Powersteering Pump

My buddy bought a 00 F250 4wd 7.3L. When he bought the truck the powersteering pump was making some noise,he bought the truck any way,so we changed the pump. It makes just as much noise as the first pump did. Any tricks on how or an easy way of bleeding the system. It also runs the brakes.(hydro boost system)

I believe it bleeds off simply by cycling the wheel back and forth.

I had a line go bad on my 00' and jacked it up and cycling the wheel back and forth. It helped some and I just drove it a while and it went away. yea you can tell with the brake pedal if all the air is out.

I know this is at least common to the super duty's. Mine did it since day one. Make sure you have the correct amount of fluid in the reservoir, and if it still whines (THIS IS JUST WHAT I DID:shrug: ) fill it with synthetic transmission fluid. I got that from another site and it seemed to hold up for 4 years with no whine:Thumbup:

Mine whines too. I10HaulR any specific synthetic tranny fluid? And what happened after 4 years? Did it explode or just start whining again.

A whining power steering pump is very common in Ford vehicles. Try doing what I10HaulR said and adding some synthetic transmission fluid to it, or even some Lucas Oil lubricant.
