Where is the bleed valve for a power steering box


Open the hood and check the level of the power-steering fluid by removing the power-steering reservoir cap. Add the correct fluid recommended in your owner's manual to bring the level up to the full mark. Be aware that fluid that looks foamy is an indication of air in the system. Replace the cap.
Locate the power-steering bleed valve on top of the steering box near the bottom of the engine bay. Follow the power-steering, high-pressure lines from the power-steering pump to the steering box if you have trouble locating it.
Push a 6-foot length of rubber hose onto the end of the bleed valve. Run the other end of the hose into a drain pan.
Start the engine. Loosen the bleed valve fitting slightly with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction. Turn the steering wheel all the way to its stop one way and then the other several times. Shut the engine off.
Close the bleed valve by tightening it with an adjustable wrench in a clockwise direction. Remove the power-steering reservoir cap, and add fluid to bring the level up to the full mark.
Observe the power-steering fluid that came out of the rubber hose into the drain pan. Repeat the above procedure if there are air bubbles in the fluid. Close the bleed valve and remove the rubber hose when there are no air bubbles in the fluid expelled from the bleed valve. Close the hood.

same way as the 93 corolla, made same day. same plant.

fsm quote: for pump, because a hose is same and covered. here.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air cleaner.
  2. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
  3. Loosen the power steering hose retaining clip and remove the return hose from the power steering pump.
  4. Remove the pressure hose from the pump using a injection line wrench J-29698 or equivalent.
  5. Remove the upper mounting bolt from the pump.
  6. Remove the vacuum hoses from the power steering switch. Remove the 3 bolts retaining the pump bracket mount and the 2 from the engine block and the one from the engine mount.
  7. Remove the lower mounting bolt and the power steering pump from the vehicle.
  8. Installation is the reverse order of the removal procedure. Torque the power steering pump mounting brackets to 29 ft. lbs. (39 Nm). Connect the pressure hose to the power steering pump union bolt and torque it to 32 ft. lbs. (44 Nm). Adjust the belt tension and bleed the system.

Hey man a power steering pump is not to bad to replace.First you will need to remove the belt from the pump. Then you want to disconnect the hoses going to the pump. Normally one is what you call a banjo bolt with a copper crush washer, the new pump should come with one.. I suggest having a drain pan handy it will leak some fluid. After you have all the hoses off the pump then unbolt it from its mounts on the engine and remove the pump. You will need to transfer the pulley from the old pump onto the new one.Then reinstall the pump.After it is back in place and the hoses are hooked up you will need to bleed the system.There should be a small bleeder valve on the pump. Fill the fluid to full line open the bleeder a little and start your car then turn your steering wheel lock to lock left to right and that should remove all the air from the system. I would suggest having a friend help you for this just to make it easier. note while turning the steering wheel watch the bleeder when fluid starts coming out clear with out air bubbles your done and can close the bleeder.Also do NOT over tighten the the hose bolts they are not hard to strip the threads out of and then your pump is no good.I suggest looking up the torque specs. Hope this helps

1992 Pontiac TransPort Power Steering Pump REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect and cap the power steering pump hoses.
  3. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  4. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
  5. Remove the pump mounting bolts and remove the pump from the vehicle.

See Figures 1, 2 and 3

Fig. Fig. 3: Power steering pump mounting-late model vehicle shown

  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Tighten the pump mounting bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  2. Bleed the power steering system to remove trapped air. Air in the system could cause noise and or damage to the pump.

BLEEDING

This procedure requires the help of an assistant.
  1. With the engine OFF, the wheels off the ground and turned all the way to the left, fill the fluid reservoir to the FULL COLD mark on the fluid level indicator.
  2. With an assistant checking the fluid level and condition, bleed the system by turning the wheels from side to side without hitting the stops. You should repeat this at least 20 times, making sure to keep the fluid level at the FULL COLD mark.

Fluid with air in it has a light tan appearance. This air must be eliminated from the fluid before normal steering action can be obtained.
See Figure 4


0900c152801dbcfa.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 4: Power steering bleeding procedure

  1. Start the engine, and while it is idling, recheck the fluid level and add as necessary to reach the FULL COLD mark.
  2. Return the wheels to the center position. Lower the front wheels to the ground and continue running the engine for 2 or 3 minutes.
  3. Road test the vehicle to make sure the steering functions properly and is free of noises.

