nwbronco Simple enough. You will need a clam shell type pulley puller. Do not use a fork type. The core is metal but the majority of it is plastic. Remove the lines from the pump, cover the lines with a platic bag and duct tape. This will keep yo grom losing all the fluid. Take the old pump off. Use the puller to pull the pulley. Use it again to install the pulley on the new pump. Install new pump. Re-connect lines. Top off start engine. Note level of fluid. Turn wheels from lock to lock a few times. Top off again if needed. Check system again after a few days to see if fluid level is satisfactory.

dltucker77 Thanks for the info. I am going to check on a rebuilt pump tomorrow. How hard are they to replace yourself?

3JKs1H1 degrease the area and lightly hose it off. The pump/steerign gear box, and anywhere the lines run. Air bubbles indicate a leak from somewhere, so you should see it on clean surfaces. It could be a loose hose, missing o-ring on a line, etc. If you cannot repair it yourself, I'd go somewhere else. If he isn't warranting his work (free) -he is either using bad parts or isn't very good at his job.

Power steering pumps require bleeding before you start the engine (same with replacing the steering box). If that pump runs dry for just a bit, it'll get ruined.

dltucker77 I had a guy that worked on it. Not sure where he was getting the parts or what brand it was. Yes there are bubbles in the reservoir. I wouldnt even know where to begin on replacing one or installing an inline filter. I just keep filling it up and rolling on.

ESP Are you replacing each time with OEM? Who is doing the work?

What he said. Got bubbles in the resovoir? I assume it's leaking out the shaft behind the pulley? Flush the system and bleed it. PS pump should last 100K miles. They make inline filters but that shouldn't be necessary.

dltucker77 Thanks. Like I said, I am fixing to have to put # 4 on.

07 power stearing issues

I have gone through two PS pumps. Seems like my third is playing out. I constantly have to put fluid in it because it leaks down. Anyone else having or had issues? Any solutions?
