How do I bleed air out of a new power steering pump? The mechanic said it'd work its way out,but it's not.

Remove cap fill fluid to cold line turn wheels to left stop then right stop do this several times until fluid is no longer foamy. Must be done with cap off to allow air to escape system.

Why is my power steering reservoir loosing fluid, what would cause the fluid to be "foamy" on top, and what should I use to fill it with?

spray down pump and hoses with degreaser and wash off. After its dry, use recomended fluid to fill. Start engine and turn steering wheel all the way left, and all the way right a couple of times. This will blead the air from the system. Now shut off and check fluid. Make sure it is full. Now drive the car down the road and make turns, and drive it back and check fluid level. If its still foamy and not leaking fluid, your pump ma be bad.

Dishwasher cavitates. I have a Smeg DI612CA9

Does the drain hose loop up to the top of the unit before going to the sink drain? If it goes down first it may be siphoning or draining by gravity.

Power steering foam

If its foamy than its cavitation. Let it sit overnight and see if it fluid is full in the reservoir. If it is than I would try flushing the power steering fluid. If its low top it off and check for leaks

Chainsaw difficult & sometimes impossible to start. Plug looks OK. 5 years old, just occasional use.

Yes. Whether storing your saw for a week or a month, a quality fuel stabilizer adds life to your saw. It can also keep it running with the type of problem your having. Double the recommended strength in your mixing fuel can and replace the fuel in your saw. Remove the spark plug and shoot a 2 second burst of lubricated starting fluid into the cylinder. Replace Spark plug and start your saw. Let it run for at least 2 minutes with the choke on then slowly increase the rpms as you push the choke in. If your saw stalls inside of that 2 minute window, do this procedure when it begins to stall out. If it still will not run, then your jets ( located inside the carb) are plugged up with varnish and you may need to rebuild the carb or replace it - it would be cheaper to rebuild and this is not a difficult job. If you choose to rebuild, get some starting fluid without lubrication to soak the jets in as you clean all the other parts. The starting fluid has a high level of Ether which will break down stubborn Varnish deposits.. Rinse all the parts in your fresh fuel mix ( oil, gas, and stabilizer). Re - assemble carb and flush your fuel tank as well. Put it together and then shoot a 2 second burst of lubricated starting into the cylinder through the spark plug hole. Install spark plug and follow starting procedure, foregoing the primer bulb. Your saw should now be running smoothly unless your carb is defective.
Good luck!!

Power steering pump is whining, and fluid is foamy any ideas.

It'll get foamy when there's air in the system, as you're likely to have with a leak or a low fluid level.

Let it settle back down to fluid, check the level, and top it off. If you're lucky, that'll get you running actual liquid again through the pump which should stop the whine for a while. If not, start by lookinf or and fixing any leak and move on from there. The steering gear doesn't like running on foam, and those puppies ain't cheap.

Saw has lost cutting power

Open the side cover and inspect the blade path and blade tension. Rotate the blade by hand looking for interference at any point. Make sure the drive pulley is not slipping on the shaft and that the belt is not loose or badly worn. Make sure the two large drums that carry the blade turn easily (dry bearing?). Does the motor slow down? Are the drum rim surfaces (rubber) in good shape? If the tension device is at limit, but not tightening the blade, the blade may be too long.
