Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist
do you have a hydrovac unit behind the master cylinder or do you have a brake booster???
if they have vacuum pumps, some do. I thought the same thing
anyway, if you replaced the pump and still have no assist the hydro vac unit has failed. most likely has debris that caused it to fail. when you replace it flush all the lines, steering box and the pump.
it does not have to leak to be bad. it has failed internally.
do you have pressure gauges to verify pressure to see if the newpower steering pump is working???
let me know
please dont forget to rate me as it is the only way I get paid for my efforts
bleeding is the same as a power steering pump. turn lock to lock to bleed the system.
ok, I am wondering if something got into the new pump and is not allowing it to build pressure
I understand but there are some places you cannot flush especially in the hydrovac unit
try flushing it again and if it does not work, replace the pump.
the bad hydrovac most likely caused the original failure of the pump and also caused the failure of the second
it may be moving fluid but it needs to push a lot of pressure. if you want to be sure, get a set of pressure gauges and check the pressure. you need about 800 lbs plus for it to work
