You are watching: Power steering pump blows fluid out from the cap

Power steering liquid comes out the cap, pump renders noise and it is tough to steer. I have the right to see fluid in the reservoir, on hood insulation, anywhere pump cap and AC unit. I guess liquid is coming out the feet in the cap.This started best after I replaced the AC compressor. I had actually to remove the high pressure line from power steering pump to perform so. I turned wheel lock come lock a couple of times to bleed and that didnt resolve it. Now I to be thinking as soon as the line was off the pump it got dirt or together in the line. Seems a plugged line would explain all of the symptoms.How carry out I trouble shoot this?

I guess fluid is coming out the feet in the cap.This started ideal after I replaced the AC compressor. I had to remove the high press line from strength steering pump to do so. Ns turned wheels lock come lock a couple of times come bleed and also that didnt solve it. Currently I am thinking once the line was off the pump it gained dirt or together in the line.

De airing the PS takes a small patience. Suck the foamy fluid out, and replace it. Start, ilde, turn the wheels back and forth, stop. Suck the liquid out, repeat, repeat, after a couple of the fluid will be totally free of air bubbles and it will be OK. I gotten rid of a PS to placed in a brand-new seal. Every empty. It only took perhaps 3 or 4 cycles to it is in quiet. I doubt air will ever before get out under driving conditions. -chart-

RE:I carry out not think plenty of of us have actually a vcuum pump or a stopper. Using the suck the out and replace it functions for those. The Vac pump and stopper is quick and also uses small added fluid, so that fine because that the pro shop.Now, if you are really creative, you can use engine vacuum and also make a stopper. :rolleyes2:The suck that out and also replace might take 15 minutes and also a quart the fluid. -chart-
