What a PITA!

Removed all of the lines and blew out as much old fluid as I could. Added a filter on the return line and topped it off with Valvoline (MS5931 compliant) and proceeded to bleed the system. There is a bit of pump wine but it quiets down the more I drive it. The old pump was definitely going bad for some time. Glad that is done. This is the fluid I used: Valvoline.com > Products > Valvoline > Power Steering Fluid Valvoline > Valvoline® Power Steering Fluid

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Thats what I've used for power steering before, works well in the Jeep. My new pump whined for a while too, still seems to a bit more if I'm turning all the way but its full of fluid and definitely has more power than the old pump so maybe its just because its a reman. Definitely a PITA, but good to get done!

That echoes my experience. I drove it about 20 miles today and it did quiet down but is still louder than the failing pump. I hope the new one is not a bad one...

Did you properly bleed the system? You should do around 20 full throws of the steering to get rit of air. Also if your jeep has the hydraulic cooling fan, removing the coolant temperature sensor connector (in between alternator and AC compressor) will let the hydraulic fan go to full speed, and add in removing the air. You will only get a check engine light, which has to be reset afterwards with the help of a scanner.

I need to bleed the fan today. I forgot about that circuit. Got the steering box and other lines done without any problems. I also have an oil spot on the floor below it so I am expecting a loose fitting. Thanks for the reminder!

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Looks good! Did you get any peeling when you put the lug nuts back on?

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Lookin' good Aaron! I still love those green calipers.

So this weekend I'm finally replacing the rear axle seals, along with the bearings since they have to come off anyway. Also going to replace both rear calipers, there's something funny going on with the rear brakes so I decided its all going to get replaced, new(reman) calipers, R1 rotors to match the front and ceramic pads.

Also, if the parts arrive on time, I'm going to be replacing the rear upper ball joint AGAIN! Last one lasted about a year and a half... I'm done with Omix-Ada, I've had too many of their parts go bad. I'm going through rock auto, anybody have experience/comments about either Raybestos Profressional grade or Moog problem solver?

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Always go with Moog bro,that's all they do. Also on the rear brakes make sure you get the one's with the new mounting bracket. A lot of times the bracket is the culprit. Good luck bro.
