Fords don't use Windows XP Pro. And your power steering unit is self-bleeding. All you need to do is refill the resovoir and hope for the best. It may have been damaged by running without fluid, if so it will be growling when you turn the wheel and probably leak. Find a pump at a salvage yard for the most cost effective fix.

Power steering bleed valve

I don't know of any vehicles with PS bleed valves, would be surprised if Kia has any. The usual method to fill the lines and get air out, is to turn the steering wheel from stop to stop a few times. If wheels are hard to turn, you could raise both front tires off the ground. Keep checking the PS reservoir to top it up. And of course, car should be running. Don't hit the stops hard, just turn from stop to stop. Then let the car down and road test. If still stiff turning, repeat the procedure.

Have bled brakes after replacing 2 lines, wheel cylinders,master cylinder and pedal goes way down when truck is running

Make sure the rear brakes are adjusted up first. Often times it helps to let the system "gravity bleed" for a while. Open the bleeder screws and let gravity do the rest. Keep the master filled up and catch the run off at the wheel.Let it bleed until the fluid runs steady in a clear stream. This will remove most of the air in the system. Then you can do the "pump the pedal" thing.

Did you " bench bleed" the master cylinder before you put it on the truck? If not, do it now. Simply remove the brake lines from the master and replace them with short open lines to a bucket or even back into the master. Fill the resevoir and pump the cylinder until there are absolutely no bubbles coming out of the short lines. Then reattach the brake lines and start all over with the bleeding process. Hope this helps.

Your brakes are vacuum aided so when engine is off the pedal will be hard. When the engine runs the vacuum is active and the pedal becomes light. Your brakes are working but need adjustment so that the pedal does not go to the floor.
Locate the adjusting screws behind the rear wheel drums.
With one wheel jacked adjust the shoes till wheel wont turn.
Then loosen until wheel is just free of any friction from shoes.
Repeat for other side.

How do you blead the abs pump on a 1996 ford explorer

without a bleeder pump it is hard to do but you can do it by disconnecting the lines one at a time on the side going to the wheels, start the car have someone press on the brake and crack the line open do this till the air is out of the first line then go to next line and do all four lines, once you have done this then you will have to bleed the wheel cylinders starting from right rear or passenger side rear wheel the driver side wheel then passenger front side then driver side front, you will need engine running to power bleed the system, just stepping on the brake pedal without it running won't work, be sure not to let it run out of fluid as your bleeding the system or you could damage the abs system or the brake master cylinder.

If you had a brake job you might have air in the system that needs bleed out.
Crack open the bleeder on the caliper and watch the brake fuild come out steadly and close it and don't pump the pedal. Do this to each side this is called bench bleeding and watch the brake fulid level while you are doing this add fuild as you bleed each side.

Also sounds like a leaking line check under the car for a leaking brake line. Next would be a master cylinder problem. But more than likely a brake line might be rusted up and leaking, sooner or later you will not be able to stop. If its a leaking line it will leak all the fuild out of the master cylinder. You can replace the line and use the bleeding procedure in step one.
