Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

No I am installing a new pump and it comes with an overlow pipe What do I do with it The old one did not have that

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 2500?

2005

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 2500 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am replacing the power steering pump but the new one has two pipes coming out of the housing. One takes the fluid and the other is a overflow pipe. What do I do with it the original pump did not have the second pipe

The second line would be for the hydro booster. If your truck does not have a hydro booster, then just use a rubber cap off with a hose clamp to seal of the second port. There is no pressure on the res, so it is not that big of a deal.
