Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

You don't mention what type of pump you're dealing with, but it isn't uncommon for anything remanufactured to be bad out of the box. There may be other factors depending on what system you're dealing with.

Is it a power steering pump that was replaced?

Hi, my name is***** installing the power steering pump on the SL it is necessary to prime the pump by applying air pressure to the power steering reservoir. Failure to prime the pump can result in the new pump failing if it runs more than a few minutes without a prime.

Let me know if you have any questions.

, I have a 2005 Sl500 and I bought a replacement ABC
I have a 2005 Sl500 and I bought a replacement ABC (rebuilt, with 3 year warranty) pump from a supplier and had my mechanic (Reputable foreign car repair shop) install it. The pump leaked badly within a day or two. I sent the pump back to the rebuilder thinking it was faulty. He told me that it wasn't, but he agreed to replace it anyway. He stated that the repair shop should have tested other components, such as the dampers, before installing the new pump. He said something about a gage that is needed. I had him call my mechanic and they talked. I guess the mechanic doesn't have the gage I'm still waiting to have further discusssion with the mechanic, but I'm assuming he will want to install the dampers and possibly other components. I guess I'm just looking for verification to see if all of this makes sense and if I should be doing anything differently? … read more
