinning. Changed pump and noise is still present


Ford is notorious for having very noisy pumps. Yes even the replacement pumps. Having some noise in a ford is unfortunately normal.. but I would assume you may have dirty fluid still in the line.. Get the system flushed then see if it goes away. Good luck

P.S dirty or old power steering fluid can cause poor pressure in the power steering system hense the reason to flush the system

Slugish hard steering, already changed pump twice,


I think I would look at the steering box and the pitman and idle arms. Your steering box itself may be gunked up with sludge causing the poor steering of the truck. I do not believe it to be a sensor. I would find out if there was a way to flush the steering box or if you have to just replace it. I hope this helps.

Air in power steering lines


trans fluid and p/s fluid same thing thats fine. Did you fill fluid first before starting vehicle? These pumps burn up easily if run dry.
