Sounds like the fluid under pressure is bypassing to another side of the control valves. Is it rebuilt, salvaged or new. Should be some kind of replacement gaurantee.

Hi,

You need to bleed the air from the power steering system, by turn the wheel to the hard lock on either side an hold it there for about 10 sec.

This should then bleed the air out and return your steering to normal.

Thanks

Jason

How to change power steering pump


  • Lift the front of the Camry with the jack. Put jack stands beneath the chassis to support the weight of the car. Take off the front wheels with the tire iron.
  • Unbolt the plastic apron seats on the inside of the fender wells with the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Put the drain pan underneath the power steering pump on the passenger side of the engine.
  • Remove the lines running into the power steering pump, using a line wrench, and pull off the vacuum lines. Loosen the adjustment bolts on the power steering pump with an open-end wrench, and pull the belt off the pump.
  • Unbolt the power steering pump from the engine block with the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket, then remove the pump from the vehicle

    I think that it is overstearing. It feels like your in 4 wheel drive when turning sharp, but the truck is not in 4 wheel drive (jacked up one side at a time, tires spin freely, also mech. shop checked...


    The tirerods on the burbans can get wedged when turning sharp. Have seen a couple do it.

    Just to double-check, you can Check for your stearing trim is in the middle and not pushed aside. Once you have done that, take everything apart, gears out and etc... turn on the car. Let the servo center and pop everything in as carefully as you can and close as the middle as you can. Re-assemble and see if it's any better.

    Also, check your servo wires leading onto the board. See if any of them are loose or have even fallen off.

    Another possibility that I have seen is when you turn the wheel all the way to the lock, the power steering pump is still trying to turn it further, which is why the steering feels jerky. You can blow up the pump, or a hose, by holding the wheel against the lock. You won't turn any wider if you let the wheel come back one quarter turn, but you will take the pressure off of the pump.

    Steering is hard to turn


    If it is hard to turn in both directions check power steering pump fluid level. Also with both front wheels off the ground key on engine off, turn the tires manually at one of the front tires and turn with the steering wheel engine off. Check for binding (they will require effort to turn) you are looking for a change in effort.

    Power steering


    Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.

    My 03 Wrangler shakes only at 45 mph


    My Death Wobble started immediately after I installed a set of Coil Spring Spacers (to lift 1.75 inches). Turned out, the DW was because while changing the height, I also lowered the CASTER angle in the front end. So, to fix it, I could have purchased a set of eccentric bolts for $50+. Instead I went out and purchased a piece of 1.5 inch flat bar for $10 from OSH. I cut out 4 1.5 inch squares. Then i drilled 7/16 inch holes centerline, but close to one side (in exactly the same place) on all for squares. I then removed the lower control arm bolts, nuts and washers. I installed these square offset washers I made so the front axle would be pushed forward (to increase the Caster angle). The toe setting changed a bit, so I reset them to about 1/8 inch toe in. After driving my Jeep, I noticed there is no more DW. The steering wheel was off center, but after 3 attempts, I have that perfectly centered. I have every intension of having the alignment checked, but not till after I find the new tires I want. If anyone is interested, I can draw out and photograph the cure and send it to you. My e-mail is bb62471(at)yahoo(dot)com.
