Customer Question

2001 chevy suburban, power steering return line popped off after shutting off truck, ...I reinstalled the line, still on power steering. Replaced the pump, refilled the system, still no power steering.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: No power steering at all. VERY DIFFICULT TO TURN THE WHEEL
JA: Are you fixing your Suburban yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Replaced power steering pump
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: The steering system has a power assist? a sensor on the pump.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

With the front wheels off the ground and the engine running. Turn the steering to full left and then right many times to bleed the system, does this help?

With the rpm raised does the assist improve?
