Hi Guys, just purchased a 94 v8 soarer. very nice, even impressed the wife! The power steering pump started o make a noise like low oil. checked the reservoir, all OK. Got worse. upon closer inspection, it is spitting the oil out of the reservoir lid. big pool in the bash plate down the bottom. is that a blocked hose or something?
rob you should post under one of the other headings, maybe "general soarer chat" where more people will read it.the hoses can go hard and block.
try this to bleed the system. jack both wheels off the ground. turn the steering wheel to full lock and hold for a second or so. go to other full lock and hold for a second or so. keep repeating for half a dozen full locks each side. Engine is off, but ignition is on to allow turning of the wheels
Turn off the suspension in the boot before jacking up the car if airbags are still fitted.
