does that front end jacked up too?
if yes, binding is cause. if yes, drop tie rods and find who binds.
if turns easy now, then the power steering is bad.
is the PS belt slipping?
do the pressure tests? in the book.
You can possibly put a kit in the pump but my experiacne is that it will still leak and you end up putting on a new pump anyway.Verify that it is the pump and not a steering line ,if so replace the pump.
youre leaking steering box is most likely an easy fix, the leak can be rectified by changing the lower shaft seal but this means removal of the pitman arm. you can remove the seal and get it matched up at any industrial supplier
Generic to most pump controls, down increases pressure. If you are going to do this, I suggest you get a pressure gauge and connect it to the system and find out what the recommended pressure is. Turn adjustment in small increments 'till you reach proper pressure.
the power steering resevoir is underneathe the altenatror or your vehicle. you have a gm 3800 series II engine the resevoir is located near the fire wall on the passengerside right under the altenator. the easiest way to check this is to remove the altenator. I say this because there is not much room to put your hands in that area because your coolant overflow tank is there as well. disconnect the ground to the battery first. then disconnect the power lead to altenator. remove serpentine belt. then remove the plug from the altenator. remove the bolts to the altenator and move the altenator aside there you will see the resevoir for the power steering. installation is in reverse order... please rate this......thanks
