Hoping I can get some help here,
I recently had to change my alternator in my van ..In the process I had to move a couple of items outta the way to get the unit out and new one back in. One of the items I had to move slightly was the power steering pump....When I did so all I did was just remove the the bolts that hold the PS pump and slightly move the pump over(didn't remove any hoses)..the other was the PS bottle(didn't remove any hoses)& one of the timing covers.Before this simple task I had no problems wit my power steering,but ever since I replaced my alternator and put everything back in it's place,my power steering system has been whining.
I am very mechanically inclined so the first thing I did was chk for any leaks on the grounds & the fluid level and topped it off,once I did that, the fluid would overflow outta the bottle and I noticed that it was getting air in the system somewhere(bubbles in the bottle).After doing an inspection,I dont have any leaks,kinks,etc in the hoses.There's not much to a PS system,but its definite that I have a problem here and it's driving me nuts. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated...Thanks in Advance!!!