Need to replace power steering pump. whats the step by step way to remove and reinstall


Remove the accessory drive belt from the pump
Remove the pressure hose from the pump
Remove the return hose from the pump
  • Remove the bolts from the pump.
  • Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle.
  • Remove the power steering pump pulley from the pump
  • Remove the reservoir from the pump



  • e649177.gif
  • Install the pump to the vehicle.
  • Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  • Install the power steering pump bolts.
  • Tighten
    Tighten the power steering pump bolts to 34 N·m (25 lb ft).
    Install the return hose to the pump.
    Then just reverse what you did to remove.
    Once you have it al back together fill the resevoir.
    Do not over fill
  • Start the engine. Rotate steering wheel from left to right. Check for sign of cavitation or fluid aeration (pump noise/whining).
  • Verify the fluid level. Repeat the bleed procedure if necessary

    Steering Noise


    Power steering noise When the fluid is low and you add some ... it still needs more after you run it for awhile. The reason for that is that the pump pumps the fluid through the lines and gets out the air in them. Keep filling and checking after you start the car and turn the wheel from side to side all the way.

    • The bigger question is why do you need to add fluid? After you locate and fix that leak, you can address the whine. If it is a Ford, it may be somewhat normal. Like Drazi said, "It may be air trapped in the line." Or the pump may be damaged from running it dry, or there is blge in the line, starving the pump. Let's assume you have kept up on the maintenance and have flushed the fluid when it was dirty. Let's also assume that the pump is not damaged and you have found and fixed any leaks. Try this: pull the fluid out of the reservior and add one bottle of Lucas brand power steering additive, and top with power steering fluid. I have found this stuff pretty good at resolving many power steering problems. I'm not a big supporter of "Snake Oil", but have had good luck with it.

    • well" if it's a ford it's because they use plastic parts in there casing's. most other car company's do the same. if that's not the case, then your pump is reciving too much stress from turning. try lubing up the chasis and changing the fluid completly. it wouldnt hurt to check your line's ether. sometime's blockage can cause too much stress on the pump too.

    • First thing is why are you adding
    fluid. If it has a leak then i would address that problem first. A pump will not bleed out if it is leaking. If every thing seems to be okay and your pump still whines. Then replace the pump. Note my advice is replace the pump with a new one from the dealer. These so called rebuilt pumps that you buy from places like autozone o'rielys ect.. Are cheaply rebuilt. Especialy if it's a ford. They don't bleed out right improper pump pressures. A good pump will bleed out almost imediatly.With the turn of the wheel a few times. If it doesn't then your pump will more than likely never completly bleed out. Buy a pump from the dealer it cost more but if your like me and don't like the noise then it's worth it.

    • You probably have air trapped in the system. Bleed the air out by revving the engine to about 1500-2000 rpms and turning the steering wheel almost all the way from one side to the other a few times. This should bleed out the air and take care of your problem.

    • If the noise is similar to that of a dry bearing, then the problem probably revolves around the power-steering pump itself. If the noise you hear has a "click, click, click" to it when making turns in your vehicle, then the problem is more-than-likely your CV joints. If the noise is screeching, check your belt for wear-and-tear and proper tension (see owner's manual).
    I just wanted to add another two cents about the topic of bleeding or burping the power-steering system:
    1. Know what type of power-steering fluid is needed for your car. Some power-steering pumps can use automatic transmission fluid, others have specific power-steering fluid for each car i.e. Honda requires and suggests that you use Honda's brand power-steering fluid (see owner's manual). Make sure you know, or the warranty from the dealership or from the parts store may be voided.
    2. Before attaching the power-steering belt, fill pump with required amount and type of fluid, (see owner's manual) and turn the pulley wheel by hand a few times. This helps cut down on dry turns before they can happen. If more power-steering fluid is needed fill accordingly.
    3. Attach the power-steering belt with proper amount of tension (see owner's manual).
    4. Turn vehicle on and proceed to turn the steering-wheel all-the-way right and left 3-4 times.
    5. Turn the vehicle off and examine that the belt tension is acceptable, and again check the level of fluid and fill accordingly.
    6. Always, always check your owner's manual before performing any maintenance on your vehicle. An educated car owner is a safe car owner!





    Another possibility How long has the pump run without fluid for? There could be damage inside to the cam an rotor (assuming it's is a vane type pump), to the plates or it could be cavitating due to the ingress of air - possibly why the fluid leaked out in the first place.
