Note: Power steering fluid level must be maintained throughout bleed procedure.

  1. Fill pump reservoir with fluid to minimum system level, FULL COLD level, or middle of hash mark on cap stick  fluid level indicator.

Note: With hydro-boost only, the oil level will appear falsely high if the hydro-boost accumulator is not fully charged. Do not apply the brake pedal with the engine OFF. This will discharge the hydro-boost accumulator.

2.3. Turn the engine OFF.

  1. Raise the vehicle until the front wheels are off the ground. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle.
  2. Key on engine OFF, turn the steering wheel from stop to stop 12 times.

Note: Vehicles equipped with hydro-boost systems or longer length power steering hoses may require turns up to 15 to 20 stop to stops.

  1. Verify power steering fluid level per operating specification. Refer to Checking and Adding Power Steering Fluid.
  2. Start the engine. Rotate steering wheel from left to right. Check for sign of cavitation or fluid aeration (pump noise/whining).
  3. Verify the fluid level. Repeat the bleed procedure, if necessary.
