I changed the power sterring pump blead the system. I still dont have power.. What to look 4 next


What is year--make--model?
Usually with new pump, I rotate the old fluid out while putting new fluid in, that goes with the power steering pump change.
I take the return line loose from pump that should be low pressure line, usually held on with hose clamp. The high pressure line should have threaded fitting.
Aim the return line into container, turn pulley with my fingers, the old fluid should come out return line. At the same time, you have to add new fluid to the pump reservoir. When the fluid from the return line runs clear/new fluid, your done.
If no circulation, maybe a faulty or clogged power steering line?

Power sterring....where does it go


Should be in the manual. Check manual under maintenance. How do you know you are low on power steering fluid if you do not know where to add.

Power sterring is diffulcult, barely can turn sterring wheel.


Check the power steering fluid level.
If the fluid level is low, you obviously have a leak somewhere and it should be repaired. If the level is up, watch the power steering pump while the engine is running; is the pulley turning freely?
Power steering systems are hydraulic devices. The pump provides the pressure and the steering gear or rack and pinion assembly (depending on the vehicle type) applies pressure in the direction that you are turning the wheel to assist with the steering. When the hydraulics fail or when the internal components fail, your strength is the only thing turning the steering.
But start with the fluid.

Where do i put in transmission and power sterring fluids?


You put tranny fluid in the place you take out tranny stick to check tranny fluid level. You need a funnel. The power steering is the same. take off the cap and it has lines to tell you if it needs fluid. Add power steering fluid there.

My 1997 pontiac Grand prix power sterring is gone and hard to turn i think it might be the pump or sterring whell fluid but cant find it help me please


You might want to check the power steering fluid. The resevoir is on the passenger side toward the passenger seat it is kind of hard to find. But i have a '97 Grand Prix and i noticed that whenever i would turn sharp while going pretty fast it would make a grinding noise and i could feel my steering wheel pulling me. But the thing is the power steering never whinned or anything. So i checked it and there was absolutely none in there. So check the fluids first.

2006 330i Need to add power steering fluid, but can't identify which is power steering resevoir.


This is wrong!!!! This will destroy your car. The power sterring fluid say ATF only, putting power sterring in it will destroy the steering.

Power steering is weak and pump is whining, also the brakes are a little mushy. Is there a booster pump that affects both of these? Fluids seem fine.


If your power steering is whining you may just be low on power sterring fluid. I would check that first. If that is good your power steering pump may be on its way out.

There is a power brake booster in your system, but that should not affect if your brakes feel "mushy". I would look at the master cylinder, you probably need a new master cylinder they have a tendency to leak fluid past the seals as they age giving your pedal a mushy feeling. I woould also check your brake lines on each wheel to see if one might be leaking, this will give you a mushy feel as well. I doubt that is the case if you aren't loosing fluid however.

Drunken steering


This system has an electronic variable orifice steering system. There is a sensor on the column at the base, it is a 3 wire sensor. This sensor will give you the tight or loose feeling. It is easy to change with basic tools. The orifice this sensor controls is a 2 wire solinoid on the pressure port of the power steering pump. If you have changed the pump look to be sure you still have this 2 wire solinoid. Good Luck.
