Question power steering fluid level does not settle reservoir

Hallo i changed the power steering pump with hoses on the wj overland,
I have followed the correct procedure on bleeding air out side the system,before i start the engine i rotate the steering wheel more then 20 times with adding and check fluid, i found a strange movement of the fluid as if i turned the steering wheel to left fluid inside reservoir rises up when i complete turning from left to right Fluid level falls.The power steering fluid level does not settle Inside reservoir also when i turned engine on.Is there a possibility the power steering fluid cooler clogged Is the cause of the problem.thanks advance for help

Re: power steering fluid level does not settle reservoir

Not sure if possible to swap, but are the hoses connected to the right sides?
Is the power steering working normally?

The fluid level will vary slightly as you turn the wheel from side to side normally.

Why did you change the pump & hoses?

When I changed my steering box mine looked like it was boiling/burping until I got all the air out of the system. You said you turned the wheel w/out starting the engine. You're going to have to start the engine so the engine pumps and circulates the fluid.

When I changed the gearbox I filled up the reservoir, cranked the engine real quick (turned off immediately), added more fluid, cranked again real quick, added more fluid, and repeated until it barely moved. Then I started the car and cranked the wheel back and forth several times until all the air was out. Until all the air was out, the reservoir looked like it was boiling (because that's where the air is coming out of the system).

I don't know exactly, but I would guess around 10 each direction. You can hear it make a different noise when there's air in the system (almost a screeching noise). I did it until that noise was gone and it sounded normal.

I also changed the gearbox, not the pump. But either way, you have to get the air out of the system.

Re: power steering fluid level does not settle reservoir

i think the hydraulic fan system needed more time to bleed the air out from the system,i had turned the steering wheel more than 20 times and the tires not touch the ground,but the fluid still flaunt and move,
Is this a normal condition because the fluid flow from the hydraulic fan and steering box.I checked a jeep laredo no hydraulic fan system the fluid on reservoir Calm and steady.

Re: power steering fluid level does not settle reservoir

The valve you are showing is part of the power steering pump. Since you changed that one, i would go back to the shop and get the pump changed.
